O

                                                                                      

ur Esteemed Parents,

 We appreciate God Almighty for the past nine academic years of this great academy.

COMPETITIONS

So far, the first half of this term has witnessed the Spelling Bee competitions; both at the intra and inter-class levels. Other competitions in the pipeline include the Maths Mole, Debate, etc. There are also external competitions, which we are preparing our scholars to participate in the course of the term. These competitions are geared towards putting our scholars on the front line to exposing them to the larger society.  

 

LWA/NCEE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION AND SSCE/BECE EXAMINATIONS

With our determination to exposing our pupils to external examinations, our extra lesson preparatory classes for 2018 National Common Entrance Examination is slated thus; Thursdays – 2:30pm – 4:00pm, Fridays – 1:00pm – 2:30pm and Saturdays – 9:00am - 12:00noon. These classes will commence on Thursday, the 26th day of October, 2017 and shall be in continuum till the examination day. Lesson fee – Thirty Thousand Naira (N30,000.00) only.

NCEE registration – N5,000.00 and LWA registration N5,000.00.

Scholars on bus shuttle shall be conveyed home on Thursdays and Fridays respectively. Note; parents are to drop off and pick their wards on Saturdays.

The Saturday extension classes for the secondary section are ongoing for the TCE3 and BCE 3 students. Time is 9:00am – 12noon. We encourage parent to take this advantage by enrolling their wards.

 

EXCELLENT ELEPHANT SUMMER TREAT

    

Our Summer Treat kicked off on the 31st day of July, 2017 and ended on the 25th August, 2017. The Treat was awesome as scholars were treated to sound academic activities, crafts, bakery, exercises, sports, etc. It was a very educative and informative treat. Our scholars visited Staff Hospital, Gwarinpa, for community service and also visited Mother Theresa Orphanage Home, Gwarinpa with gift items. We appreciate our parents for the support which saw us through these visits.

 

Scholars were treated to the closing party at Starview Hotel where they had so much fun.  

 

 

 

 

EDUCATIONAL VISITS

     

We will always maintain our standard in keeping our scholars abreast of the trends in our community and society by visiting the most educative, informative and interesting sites. We have outlined various sites of interest to be visited by our scholars in the course of this term. These places of interest have been carefully selected for maximum satisfaction of our scholars. 

 

COMMUNICATION BOOK

The use of the Communication Book as a link between the school and home is a standard we have maintained and will keep it up. Your response to our observations and issues raised will enable us offer you the very best. Kindly communicate using this medium any time a child is on medication and any official issues that concerns your child(ren) as none written communication shall not be honoured.  We plead once again that you endorse the relevant portion of the book on a daily basis. Feel free to indicate your area(s) of concern and useful suggestions.

We have noticed that some students have refused to avail their parents the Communication Book. In such a case, notify the school authority and demand for it. It is a school – parents’ communication book and is meant to enhance free flow of information as well as aid prompt interventions as the case may be.

 

UNIFORMS

 

LWA uniform is her identity! As part of our standards and quality assurance of the school, students/pupils are expected to come into school well groomed at all times. On the strength of this, we solicit that parents make conscious efforts towards procuring at least two sets of uniforms for their child(ren) at the beginning of every academic year. We enjoin parents of returning scholars, in particular to please check the uniforms of their child(ren)/ward(s) and kindly replace faded, tattered and torn uniforms. Undersized shorts, skirts, pinafores or trousers are not accepted. Note that children grow at a very fast rate and outgrow their wears too. Please, also note that there are slight changes in the prizes of these uniforms; this is because of the new order (purchase) made.  Furthermore, school shoes are covered black shoes with no heels and white canvas for sports days. The approved socks are plain white socks. (Available in the school store) Please, only pin earrings (small studded) are allowed for girls and well kept hair cut for the boys. 

 

 

OPEN DAY

The 2017/2018 academic session, first term open day is slated for the 18th day of October, 2017. We applaud our parents who have always availed themselves the opportunity by coming in to assess the performances of their wards. This act showed the support from the home front as the children need to know that there is support and follow-up from the home in order to “keep them on their toes”. Remember, our doors are always open for audience with any of the management team members; the Chairman, Principal and Head Teacher. Feel free to book for a one-on-one, parent-pupil/student-school conference any time.

 

 

SCHOLARS & QUALITY ASSURANCE

The LWA bench mark still remains 70%. We assure our esteemed parents that all parameters are in place to enable us achieve the above bench mark. We enjoin every parent to keep partnering with us by playing their roles from the home front. This shall enable us serve you better. The first Quality Assurance Assessment was a huge success as scholars performed excellently.

 

 

FRIDAY THEMES

       

                                

We wish to continually appeal to our esteemed parents not to relent in their efforts in ensuring the LWA’s vision of developing the total child. With Friday theme, we vigorously pursue the exposure of our scholars to global issues. This is geared towards making them fit to compete with their counterparts both within and outside the shores of Nigeria.

Our Friday theme encourages research, critical thinking, self confidence as presentations are made by the writer which, brings out the best in our scholars. So far, we have had the Folk Music week, LWA Riddle and Joke week, LWA Science week and the LWA Book day. We promise to uphold this standard.

 

DISCIPLINE

We have sustained a more disciplined atmosphere so far this term, considering the fact that over the years, there has been significant improvement in scholars’ discipline. We attribute this to the support of most parents who in partnership with us, inculcate sound morals in the children. We sincerely encourage our esteemed parents to continue with this laudable practice at home as we promise to keep counseling and correcting them on unacceptable and unusual behahviour, thus producing better Nigerian children. We use this medium to appeal to parents to always make sure that their wards (the boys) hair is cut low at all time, while the girls should keep a nice and well plaited hair do.

 

 

LATENESS TO SCHOOL

 We must commend the efforts of our parents on the improvement we have noticed in punctuality so far this term. Our expectations are high, so, we still appeal that more commitment be made, since this forms part of our character development training for LWA scholars. Resumption time is on or before 7:45am and all students are expected to be in school latest by 7:30am daily. We appeal to parents to please assist the school to entrench punctuality in our children. Remember, lateness to any programme is globally taken as indiscipline.

 

As a follow-up, the policy of locking the school gate after 8:00am or requesting defaulting parents to sign in their wards will fully be enforced. Please note that where this becomes a routine, the parent(s) in question shall be requested to meet with the school management team for conferencing.

 

 

SPORT DAYS

    

We wish to remind our esteemed parents of our sport days; Pre-school, Lower Primary and Secondary – every Wednesday while Upper Primary is every Thursday. Scholars are to appear in their sport wear on these days.

 

VOCATIONAL DEPARTMENT

      

We assure our esteemed parents that we shall continually maintain our scholars’ entrepreneurial skills through various well packaged programmes in the vocational department. Entrepreneurial skills cannot be over emphasized in our today world. That is why we believe in equipping our scholars to face the society as they graduate from the academy. This department is well equipped so as to develop talents and skills embedded in our scholars. This is achieved by the use of waste materials, natural resources within the environs as well as the use of the computer. These materials and resources include; newspapers, raffia palm, clay and the likes. Our scholars are also taught how to bake, make natural fruit juice, liquid soap, izal, odour control, shampoo, body creams amongst others.

We appeal to our esteemed parents to encourage their wards to carry out whatsoever they have learnt in school at home. Parents should please provide them with necessary materials.

 

TERM’S PROJECT

We appreciate the support and efforts of our esteemed parents who worked with us in seeing that scholars did and submitted their projects. The deadline for submission of project for the secondary school is the 15th day of November, 2017.

Our primary pupils have been given their midterm assignment, which they are expected to submit upon resumption to school on the 23rd day of October 2017.

We continue to solicit the support and cooperation of our esteemed parents to minimally put their ward(s) through in carrying out all their assignment and projects.

We appeal to parents to always stick to the deadlines for submission of these projects and assignment. Minimal adult guidance/assistance is allowed (where necessary) whenever these projects and assignments are given.

