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

All SS3 students are to resume with their typed profile for the new edition of the Year Book.

EXTRA LESSONS

When you bring your children please check a list of students, recommended for 2nd Term extra lessons in the administrative office. If you don’t want your child to attend extra lessons, kindly write a letter to that effect.
