EXTRA LESSONS:

In a previous newsletter in the first term,  parents of JS1, SS1 and new students were informed that most of their children were under observation. This term we arrived at a conclusion. These can be seen on the comments made on each child’s report. It appears that some children in SS1 made mistakes by choosing science subjects and therefore found it difficult to cope. We advise that the students concerned should change from sciences to humanities. However, those who do not wish to change from sciences to humanities because of their chosen future field require the sciences, will be assisted with extra lessons and will be contacted by SMS. They should also make extra effort from their own side to catch up with their peers. Some JSS1 students are yet to realize that they are now in secondary school and there are no parents or extra lesson teachers to assist them in completing their school work and home assignments.

     We are organizing extra lessons for students with challenges in one or several subjects in JSS1, JSS2, JS3, SS1 & SS2. Parents of such students will be contacted by SMS and are expected to make payment on time at the rate 5000 Naira per subject. Parents who do not wish their children or wards to participate should please indicate so to the School Secretary.      We observed that some parents didn’t pay until now for extra lessons attended by their children during 1st Term. I still appeal to such parents to kindly pay the outstanding extra lessons fee.SS3 students are already having extension classes in preparation for their external examinations.

7th BI-ENNIAL INTER-HOUSE SPORTS COMPETITION 2020:

7TH of March, 2020 has been fixed for it. We decided to make customized track suit for the students according to the colors of their houses. It will cost 5 000 Naira. The payment should be made in the Accounting Department of Cherryfield College. The parents can also pay 5 000 Naira for their one track suits to support their children’s houses.

ADMISSION, ADMISSION:

Admission forms into JS1 for the 2020\21 academic year are available. They can be obtained in the school premises at the cost of N10 000 only.