 

 

LWA SAPPHIRE CRÈCHE (4 MONTHS and ABOVE)

Our crèche service is second to none. Our crèche is fully air-conditioned and well equipped for your baby’s safety and pleasure. We still have very few available spaces on a first come, first serve basis. Don’t miss the opportunity of this conducive and safe environment for your baby.

 

MENTORING (PRIMARY AND SECONDARY)

Wow! The compulsory mentoring in the primary and secondary sections of the academy was result-oriented in the last academic session. This mentoring which held every Thursday between 3pm – 4pm has come to stay. We wish to remind our beloved parents of the closing time by 4:00pm for pick up of their wards. Kindly cooperate with us so that we can serve you better. We thank you for keying into our vision.

 

 

BUS SERVICE

 We thank our esteemed parents who make use of our bus shuttle. We appeal to all our parents whose children use the bus service to please always make payment before the resumption of any term so as to enable us have adequate preparation for a smooth take off of the term. Note that scholars who do not pay by resumption shall not be picked or returned. We are thanking you for your prompt response. To assist us serve you better, parents are encouraged to always counsel their wards on best behaviour during bus shuttle. Parents should always make ready their wards before the arrival of the bus as a minute extra spent in one house definitely distorts the routine of that particular bus.

We are appealing to parents who do not use the bus service to always pick up their wards immediately the school closes. We observed have that some parents still pick up their ward(s) late after school hours. This is not healthy for our scholars.

We also use this medium to appeal to parents not to allow minors to drive their ward(s) to school.

 

 

LOST BUT FOUND ITEMS

This is to remind our parents and guardians that some misplaced items (cardigans, school ties, blazers, water bottles etc) are in the school store. Parents are advised to kindly visit the store for identification, confirmation and collection. Please note that evidence of ownership shall be required for collection. Labeling of ward’s item for easy identification is highly recommended.

 

EMBARKING ON JOURNEY

 

During this midterm break, we appeal to parents wishing to travel with their child(ren) to do so with safety. We appeal to parents to be back in good time so as to get their ward(s) to resume on the 23rd day of October, 2017, as studies resume same day. We wish all our scholars and parents intending to travel journey mercies as you embark on your various trips. Thanking you for your understanding and co-operation.

 

 

CONFERENCING

 

Conferencing has over the years created an enabling platform for the school and parents to dialogue on issues affecting our scholars. This trend shall always be operational in the Academy. We appreciate our esteemed parents who have always responded to invitation for conferencing and appeal to others to always respond to this call. We wish to remind you that the duty of raising a child is a collaborative effort of both the parents and the school. To enable us achieve this great task, parents should always take conferencing as a platform to dialogue and partner with the school to bring out the best in the children. We advise our parents to take advantage of this great opportunity.

 

DISRUPTION OF CLASSES BY PARENTS

In line with our school’s policy, no parent is allowed into the class unless on special occasion as maybe permitted by the school authority. Parents are, therefore, advised to ensure scholars come to school with their lunch packs. Better still, lunch will be served in school. Please, help us to serve you better.

We wish to notify our esteemed parents to always sit in the school hall as they come for pick up of their ward(s) at closing hours. We assure you that our staff shall always be on the alert to attend to you.

 

BALLET CLUB

      

Ballet is an artistic dance form performed to music which requires precise and highly formalized set steps and gestures. In LWA, we strive for excellence in all that we engage in. The club performances of the last academic session has was splendid. This was evident in their performance during the cultural day, 2016/2017 speech & prize giving day etc. We believe that this will go a long way in promoting a better posture, sculpts and tone as well as develop the body of scholars. Other benefits include; relief of stress, body flexibility and creative expression of the body. We encourage parents to allow their ward(s) to key into this great club of ours.

Ballet Club is fun-fiiled and interesting, come join us!

 

GYMNASTIC CLUB

    

The last academic year witnessed the introduction of Gymnastic club. Scholars are already having fun in each session as this shall also keep our scholars fit and smart for the day to day activities. The club activities have begun this term. We encourage parents to avail their wards this great opportunity as the new academic session begins. You never can tell, your ward(s) could go global through this club.

 

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

    

Our Entrepreneurship club is geared towards equipping our scholars with skill to be able to fit into our present day economy. We do not only prepare them academically but also sharpen their skills to becoming entrepreneurs. In this club, scholars are taught to make some cleaning agents, coconut oil, coconut chips, zobo drink, smoothie and baking. Items made by the scholars were displayed for marketing in the school compound which some parents patronized. We say a big thank you.

 

SPELLING BEE/BOOK FAIR

      

Whaooo! Our class Spelling Bee competitions for this term was awesome. This competition was keenly contested for. Richard Aniedi emerged the winner while Dorika Shekari came second and the third position went to Enwefah, Emmanuel. In the pre-school, Yasil Salisu emerged first, the second position went to Shuriam Aliyu and the third position went to Ogechukwu Ibekwe. We congratulate these excellent scholars and all our scholars for their active participation during the programme.

We laud Dr. and Dr. (Mrs.) Enwefah that featured in the Mask Reading during the grand finale of the week’s programme. We appreciate you much, thank you and God bless. Watch out for second term’s Spelling Bee competition.

 

INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION

 

As Nigeria celebrates her 57th independence, the LWA family celebrates with her. It was a very wonderful merry making as the Academy joined all Nigerians in marking the event. The Scholars dressed in a touch of green and white and came with the Nigerian flag to school. Prayers were offered for the leaders of the country and peaceful co-existence of all Nigerians.  

 

PHONICS

In LWA, we strive to maintain the global standards. This is why we have introduced phonics as we have gotten two new phonic teachers to handle our scholars.  This shall boost our scholars’ fluency in spoken and written English. They will be able to speak with the right and correct diction and articulation thus, enhancing their writing and speaking skills. We encourage our dear parents to key into this development as we take our scholars’ spoken English to the next level.

 

 

 

VOLUNTEERING

We encourage our esteemed parents to partner with us so as to enable us safeguard the future of our children. We wish to appeal to parents to volunteer in any way they can e.g. fueling of the school buses, diesel for the generating plant, getting books for the library, facilitating of training session for both scholars and members of staff, purchase of water for our water dispensers etc.

We use this very medium to thank Mr. and Mrs. Azubike Dike and family for  their kind gesture in donating 6 sets of  sanitizer dispensers, a first aid and 10 500ml containers of hand sanitizers to the Academy. We are most grateful to you as you have displayed your commitment as a partner in the holistic development of the total child, which is our topmost priority.

 

CHRISTMAS PARTY

This year’s Christmas party promises to be a boom! The date for this event is the 30th day of November, 2017. We appeal to our esteemed parents to, as usual, support us to make this day a memorable one for our scholars. We will keep you posted as we draw close to the date.

·      Optional snacks

For the purchase of snacks, soft drinks, juice and other materials, parents are advised to effect payment in the account department for proper documentation. Remember that scholars are not allowed to bring money to school. Adherence to the above arrangement will be highly appreciated and will assist us to serve you better.

 

DYNAMIC PROGRAMME

This programme has been fully initiated in LWA. Some scholars have been identified as challenged in Mathematics, English and Sciences through our checklist assessment. Strategies have been put in place to help the scholars concerned manage their areas of weakness and still maintain the same pace with their mates.

Conferencing of the parents concerned was held in January 2017, to enable us collaborate with the scholars’ parents for an excellent result. So far, a lot has been put in place since the inception of this programme and we believe that parents are seeing the result.

 

LWA has introduced an innovative way to help scholars with learning difficulties with the establishment of the Dynamic Unit (Part of Special Education Needs Unit). One of the aims of the department is to ensure that all our scholars can access the curriculum readily and work to their full potential. These pupils have been placed on an Individual Educational Plan (IEP). This is a teaching and learning plan that sets targets and actions for the scholars. This plan is different from, or in addition to other plans that are in place for the class. At LWA, we believe that it is very important for parents and scholars to be involved and aware of the targets set in the plan. The IEP allows us to plan for progression, monitor the effectiveness of teaching and the provision for additional support. The Dynamic pupils’ academic, social and behavioral performances for the last two terms speak for the unit and are evident in their results. Parents are strongly advised to track our progression as we promise to sustain this programme.

