PARENTS’ NEWSLETTER – 28/02/2019

Dear parents/guardians,

We are resuming today after almost 2weeks break for the Presidential Elections in Nigeria. Cherryfield College is located in FCT therefore will not any break during the governorship elections.

 The students have been given enough homework in all subjects for this short break and I believe they finished their homework and did the self education thereafter. The parents should always be aware and control free time of their children.

GOODWILL MESSAGE

It is a thing of joy and pride that your child is graduating in 2019 when Cherryfield College will mark 15 years of existence. It is also a thing of honour that your child will read your words on him/her. Send a goodwill message using the medium of the school Yearbook. A full page attracts a token of N50, 000 while half a page is N25,000.

CULTURAL DAY (16/03/2019)

This year’s Cultural Day will have a new modality and all our dear parents should actively participate. CFC students and teachers were divided already to 6 geo-political zones according their tribes. Their parents will belong to the same zones. The under listed names are the teachers – coordinators of different zones:

South-East: Ugwuanyi Emmanuel – 08064711206;

South-West: Jimoh Akanle – 07033401755;

South-South: Jackson Anietie – 07034628190;

North-West: Mallam Sanusi – 07039629470

There is a need at least for a volunteer parent as co-coordinator of each of the zones. The parents will be displaying their language skills with their children on that day. Each of the geo-political zones shall cook the different traditional food and provide disposable plates, spoons, forks and takeaways packs for those who would want to try a new food.

The parents and their children should wear only their traditional attire. I strongly believe the students’ traditional attire was ready during this short break and brought to school on the 28/02/2019. The parents and the students shall compete for Mr.& Mrs. Culture and Master & Miss Culture in each geo-political zones.
