PARENTS NEWSLETTER-14TH OF DECEMBER 2019

      Dear Parents and Guardians. You will be spending almost 4 weeks with your children and wards. I hope this period will be fruitful to both you and the children as you catch up on missed times and events.   I will advice that you create a balance between work and play during this holiday for the children. We appeal to you on this vacation to monitor your wards’ extra curricula activities and to curtail harmful excesses especially recreational. You have time to check the health condition of your children and we will not be expected to release any child for medical appointments booked after resumption.

     For those who are travelling abroad for the Christmas and the New Year, please do not forget the necessary period of acclimatization for the children. Remember to bring them back to Nigeria at least 3 to 5 days before resumption.

     We try to instill discipline into our students and we would appreciate it if you, the parents, will be exemplary in this too. We will expect every student of Cherryfield College to return to school on Saturday, the 11th of January 2020.  No children will be admitted on Sunday. Those students, who fail to return before 5 pm on resumption day without a good, provable reason, will resume a week later, on the 18th   of January 2020.  Bear in mind that the child will be missing 45 periods of study and will still face disciplinary measures for late resumption.

     Please endeavor to bring our children back as neatly dressed as on the day you took them from school. All boys should return to school with very low cut and the girls’ hair should be woven without attachments. All students are allowed wearing only school uniform provided by the College. Boys’ slim-fitted shirts, skinny trousers and girls’ slim-fitted blouses, short skirts and low-cut slim-fitted compound dresses, if found in children’s possession will be confiscated.

PARENTS OF JSS 1 SCHOOL STUDENTS

If your children or wards return home with empty or half empty cases and claim that everything was ‘stolen’ from them, please, make out time between 18th and 20th  of  December, 2019 or as from 6th of January, 2020  to come to the school with your child to recover the so called ‘stolen’ items.

I advise you to make a list of the items you are sending your children to school with, before bringing them back. I understand it might not matter to some people but this is not about being able to afford these items but about teaching the children responsibility and accountability.

PARENTS OF JS1 & SS1 STUDENTS

Some parents of JS1 and SS1 may not be impressed with the results of their children. However, you must bear in mind that this is a new stage for them. Their 1ST Term result is used to analyze the weaknesses and strength of each student. Their true potential begins to emerge during the 2nd Term, I assure you not to lose heart. Your encouragement and our hard work will bring out the best in them.

PARENTS OF JSS2 STUDENTS

All JSS2 students are to resumewith NATARAY mathematical set.

PARENTS OF JS3 STUDENTS

All JSS3 students are to resume with technical drawing board (ROTRING) and NATARAY mathematical set.

PARENTS OF SS3 STUDENTS

Newscasters: NNEOMA ALBERT (502)

Good Morning and a Warm Welcome to You All. My name is Nneoma Albert, your regular host, with the News.

The Headlines…

  • The New School Year Beckons with a Lot of Expectations
  • First Week of October Is Synonymous with memorable Events
  • CFC Strengthens Ties with More Diplomatic Missions

The News in Full

The 2019/2020 new school year in Cherryfield College commenced in earnest on the 14th of September with the return of all the old students, following the resumption of the new students and prefects one week earlier. The early resumption of the new students was to enable them get acclamatised amidst a series of orientations. The school prefects were on hand to help the new students quickly get adjusted to the school environment. In that regard, the college community is having high expectations in the new school year and this requires a sense of dedication to duty, self-discipline, team work  and tenacity across board. The Principal, Mrs Olga Igbo, stressed that much at the inaugural general morning assembly this term when she had called on the staff and students alike to be diligent on their duties in order to take the school to the greater height.

Every year, the first week of October is very unique in view of the memorable events that come with it. Tuesday next week being 1st of October of which our school will join the rest of our fellow compatriots across the country to celebrate 59th year of Nigerian nationhood. Four days later, precisely October 5th,  there will be World Teachers’ Day to celebrate teachers for their sacrifices and contributions to humanity. And going by the announcement made by Mr Bernard Egwu, the chairman of the Academic Staff Welfare Association, the school is planning big for the event. While there will be a novelty football match between the male staff and the male students, the female staff will square up against the female teachers in a relay race on that day. On this note, I wish to on behalf of the student body, wish our ever loving and enterprising teachers a marvelous and joyous World Teachers Day. May Almighty God bless you, strengthen you, and grant you wisdom as you continue to contribute to nation building.

Last Wednesday, September 25, Cherryfield College took another giant step towards expanding her ties with more diplomatic missions in the country by visiting EduUS Fair 2019. The two counselors led about twenty-two (22) students to the fair to get acquainted with how to secure admissions and visas to the U.S for further studies. Such a visit does not only benefit the students but also helps to strengthen friendship between Cherryfield College and the U.S Embassy.

Sports News

Cherryfield College will stage her 7th bi-ennial interhouse sports competition early next year. To this end, the sports unit has already announced the calendar for the training session of the four houses to run seamlessly. The fallout from that announcement was the house meeting that was held yesterday September 26 at different designated centres to rub minds on what to do to ensure a hitch-free exercise.

That ends the news. From me and the entire editorial crew, I’m Nneoma Albert saying bye for now.