 

 

ADMISSIONS

Admission for the 2017/2018 Academic Session is still in progress. Enroll your child(ren) now into Crèche, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, Primary, Junior and Senior Secondary Schools. LWA is the school for your child. Please endeavour to tell your friends, relations and neighbours about us. We are “THE PERFECT LINK TO EXCELLENCE”.

ACADEMICS

Image result for pictures of academic excellence

The third term, 2016/2017 academic session commenced on the 24th day of April, 2017 and so far, we have witnessed a lot of academic and co-curricula activities. Scholars are very serious with their studies knowing fully well that this is the promotional term. This is reflected in their first Continuous Assessment and First Quality Tests respectively. The co-curricula programmes have been excellent so far and there are more ahead of the term. These show our scholars’ readiness to study. We implore parents not to relent in their efforts from the home front to encourage their ward(s) to study hard when they are at home. Our dear esteemed parents, be rest assured of our commitment to academic and moral excellence. 

 

COMPETITIONS

In order to maintain our academic standards, we had lots of intra and inter-class competitions amongst our scholars. The internal competitions which scholars engaged in this term were; Current Affairs Competitions, Spelling Bee, Maths Mole, Quiz and Debate.

 

SSCE/BECE EXAMINATIONS

The Examinations commenced on the 31st day of March, 2017 and 24th day of April, 2017 respectively. We wish our excellent scholars goodluck as they prepare for the examinations.

 

LWA/NCEE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION

Lordswill Academy’s entrance examination took place on Saturday 18th March, 2017.A total number of eleven (11) pupils of JPL 5 sat for it. The result is mind blowing as all of them made us proud. The NATIONAL COMMON ENTRANCE EXAMINATION organized by the federal government of Nigeria was written on Saturday 8th April, 2017. We still await the result as it is yet to be released.

 

EXTENSION CLASSES FOR JPL 5

The extra lesson introduced to prepare the JPL 5 pupils for external examination was a huge success. The lesson took off on Saturday 21st January, 2017. The days for the lessons were Thursdays 3:00pm to 4:00pm, Fridays 1:00pm to 2:30pm and Saturdays 9:00am to 1:00pm. The success of this program is evident in the results of our pupils that sat for the LWA entrance examination and other school’s entrance examination.

 

GOODNEWS: We are delighted to inform our esteemed parents that the extra lesson is a standing program that will be sustained from this term forward. This lesson includes the preparation of scholars into Loyola Jesuit Entrance Examination. We urge you to enroll all JPL 5 and 6 pupils every term.

 

EDUCATIONAL VISITS

    

Keeping our scholars abreast of the trends in our community and society at large is part of the curriculum which we aim to achieve through educational visits to various sites of interest. This term, in the seventh week, the secondary section embarked on their educational visit to the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON), Abuja on the 16th day of March, 2017. The Primary section visited Lobic Motors Nig. Ltd on the 7th day of March, 2017 while our pupils in the Pre-School made their educational visit to Domino’s Pizza on the 6th day of March, 2017. These places of interest were carefully selected so as to expose our scholars to the world of entrepreneurship and career. 

 

COMMUNICATION BOOK

The use of the Communication Book as a link between the school and home is a standard we have maintained and will keep it up. Your response to our observations and issues raised will enable us offer you the very best. Kindly communicate using this medium any time a child is on medication and any official issues that concerns your child(ren) as none written communication shall not be honoured.  We plead once again that you endorse the relevant portion of the book on a daily basis. Feel free to indicate your area(s) of concern and useful suggestions.

We have noticed that some students have refused to avail their parents the Communication Book. In such a case, notify the school authority and demand for it. It is a school – parents’ communication book and is meant to enhance free flow of information and aid prompt interventions as the case may be.

 

UNIFORMS

LWA uniform is her identity! As part of our standards and quality assurance of the school, students/pupils are expected to come into school well groomed at all times. On the strength of this, we solicit that parents make conscious effort towards procuring at least two sets of uniforms for their child(ren) at the beginning of every academic year. We enjoin parents of returning scholars in particular to please check the uniforms of their child(ren)/ward(s) and kindly replace faded, tattered and torn uniforms. Undersized shorts, skirts, pinafores or trousers are not accepted. Note that children grow at a very fast rate and outgrow their wears too. Please, also note that there are slight changes in the prizes of these uniforms; this is because of the new order (purchase) made.  Furthermore, school shoes are covered black shoes with no heels and white canvas for sports days. The approved socks are plain white socks. (Available in the school store) Please, only pin earrings (small studded) are allowed for girls and well kept hair cut for the boys. 

 

OPEN DAY

Third term 2016/2017 academic session Open Day held on the 31st day of May, 2017. We laud our parents that availed themselves the opportunity and came in to assess the performances of their wards. That singular act showed the support from the home front as the children need to know that there is support and follow-up from the home in order “to keep them on their toes”. Remember, our doors are always open for audience with any of the management team members; the Executive Director, Principal and Head Teacher. Feel free to book for a one-on-one, parent-pupil/student-school conference any time.

 

SCHOLARS & QUALITY ASSURANCE

The LWA benchmark still remains 70%. We assure our esteemed parents that all parameters are in place to enable us achieve the above benchmark. We enjoin every parent to keep partnering with us so as to enable us serve you better.

 

 

FRIDAY THEMES

    

With Friday themes, we vigorously pursue the exposure of our scholars to global issues and standards. This is geared towards making them fit to compete with their counterparts both within and outside the shores of Nigeria. Our Friday themes encourage research, critical thinking and self confidence as presentations are made by the writer which brings out the best in our scholars.

In a bid to step up our learning processes through our Friday Themes, this term’s themes were role played by our scholars. It was wonderful and captivating! This process of role play brings out hidden talents and skills embedded in our scholars. We wish to continually appeal to our esteemed parents not to relent in their efforts in ensuring the LWA’s vision of developing the total child. You are the best parents ever!

 

DISCIPLINE

We have sustained a more disciplined atmosphere so far this term, considering the fact that over the years, there has been significant improvement in scholars’ discipline. We attribute this to the support of most parents who in partnership with us, inculcate sound morals in the children. We sincerely encourage our esteemed parents to continue with this laudable practice at home as we promise to keep counseling and correcting them on unacceptable and unusual behahviour, thus producing better Nigerian children.

 

LATENESS TO SCHOOL

 We must commend the efforts of our parents on the slight improvement we have noticed in punctuality this term. Our expectations are high, so, we still appeal that more commitment be made, since this forms part of our character development training for LWA scholars. Resumption time is on or before 7:45am and all students are expected to be in school latest by 7:30am daily. We appeal to parents to please assist the school to entrench punctuality in our children. Remember, lateness to any programme is globally taken as indiscipline.

 

As a follow-up, the policy of locking the school gate after 8:00am or requesting defaulting parents to sign in their wards will fully be enforced. Please note that where this becomes a routine, the parent(s) in question shall be requested to meet with the school management team for conferencing.

 

SPORT DAYS

  Image result for pictures of sporting activities  

We wish to remind our esteemed parents of our sport days; Pre-school, Lower Primary and Secondary – every Wednesday while Upper Primary is every Thursday. Scholars are to appear in their sport wear on these days.

 

 

 

VOCATIONAL DEPARTMENT

       

Entrepreneurial skills cannot be over emphasized in our current day economy; this is why in LWA, the Vocation Department is poised to develop talents and skills embedded in our scholars. This is achieved by the use of waste materials, natural resources within the environs as well as the use of the computer. These materials and resources include; newspapers, raffia palm, clay and the likes. Our scholars are also taught how to bake cake, make natural fruit juice, liquid soap, izal, odour control, shampoo, body creams amongst others.

We appeal to our esteemed parents to encourage their wards to carry out whatsoever they have learnt in school at home. Parents should please provide them with necessary materials.

