DEAR ESTEEMED PARENTS/GUARDIANDS,

With joy in our hearts, we thank the Almighty God for granting all our esteemed parents/guardians, staff and scholars a joyful Christmas and End of Year celebrations, journey mercies and good health throughout the festive period. We welcome you into 2014! To God be the glory!!

We also appreciate all our distinguished parents who through their gifts, prayers and presence, made our 2013 Christmas/End of year party a grand success. May God bless you all!

We warmly welcome you to this term which promises to be more fulfilling. It is our ernest prayer that this term will be eventful and successful.

LATENESS TO SCHOOL

We observed a slight improvement in punctuality of scholars to school in the just concluded term. Our expectation is high as there is a lot of room for  improvement since this forms part of our character development training for LWA scholars. On the challenge of late school bus pickup and drop off, the PTA has graciously set up an action committee to find a lasting solution. We thank you PTA for the steps so far, while we continue to appeal to parents to prepare their children early for pick up. From this term, parents of scholars who are brought to school after 8:00am would be requested to sign the register at the security post.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

We wish to appeal to our esteemed parents to encourage their child(ren)/wards to be more studious and hardworking. On our part, series of trainings have been organized for teachers with respect to a more efficient service delivery. Henceforth, scholars are expected to be more committed to their studies in the areas of;

-  Note taking,

-  Active class participation,

-  Assignments/projects completion, presentations & defense. Be rest assured of a robust academic term. Welcome on board.

COMMUNICATION BOOK


We thank all the parents who kept faith with our communication book by reading and responding to the issues raised. We use this medium to appeal to others to key into this opportunity and monitor their child(ren)/wards’ daily progress.

DISCIPLINE

We wish to encourage our esteemed parents to continue to partner with the school to instill and maintain discipline and sound morals amongst scholars. Parents should also respond to invitations to conferencing with the school management whenever the need arises, as this is meant to further better the lives of our future leaders.

On this note, we appeal to our esteemed parents to always make out time to respond to Conference calls concerning our children. We will not relent in our efforts to bring up a breed of well-disciplined and academically sound future leaders.

SCHOOL FEES

In line with the CBN regulations on cashless financial transactions, with effect from this term. We will only accept payment of fees through any of the following:

-       Fund Transfer through direct instant platform via individual banks.

-      At the school via POS.

-       On Line Payment via the school portal.

As the case maybe, parents should ensure that the names of their child(ren) with their respective classes are clearly written for ease of identification. We enjoin parents who are yet to settle their child(ren) bills to kindly do so to enable us serve them better. We trust God to always meet your needs. 

ASSESSING NEWSLETTER ONLINE

In order to save cost, the school will no longer distribute hard copies of newsletter, but appeal to parents to access newsletters through their mail addresses or through the Parent’s portal of our website.

VOLUNTEER PARENT

Once again, great volunteers have begun to emerge and we hail them for volunteering their services. This term, ahead of the commencement, we have the following:

Rush now to buy our meal tickets for your child(ren) and let them enjoy the hot cuisine from LWA kitchen. Your child(ren) must not miss out!

BASIC EDUCATION CERTIFICATE EXAMINATIONS (BECE)

LWA will be presenting her third batch of students for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in May, 2014. As usual, our students will be taking both National Examination Council (NECO) and Education Resource Council (ERC) examinations. The cost implication of these examinations has been included in the terms fee bill of the affected students. We appeal to our esteemed parents of the TCE 3 graduating class to complete all payment of their child(ren)’s fees not later than March, 2014.

In our continued effort to give our child(ren) qualitative education geared towards academic excellence, during the PTA meeting held on Saturday 16th November 2013, the following decisions were taken:

- Academic Detention of Students:

    Students who are found wanting in note taking, submission of projects; assignments should be held back in school to complete such tasks, subject to the prior notification of parents to pick up their child(ren) on such days.

Extension Classes:

    With effect from this Term, extension classes would be held for all TCE3 and BCE2 classes running through Mondays to Thursdays (between 3 – 5pm) and Saturdays from 9:00 am to 12 noon. This will accord the school ample time to prepare the students better.

EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES AND YOUR CHILDS HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT

We feel sad to note that most of our scholars detest enrolling in extra-curricular activities. Most who are forced to enroll, do so in less challenging areas. Sadly, some parents clearly make a decision that academics triumphs and must take precedence. LWA strongly disagrees with this philosophy and would like to take this opportunity to fight for the embracing of extra-curriculum in students’ lives.

We believe that all young people have a talent or area where they can excel. Finding talents within students that lack confidence, and those that are low academic achievers is exceptionally important. Normally, for such scholars, the talent will lie within extra-curricular activities, and could only be unraveled through building their character.

Extra curricular activities also teach our children the importance of perseverance, hard work training/Practice, commitment, diligence as well failure, and build up their competitive spirit generally.

In short, we believe that fostering an interest in activities beyond the classroom is of vital importance to a child’s development.

Note that extra curricular activities would:

Raise your child’s self esteem.

Harness talent, the right way,

Serves as stress busters.

Enhance good social life and integration for introverted children.

Allow and teach team work.

Ignite activeness among timid children and build self confidence.

Lead to better time management.

Conclusively, all LWA parents are encouraged to monitor and get their children to :

   -       Grab every opportunity given.

   -       Try out every thing positive.

   -       Be a part of any school extra curricular activities.

Our promise is that they will soon discover a new side to themselves, previously unknown.

Together, let’s make them the Heroes of their time!!!