 

 

TERM’S PROJECT/ASSIGNMENT

Deadline for submission of project was the 12th day of May, 2017. We appeal to patents whose child(ren) are yet to submit their project, to please assist their ward(s) do so. We continue to solicit the support and cooperation of our esteemed Parents to minimally put their ward(s) through in carrying out all their assignment and projects. We applaud you, our esteemed parents as you help them with the various materials they need to carry out these projects and assignment.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

Minimal adult guidance/assistance is allowed (where necessary).

 

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMME IN PRE-SCHOOL

Our after school programme for the Pre-school scholars is still running. Time for the programme is 1:30pm – 5:00pm on Mondays through Fridays. Special teachers are assigned to take care of pupils; educative programmes are designed for them, inclusive of cartoons. Those are played for them while they are always properly taken care of. An additional Ten Thousand Naira (N10,000.00) only shall be added to school fees for interested parents.

 

LWA SAPPHIRE CRÈCHE (4 MONTHS and ABOVE)

This has been on board fully since September, 2016. Our crèche is fully air-conditioned and well equipped for your baby’s safety and pleasure. We still have very few available spaces on a first come, first serve basis. Don’t miss the opportunity of this conducive and safe environment for your baby.

 

MENTORING (PRIMARY AND SECONDARY)

Good news! The compulsory mentoring in the primary and secondary section of the academy is ongoing and has become much more result-oriented. This mentoring holds every Thursday between 3pm – 4pm. Parents are reminded of the closing time by 4:00pm for the said day. Kindly cooperate with us so that we can serve you better. We thank you for keying into our vision.

 

BUS SERVICE

 We thank our esteemed parents who make use of our bus shuttle. We appeal to all our parents whose children use the bus service to please always make payment before the resumption of any term so as to enable us have adequate preparation for a smooth take off of the term. Note that scholars who do not pay by resumption shall not be picked or returned. We are thanking you for your prompt response. To assist us serve you better, parents are encouraged to always counsel their wards on best behaviours during bus shuttle. Parents should always make ready their wards before the arrival of the bus as a minute extra spent in one house definitely distorts the routine of that particular bus.

We are appealing to parents who do not use the bus service to always pick up their wards immediately the school closes. We observed that some parents still pick up their ward(s) late after school hours. This is not healthy for our scholars.

We also use this medium to appeal to parents not to allow minors to drive their ward(s) to school.

 

 

LOST BUT FOUND ITEMS

This is to remind our parents and guardians that some misplaced items (cardigans, school ties, blazers, water bottles etc) are in the school store. Parents are advised to kindly visit the store for identification, confirmation and collection. Please note that evidence of ownership shall be required for collection. Labeling of ward’s item for easy identification is highly recommended.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EMBARKING ON JOURNEY

The Transit Connect Titanium Wagon in Race Red.

We appeal to parents who wish to travel with their child(ren) during this midterm break to endeavour to do so in time so as to allow scholars resume back to school on the 5th day of June, 2017 as  a day off school means a lot in the teaching/learning process. This is to enable us complete each term’s scheme of work with every scholar. We wish all our scholars and parents journey mercies as you embark on various trips. Thanking you for your understanding and co-operation.

 

 

CONFERENCING

Conferencing has over the years created an enabling platform for the school and parent to dialogue on issues affecting our scholars. This trend shall always be operational in the Academy. We appreciate our esteemed parents who have always responded to invitation for conferencing and appeal to others to always respond to this call. We wish to remind you that the duty of raising a child is a collaborative effort of both the parents and the school. To enable us achieve this great task, parents should always take conferencing as a platform to dialogue and partner with the school to bring out the best in the children. We advise our parents to take advantage of this great opportunity.

 

DISRUPTION OF CLASSES BY PARENTS

In line with our school’s policy, no parent is allowed into the class unless on special occasion as maybe permitted by the school authority. Parents are therefore advised to ensure scholars come to school with their lunch packs. Better still, lunch is being served in school which commenced this term. Please, help us to serve you better.

We wish to notify our esteemed parents to always sit in the school hall as they come for pick up of their ward(s) at closing hours. We assure you that our staff shall always be on the alert to attend to you.

 

 

 

 

BALLET CLUB

    

Ballet is an artistic dance form performed to music which requires precise and highly formalized set steps and gestures. In LWA, we strive for excellence in all that we are engaged in; that is why we had to change our ballet service provider, when we noticed they were not meeting our standards. The club’s performance has improved over the term. We believe that this will go a long way in promoting a better posture, sculpts and tone as well as develop the body of scholars. Other benefit includes; relieve stress, body flexibility and creative expression of the body. We encourage parents to allow their ward(s) to key into this great club of ours.

Ballet Club is fun and interesting, come join us!

 

GYMNASTIC CLUB

The Gymnastic club had commenced this term and it will be sustained. Scholars are already having fun in each session as this shall also keep our scholars fit and smart for the day to day activities. We encourage parents to avail their wards this great opportunity. You never can tell, your ward(s) could go global through this club.

 

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

      Our entrepreneurship club is geared towards equipping our scholars with skill to be able to fit into our present day economy. We do not only prepare them academically but also sharpen their skills to becoming entrepreneurs. In this club, scholars were taught to make some cleaning agents, coconut oil, coconut chips, zobo drink, smoothie and baking. Items made by the scholars were displayed for marketing in the school compound which some parents patronized them. We say a big thank you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

MOUNTAINEERING WEEK

    

In LWA we are poised to continuously expose our scholars to exceptional learning techniques. This week was wonderful as the primary pupils were taught the meaning of mountain/mountaineering and types. Pupils had worksheet on Mount Everest and Topical Andes Hotspot. Pupils were also engaged in molding of mountain models with clay and paper mache.

The apex of the week was a visit to ASO Radio, Katampe Hill where the pupils had a practical session of mountaineering. Pupils who performed exceptionally during the week’s activities were presented with certificates. 

 

FRENCH WEEK

    

This term also witnessed the celebration of French week. The week was exciting and educative as pupils throughout the week sang the Nigerian national anthem in French Language at the assembly ground. They also learnt the various Francophone countries and their capitals, presentation of the Nigerian and French flag in French Language, brief history of the Academy (mon è cole) in French language. Pupils had drama and poem presentations, all in French language. The Pre-school was not left out as the pupils presented the Alphabets in French languages. Pupils came to school on Friday, the D-day with various French delicacies.

 

SPELLING BEE

    

Our scholars were engaged in intra and inter class Spelling Bee competitions. This competition was to aid our scholars build their vocabulary. This event was educative, entertaining and above all, it was fun for our scholars. This competition has come to stay in our system.

 

CAREER DAY

     

Our scholars were taught the various types of professions and also the different subjects that would lead them to studying a certain course in the University, thus being trained in their various careers. We laud you; our esteemed parents for haven prepared them in the various dress codes that depict their choice of professions. We say thank you for always being there for us.

 

VOLUNTEERING

With regards to the economic situation and the fact that we have not increased our school fees, we are pleading with our dear parents to partner with us so as to enable us safeguard the future of our children. We wish to appeal to parents to volunteer in any way they can as was discussed and agreed at the Parents’ Forum. Such areas include; diesel for our generator plant (this cost us about N250,000.00 per term), fueling of the school buses (this cost us about N950,000.00 per term), all these are exclusive of maintenance charges, teaching (teacher in different subject areas), facilitating of training sessions (both for staff and scholars) etc.

We are also appealing to our dear Parents to donate water dispenser machines for us as two of the school’s water dispensing machines are bad. This makes supply of water to scholars cumbersome as our scholars cue up on just one machine. We are also in dire need of library books. We laud our esteemed parents who volunteered to donate textbook for our library in our last Parents’ Forum as we look forward to more volunteering.

We appreciate Mrs. Jaiye-Tikolo Adeyinka who supported the LWA family with N5,000.00 and Mrs. Okoko Margaret pledge of N50,000.00.

 

CLASS PARTY

    

We laud our dear parents for the support given to our scholars by providing them with items which they used in celebrating the class party at the end of last term. It was a wonderful cantata for our scholars. 

 

 

LWA TUCKSHOP/KITCHEN SERVICES

Good news! We wish to inform our esteemed parents that we have revamped our TUCKSHOP (School Canteen). The importance of school meal cannot be over emphasized as it is served fresh and hot. The management wishes to inform you of our unwavering effort to offer the best service to our parents and scholars. In this regard, a qualified and experienced chef has been engaged to man the canteen. Food services available include:

2017 SUMMARY TREAT WITH EXCELLENT ELEPHANT

This year’s Summer Treat is slated for the 31st July through the 25th of August, 2017. The treat shall feature Mathematics (Talking, Mental, Real Life Application and Word Problems Solving), English (Phonics, Communication and Confidence Building, News Casting, speech making, debate and Creative Writing), Science (Experiment for Pre-school and Primary School, All Science subjects (Secondary School) & ICT, Skill Acquisition/Vocation (Art and Craft, Music, Sports, Story time, Ballet and Salsa Dance, Cookery, Gymnastics Exercises). The treat shall also feature side attractions such as Community Service, Picnic and swimming, our culture- our pride, etc. This summer treat is well packaged for optimal explosion. Contact the school management and register your wards.

 

SPEECH ARTICULATION/ELOCUTION

As part of our holistic development of the child, we shall introduce speech articulation/elocution in the Academy. This programme is geared at enhancing the fluency in the manner in which our scholars speak English language. This shall help scholars communicate in English language using the right phonics and dictions. Parents are encouraged to register their wards for this innovation.  

 

DYNAMIC PROGRAMME

This programme has been fully initiated in LWA. Some scholars have been identified as challenged in Mathematics, English and Sciences through our checklist assessment. Strategies have been put in place to help the scholars concerned manage their areas of weakness and still maintain the same pace with their mates.

Conferencing of the parents concerned was held in January 2017, to enable us collaborate with the scholars’ parents for an excellent result. So far, a lot has been put in place this term and we believe that parents are seeing the result.

 

LWA has introduced an innovative way to help scholars with learning difficulties with the establishment of the Dynamic Unit (Part of Special Education Needs Unit). One of the aims of the department is to ensure that all our scholars can access the curriculum readily and work to their full potential. These pupils have been placed on an Individual Educational Plan (IEP); this is a teaching and learning plan that sets targets and actions for the scholars. This plan is different from, or in addition to other plans that are in place for the class. At LWA, we believe that it is very important for parents and scholars to be involved and aware of the targets set in the plan. The IEP allows us to plan for progression, monitor the effectiveness of teaching and the provision for additional support. The Dynamic pupils’ academic, social and behavioral performances for this second term speak for the unit and are evident in their second term report. Parents are to track our progression.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ENTREPRENEURSHIP PROGRAMMES/TRADE IN PRE-SCHOOL AND PRIMARY

     

As Nigeria and Nigerians resolve to shun corrupt practices and look inward to generate income from legal means particularly as revenue from the oil industry is unstable, LWA must not be left behind. We are taking a lead role in positioning scholars to face the reality of the Economic Recession and tackle it. Accordingly, five areas of trade are being introduced into our Pre-school and Primary curriculum. Subjects will be made more functional and result-oriented in the area of wealth creation. To make these happen, we seek parents’ cooperation and active collaboration.

 

 

ADMISSIONS

Admission for the 2017/2018 Academic Session is in progress. Enroll your child(ren) now into Crèche, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, Primary, Junior and Senior Secondary Schools. LWA is the school for your child. Please endeavour to tell your friends, relations and neighbours about us. We are “THE PERFECT LINK TO EXCELLENCE”.

SCHOOL FEES

We wish to remind you that in line with the CBN cashless policy, the Management of LWA once again wishes to inform you that the payment of fees can now be done through the following ways:

a)    Funds transfer through direct instant platform via individual banks

b)   Online payment via the school portal.

NOTE TO PARENTS

§  Parents should please help their ward(s) to reduce or discontinue cartoon watching when school is in session. Same applies to languages used at home because children learn from their environs, that is, what they see and hear. We have noticed some vulgar words used by some scholars among their peers and violent behaviours.

The NATIONAL COMMON ENTRANCE EXAMINATION organized by the federal government of Nigeria will be written on Saturday 8th April, 2017. Parents of JPL 5 pupils are to bring their children to the school premises by 7:30am on the said date. Our school bus will convey the pupils to the examination centre at GSS GWARINPA B.

 

EXTENDED CLASSES FOR JPL 5

The extra lesson introduced to prepare the JPL 5 pupils for external examination was a huge success. The lesson took off on Saturday 21st January, 2017. The days for the lessons were Thursdays 3:00pm to 4:00pm, Fridays 1:00pm to 2:30pm and Saturdays 9:00am to 1:00pm. The success of this program is in evident in the results of our pupils that sat for LWA entrance examination and other school’s entrance examination.

GOODNEWS: We are delighted to inform our esteemed parents that the extra lesson is a standing program that will be sustained from this term forward. This lesson includes the preparation of scholars into Loyola Jesuit Entrance Examination. We urge you to enroll all JPL 5 and 6 pupils every term.

 

 

LWA E-LEARNING INITIATIVE

https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTxXAdmm0xs3JtWvhiCLeeJn0uL1Hu8XqhhfsDRjF6Wdbfe-BAGDc6MefNQ

As the world is going totally digital, we at LWA wish to blaze the trail. We plan to employ a state of the art e-learning that meets world standard. To fully blend, we have to embrace it fully.

It is no news that some scholars do not have access to computers at home and sadly still; some parents lavish their kids with ipads and iphones which most of the times are abused by these kids.

We at LWA hereby propose an initiative that will give your child a sensored access to ICT and more importantly, yield great educational benefits. We therefore appeal to parents to be prepared as the current prices for purchase of educational tablet (for pupils) and laptop (for students) shall be communicated to them. This shall enhance the learning of our scholars.  Payments may be done installmentally. When full payment has been made, the tablet/laptop shall be given to your child as the rightful owner which he/she will use till graduation.

 

EDUCATIONAL VISITS

    

Keeping our scholars abreast of the trends in our community and society at large is part of the curriculum which we aim to achieve through educational visits to various sites of interest. This term, in the seventh week, the secondary section embarked on their educational visit to the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON), Abuja on the 16th day of March, 2017. The Primary section visited Lobic Motors Nig. Ltd on the 7th day of March, 2017 while our pupils in the Pre-School made their educational visit to Domino’s Pizza on the 6th day of March, 2017. These places of interest were carefully selected so as to expose our scholars to the world of entrepreneurship and career. 

 

COMMUNICATION BOOK

The use of the Communication Book as a link between the school and home is a standard we have maintained and will keep it up. Your response to our observations and issues raised will enable us offer you the very best. Kindly communicate using this medium any time a child is on medication and any official issues that concerns your child(ren) as none written communication shall not be honoured.  We plead once again that you endorse the relevant portion of the book on a daily basis. Feel free to indicate your area(s) of concern and useful suggestions.

We have noticed that some students have refused to avail their parents the Communication Book. In such a case, notify the school authority and demand for it. It is a school – parents’ communication book and is meant to enhance free flow of information and aid prompt interventions as the case may be.

 

UNIFORMS

LWA uniform is her identity! As part of our standards and quality assurance of the school, students/pupils are expected to come into school well groomed at all times. On the strength of this, we solicit that parents make conscious effort towards procuring at least two sets of uniforms for their child(ren) at the beginning of every academic year. We enjoin parents of returning scholars in particular to please check the uniforms of their child(ren)/ward(s) and kindly replace faded, tattered and torn uniforms. Undersized shorts, skirts, pinafores or trousers are not accepted. Note that children grow at a very fast rate and outgrow their wears too. Please, also note that there are slight changes in the prizes of these uniforms; this is because of the new order (purchase) made.  Furthermore, school shoes are covered black shoes with no heels and white canvas for sports days. The approved socks are plain white socks. (Available in the school store) Please, only pin earrings (small studded) are allowed for girls and well kept hair cut for the boys. 

 

OPEN DAY

Second term 2016/2017 academic session open day held on the 15th day of February, 2017. We laud our parents that availed themselves the opportunity and came in to assess the performances of their wards. That singular act showed the support from the home front as the children need to know that there is support and follow-up from the home in order “to keep them on their toes”. Remember, our doors are always open for audience with any of the management team members; the Executive Director, Principal, Head Teacher or Quality Assurance Officer. Feel free to book for a one-on-one, parent-pupil/student-school conference any time.

 

 

SCHOLARS & QUALITY ASSURANCE

The LWA bench mark still remains 70%. We assure our esteemed parents that all parameters are in place to enable us achieve the above bench mark. We enjoin every parent to keep partnering with us so as to enable us serve you better.

 

 

FRIDAY THEMES

With Friday themes, we vigorously pursue the exposure of our scholars to global issues and standards. This is geared towards making them fit to compete with their counterparts both within and outside the shores of Nigeria. Our Friday themes encourage research, critical thinking and self confidence as presentations are made by the writer which brings out the best in our scholars.

In a bid to step up our learning processes through our Friday Themes, this term’s themes were role played by our scholars. It was wonderful and captivating! This process of role play brings out hidden talents and skills embedded in our scholars. We wish to continually appeal to our esteemed parents not to relent in their efforts in ensuring the LWA’s vision of developing the total child. You are the best parents ever!

 

 

 

 

DISCIPLINE

We have sustained a more disciplined atmosphere so far this term, considering the fact that over the years, there has been significant improvement in scholars’ discipline. We attribute this to the support of most parents who in partnership with us, inculcate sound morals in the children. We sincerely encourage our esteemed parents to continue with this laudable practice at home as we promise to keep counseling and correcting them on unacceptable and unusual behahviour, thus producing better Nigerian children.

 

 

LATENESS TO SCHOOL

 We must commend the efforts of our parents on the slight improvement we have noticed in punctuality this term. Our expectations are high, so, we still appeal that more commitment be made, since this forms part of our character development training for LWA scholars. Resumption time is on or before 7:45am and all students are expected to be in school latest by 7:30am daily. We appeal to parents to please assist the school to entrench punctuality in our children. Remember, lateness to any programme is globally taken as indiscipline.

 

As a follow-up, the policy of locking the school gate after 8:00am or requesting defaulting parents to sign in their wards will fully be enforced. Please note that where this becomes a routine, the parent(s) in question shall be requested to meet with the school management team for conferencing.

 

 

SPORT DAYS

  Image result for pictures of sporting activities  

We wish to remind our esteemed parents of our sport days; Pre-school, Lower Primary and Secondary – every Wednesday while Upper Primary is every Thursday. Scholars are to appear in their sport wear on these days.

 

 

 

 

VOCATIONAL DEPARTMENT

       

Entrepreneurial skills cannot be over emphasized in our current day economy; this is why in LWA, the Vocation Department is poised to develop talents and skills embedded in our scholars. This is achieved by the use of waste materials, natural resources within the environs as well as the use of the computer. These materials and resources include; newspapers, raffia palm, clay and the likes. Our scholars are also taught how to bake cake, make natural fruit juice, liquid soap, izal, odour control, shampoo, body creams amongst others.

We appeal to our esteemed parents to encourage their wards to carry out whatsoever they have learnt in school at home. Parents should please provide them with necessary materials.

 

FROM THE HOD’S DESK – LANGUAGES/HUMANITIES

The Language and Humanities Department comprises: French, English studies, Lit-in-English, Hausa, Igbo, Social Studies, Civic Education, CRK, IRK, Government, Economics, Business Studies, and Accounting.

We have discovered with dismay that the attitude of our students towards our indigenous Languages (Hausa and Igbo) is not encouraging. We are therefore calling on our esteemed parents to encourage their children to also give priority to other Languages (Hausa, Igbo and French) besides English as these Languages are meant to help them realize their dreams of becoming global citizens, take their place in the international scene and as well give them identity as Nigerians.

We look forward to seeing a subject discrimination free academic session subsequently.

We are hoping and looking forward to having parents volunteering to teach Yoruba language as was discussed at the last parents’ forum.

 

TERM’S PROJECT/ASSIGNMENT

We solicit the support and cooperation of our esteemed Parents to minimally put their ward(s) through in carrying out all their assignment and projects. We applaud you, our esteemed parents as you help them with the various materials they need to carry out these projects and assignment. 

Third term’s projects have been given to scholars and we solicit your usual cooperation in assisting your ward(s) with materials they may need in carrying out these projects. Minimal adult guidance/assistance is allowed (where necessary). Deadline for submission of project is the 12th day of May, 2017.

 

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMME IN PRE-SCHOOL

Our after school programme for the Pre-school scholars is still running. Time for the programme is 1:30pm – 5:00pm on Mondays through Fridays. Special teachers are assigned to take care of pupils; educative programmes are designed for them, inclusive of cartoons. Those are played for them while they are always properly taken care of. An additional Ten Thousand Naira (N10,000.00) only shall be added to school fees for interested parents.

 

LWA SAPPHIRE CRÈCHE (4 MONTHS and ABOVE)

This has been on board fully since September, 2016. Our crèche is fully air-conditioned and well equipped for your baby’s safety and pleasure. We still have very few available spaces on a first come, first serve basis. Don’t miss the opportunity of this conducive and safe environment for your baby.

 

MENTORING (PRIMARY AND SECONDARY)

Good news! The compulsory mentoring in the primary and secondary section of the academy is ongoing and has become much more result-oriented. This mentoring holds every Thursday between 3pm – 4pm. Parents are reminded of the closing time by 4:00pm for the said day. Kindly cooperate with us so that we can serve you better. We thank you for keying into our vision.

 

BUS SERVICE

 We thank our esteemed parents who make use of our bus shuttle. We appeal to all our parents whose children use the bus service to please make payment before the resumption of any term so as to enable us have adequate preparation for a smooth take off of the term. Note that scholars who do not pay by resumption shall not be picked or returned. We are thanking you for your prompt response. To assist us serve you better, parents are encouraged to always counsel their wards on best behaviours during bus shuttle. Parents should always make ready their wards before the arrival of the bus as a minute extra spent in one house definitely distorts the routine of that particular bus.

We are appealing to parents who do not use the bus service to always pick up their wards immediately the school closes. We observed that some parents still pick up their ward(s) late after school hours. This is not healthy for our scholars.

We also use this medium to appeal to parents not to allow minors to drive their ward(s) to school.

 

 

LOST BUT FOUND ITEMS

This is to remind our parents and guardians that some misplaced items (cardigans, school ties, blazers, water bottles etc) are in the school store. Parents are advised to kindly visit the store for identification, confirmation and collection. Please note that evidence of ownership shall be required for collection. Labeling of ward’s item for easy identification is highly recommended.

 

EMBARKING ON JOURNEY

The Transit Connect Titanium Wagon in Race Red.

We appeal to parents who wish to travel with their child(ren) during this Easter festive period to endeavour to do so in time so as to allow scholars resume back to school on the 24th day of April, 2017 as  a day off school means a lot in the teaching/learning process. This is to enable us complete each term’s scheme of work with every scholar. We wish all our scholars and parents journey mercies as you embark on various trips. Thanking you for your understanding and co-operation.

 

 

CONFERENCING

Wow! Conferencing for 2nd term 2016/2017 academic session was really interactive and encouraging as we had more parents responding to invitation for conferencing. We appreciate our esteemed parents who responded to this invitation. We wish to remind you that the duty of raising a child is a collaborative effort of both the parents and the school. To enable us achieve this great task, parents should always take conferencing as a platform to dialogue and partner with the school to bring out the best in the children. We advise our parents to take advantage of this great opportunity.

DISRUPTION OF CLASSES BY PARENTS

In line with our school’s policy, no parent is allowed into the class unless on special occasion as maybe permitted by the school authority. Parents are therefore advised to ensure scholars come to school with their lunch packs. Better still, lunch will be served in school from third term. Please, help us to serve you better.

We wish to notify our esteemed parents to always sit in the school hall as they come for pick up of their ward(s) at closing hours. We assure you that our staff shall always be on the alert to attend to you.

 

BALLET CLUB

    

Ballet is an artistic dance form performed to music which requires precise and highly formalized set steps and gestures. In LWA, we strive for excellence in all that we are engaged in; that is why we had to change our ballet service provider, when we noticed they were not meeting our standards. The club’s performance has improved over the term. We believe that this will go a long way in promoting a better posture, sculpts and tone as well as develop the body of scholars. Other benefit includes; relieve stress, body flexibility and creative expression of the body. We encourage parents to allow their ward(s) to key into this great club of ours.

Ballet Club is fun and interesting, come join us!

 

GYMNASTIC CLUB

The Gymnastic club had commenced this term and it will be sustained. Scholars are already having fun in each session as this shall also keep our scholars fit and smart for the day to day activities. We encourage parents to avail their wards this great opportunity. You never can tell, your ward(s) could go global through this club.

 

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

      Our entrepreneurship club is geared towards equipping our scholars with skill to be able to fit into our present day economy. We do not only prepare them academically but also sharpen their skills to becoming entrepreneurs. In this club, scholars were taught to make some cleaning agents, coconut oil, coconut chips, zobo drink, smoothie and baking. Items made by the scholars were displayed for marketing in the school compound which some parents patronized them. We say a big thank you.

 

LWA OLD SCHOOL DAY

 

Our pupils were taught the life style of the older generation. The way they communicated, means of transportation, their types of food, their dress code, etc. This day was a boom! Our pupils were able to replicate the old school dress code as they came to school dressed with their different old school attire. It was fun.

 

CAREER DAY

     

Our scholars were taught the various types of professions and also the different subjects that would lead them to studying a certain course in the University, thus being trained in their various careers. We laud you; our esteemed parents for haven prepared them in the various dress codes that depict their choice of professions. We say thank you for always being there for us.

 

VOLUNTEERING

With regards to the economic situation and the fact that we have not increased our school fees, we are pleading with our dear parents to partner with us so as to enable us safeguard the future of our children. We wish to appeal to parents to volunteer in any way they can as was discussed and agreed at the parents’ forum. Such areas include; diesel for our generating plant (this cost us about N250,000.00 per term), fueling of the school buses (this cost us about N950,000.00 per term), all these are exclusive of maintenance charges, teaching (teacher in different subject areas), facilitating of training sessions (both for staff and scholars) etc.

We are also appealing to our dear Parents to donate water dispenser machines for us as two of the school’s water dispensing machines are bad. This makes supply of water to scholars cumbersome as our scholars cue up on just one machine. We are also in dire need of library books. We laud our esteemed parents who volunteered to donate textbook for our library in our last parents’ forum as we look forward to more volunteering.

 

LWA PRE-VACATION ACTIVITIES

The pre-vacation activities were awesome as pupils enjoyed with various indoor and outdoor activities. Pupils were also entertained with interesting and educative movies.

 

CLASS PARTY

    

We laud our dear parents for the support given to our scholars by providing them with items which they used in celebrating the class party at the end of the term. It was a wonderful cantata for our scholars. 

 

5TH ANNUAL INTER-HOUSE SPORTS

      

The 5th Annual Inter-House Sports competition held on the 11th day of February, 2017 at Glory Land Garden and Parks, Jabi, Abuja. It was worth the time we spent at the Park. Our parents really enjoyed themselves as they watched their wards set new records in sports. Parents were not left out of the competitions as we had both mummies and daddies take part in the 100 meters race. At the end of the competitions, Yellow House, the defending champions emerged the overall 1st position while Green House came 2nd, Blue House came 3rd and Red House came 4th. The outing was a huge success. We laud our esteemed parents for honouring our invitation and taking active part. Our shout out goes to the Chairman of the day, Col. B. S. Buhari who was ably represented by his wife, Hajia Miriam Buhari. We appreciate our staff and excellent scholars on the wonderful outing.

 

LWA TUCKSHOP/KITCHEN SERVICES

Good news! We wish to inform our esteemed parents that we have revamped our TUCKSHOP (School Canteen). The importance of school meal cannot be over emphasized as it is served fresh and hot. The management wishes to inform you of our unwavering effort to offer the best service to our parents and scholars. In this regard, a qualified and experienced chef has been engaged to man the canteen. Food services available include:

·      Assorted lunch menu

·      Optional snacks

·      Scotch eggs

·      Sausage rolls

·      Doughnuts

·      Meat pie

·      Fruit salad

·      Smoothies

·      Birthday cakes and assorted birthday snacks

Please note that orders for birthday cakes and snacks could be made on 72 hours notice. Payment of lunch should be made in advance to the LWA account in the following category:

·      Weekly payment  N3,000.00

·      Monthly payment  N12,000.00

·      Fruit/smoothies    N5,000 per scholar for a term

Please note that every child is expected to benefit from the school’s fruit and smoothies services three times a week. Fruit salad will be given two times while smoothies will be served once a week.

For the purchase of snacks, soft drinks, juice and other materials, parents are advised to effect payment in the account department for proper documentation. Adherence to the above arrangement will be highly appreciated and will assist us to serve you better.

 

DYNAMIC PROGRAMME

This programme has been fully initiated in LWA. Some scholars have been identified as challenged in Mathematics, English and Sciences through our checklist assessment. Strategies have been put in place to help the scholars concerned manage their areas of weakness and still maintain the same pace with their mates.

Conferencing of the parents concerned was held in January 2017, to enable us collaborate with the scholars’ parents for an excellent result. So far, a lot has been put in place this term and we believe that parents have started seeing the result.

 

LWA has introduced an innovative way to help scholars with learning difficulties with the establishment of the Dynamic Unit (Part of Special Education Needs Unit). One of the aims of the department is to ensure that all our scholars can access the curriculum readily and work to their full potential. The unit recorded a total number of 21 Pupils in this second term. These pupils have been placed on an Individual Educational Plan (IEP); this is a teaching and learning plan that sets targets and actions for the scholars. This plan is different from, or in addition to other plans that are in place for the class. At LWA, we believe that it is very important for parents and scholars to be involved and aware of the targets set in the plan. The IEP allows us to plan for progression, monitor the effectiveness of teaching and the provision for additional support. The Dynamic pupils’ academic, social and behavioral performances for this second term speak for the unit and are evident in their second term report. Parents are to track our progression.

 

SECOND TERM AWARDS/REINFORCEMENT

ENTREPRENEURSHIP PROGRAMMES/TRADE IN PRE-SCHOOL AND PRIMARY

    

As Nigeria and Nigerians resolve to shun corrupt practices and look inward to generate income from legal means particularly as revenue from the oil industry is unstable, LWA must not be left behind. We are taking a lead role in positioning scholars to face the reality of the Economic Recession and tackle it. Accordingly, five areas of trade are being introduced into our Pre-school and Primary curriculum. Subjects will be made more functional and result-oriented in the area of wealth creation. To make these happen, we seek parent’s cooperation and active collaboration.

 

THIRD TERM - 2016/2017 ACADEMIC SESSION

The third term 2016/2017 academic session begins on the 24th day of April, 2017. Parents are strongly advised to prepare their ward(s) for resumption on the said date as teaching and learning commence immediately on resumption. Remember, a day off school means a lot in the learning process of a child.

 

ADMISSIONS

Admission for the 2017/2018 Academic Session is in progress. Enroll your child(ren) now into Crèche, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, Primary, Junior and Senior Secondary Schools. LWA is the school for your child. Please endeavour to tell your friends, relations and neighbours about us. We are “THE PERFECT LINK TO EXCELLENCE”.

NOTE TO PARENTS

§  Parents should please help their ward(s) to reduce or discontinue cartoon watching when school is in session. Same applies to languages used at home because children learn from their environs, that is, what they see and hear. We have noticed some vulgar words used by some scholars among their peers and violent behaviours.

§  We also advise our esteemed parents to watch with keen interest the kind of friends their child(ren) keep and places they go to as kidnapping is on the increase.

§  We appeal to parents to adhere to the directives from our security men while dropping and picking the children so as not to block the entrance into the school and also to ease traffic.

§  In order to avoid misplacement of books, parents are encouraged to always monitor books brought home by their ward(s) and also ensure complete return of those books to school.

§  Parents are encouraged to always make effort to give their children food as they come to school or make proper arrangement for kitchen services.

§  Parents are please advised to get age appropriate story books, French, Hausa, Igbo and English dictionaries as well as Revised Standard Version Bible for their wards.

§  We strongly advise our esteemed parents to always create and spend time with their children as they need parental guide, company and warmth/friendship.

 

GRATITUDE

The second term 2016/2017 academic session was full of activities. We remain thankful to God for the ability given to us to accomplish our tasks for the term. We thank HIM for the life and blessings HE has bestowed on LWA family.

We appreciate our esteemed parents for the confidence reposed in us by choosing LWA.  We assure you of our excellent standards on educational best practices. We applaud our scholars as well as our staff for their hard work.

God bless us all.

ur Beloved Parents,

Compliments of the season! We are most grateful to Almighty God, the author and finisher of life for having brought us to the end of this term and more especially the end of the year, 2016.  We appreciate Him for His benevolence on the LWA family. 

To you our esteemed parents, we love and appreciate the loyalty you have reposed in us over the years. We assure you that we shall continue to serve you optimally each day for the betterment of our future leaders – our scholars. 

We are pleased with the unflinching commitment of our staff and their burning desire to deliver to the latter in the holistic building up of our scholars. 

To you our esteemed parents, we assure you that our desire to deliver on educational best practices remains ever green in our everyday activities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ACADEMICS

Image result for pictures of academic excellence

The 2016/2017 academic session which kick started this first term was vibrant with series of academic and co-curriculum activities. The performances of our scholars this term was extraordinary as this is evident in their performances both in their Continuous Assessments and Exams as well as co-curriculum programmes. These show commitment in our scholars, as they have demonstrated diligence in their studies. We implore parents not to relent in their efforts from the home front to encourage their ward(s) to study hard when they are at home. Our dear esteemed parent, be rest assured of our commitment to academic and moral excellence.

https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTxXAdmm0xs3JtWvhiCLeeJn0uL1Hu8XqhhfsDRjF6Wdbfe-BAGDc6MefNQ

As the world is going totally digital, we at LWA wish to blaze the trail. We plan to employ a state of the art e-learning that meets world standard. To fully blend, we have to embrace it fully.

It is no news that some scholars do not have access to computers at home and sadly still; some parents lavish their kids with ipads, and iphones which most of the times are abused by these kids.

We at LWA hereby propose an initiative that will give your child a sensored access to ICT and more importantly, yield great educational benefits. We therefore appeal to parents to be prepared as the current prices for purchase of educational tablet (for pupils) and laptop (for students) shall be communicated to them. This shall enhance the learning of our scholars.  Payments may be done install mentally. When full payment has been made, the tablet/laptop shall be given to your child as the rightful owner which he/she will use till graduation.

 

 

 

 

 

EDUCATIONAL VISITS

  

Keeping our scholars abreast of the trends in our community and society at large is part of the curriculum which we aim to achieve through educational visits to various sites of interest. This term, in the tenth week, our scholars paid a visit to educational and interesting places. These places included; Raw Material Research & Development Council, which was visited by the Secondary and Upper Primary. The NEXT Cash & Carry was visited by the Lower primary, while Shoprite was visited by our Pre-school pupils. By this act, we exposed our scholars to the various natural resources in Nigeria and how to effectively use them and also exposed them to professional entrepreneurial skills through buying and selling.

 

COMMUNICATION BOOK

The use of the Communication Book as a link between the school and home is a standard we have maintained and will keep it up. Your response to our observations and issues raised will enable us offer you the very best. Kindly communicate using this medium any time a child is on medication and any official issues that concerns your child(ren) as none written communication shall not be honoured.  We plead once again that you endorse the relevant portion of the book on a daily basis. Feel free to indicate your area(s) of concern and useful suggestions.

We have noticed that some students have refused to avail their parents the communication book. In such a case, notify the school authorities and demand for it. It is a school – parents’ communication book and is meant to enhance free flow of information and aid prompt interventions as the case may be.

 

UNIFORMS

LWA uniform is her identity! As part of our standards and quality assurance of the school, students/pupils are expected to come into school well groomed at all times. On the strength of this, we solicit that parents make conscious effort towards procuring at least two sets of uniforms for their child(ren) at the beginning of every academic year. We enjoin parents of returning scholars in particular to please check the uniforms of their child(ren)/ward(s) and kindly replace faded, tattered and torn uniforms. Undersized shorts, skirts, pinafores or trousers are not accepted. Parents are advised to always allow their wards to come to school with the school’s pullover during this hazy season. Note that children grow at a very fast rate and outgrow their wears too. Please, also note that there are slight changes in the prizes of these uniforms; this is because of the new order (purchase) made.  Furthermore, school shoes are covered black shoes with no heels and white canvas for sports days. The approved socks are plain white socks. (Available in the school store) Please, only pin earrings (small studded) are allowed for girls and well kept hair cut for the boys. 

 

PARENT’S FORUM WITH THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

This term’s parents’ forum was held on the 19th day of October, 2016, by 12:00noon. The venue was the school hall. We applaud our parents who turned up for the forum. The session was revealing and interactive. Thank you for your constructive criticisms, suggestions and accepting to volunteer. We shall continue with this development so as to provide a platform for interaction amidst our Executive Director, Management and you, our esteemed parents.

Here are some salient points discussed at the forum;

In view of the general economic recession the Academy resolved not to increase school fees, but noted that the increase in fuel, diesel vis-a-vis the poor light situation in Gwarainpa. And the PHCN charges etc has greatly increased the institution running cost, she therefore appealed for volunteers to donate drums of diesel, etc to ameliorate the situation.

We appreciate our esteemed parents who voluntarily offer to support the course. So far, only two (2) parents have made donations. The idea of forming a new PTA next time we meet was also considered at the forum.

 

OPEN DAY

First term 2016/2017 academic session open day held on the 19th day of October, 2016. We laud our parents that availed themselves the opportunity and came in to assess the performances of their wards. That singular act showed the support from the home front as the children need to know that there is support and follow-up from the home in order “to keep them on their toes”. Remember, our doors are always open for audience with any of the management team members; the Executive Director, Principal, Head Teacher or Quality Assurance Officer. Feel free to book for a one-on-one, parent-pupil/student-school conference any time.

 

SCHOLARS & QUALITY ASSURANCE

The LWA bench mark still remains 70%. We assure our esteemed parents that all parameters are in place to enable us achieve the above bench mark. We enjoin every parent to keep partnering with us so as to enable us serve you better.

 

 

 

 

 

 

FRIDAY THEMES

         

With Friday themes, we vigorously pursue the exposure of our scholars to global issues and standards. This is geared towards making them fit to compete with their counterparts both within and outside the shores of Nigeria. Our Friday theme encourages research, critical thinking, self confidence as presentations are made by the writer which brings out the best in our scholars.

In a bid to step up our learning processes through our Friday Themes, this term’s themes were role played by our scholars. It was wonderful and captivating! This process of role play brings out hidden talents and skills imbedded in our scholars. We wish to continually appeal to our esteemed parents not to relent in their efforts in ensuring the LWA’s vision of developing the total child. You are the best parents ever!

 

DISCIPLINE

We had a more disciplined atmosphere this term considering the fact that over the years, there has been significant improvement in scholar’s discipline. We attribute this to the support of most parents who in partnership with us, inculcate sound morals in the children. We sincerely encourage our esteemed parents to continue with this laudable practice at home as we promise to keep counseling and correcting them on unacceptable and unusual behahviour, thus producing better Nigerian children.

 

LATENESS TO SCHOOL

 We must commend the efforts of our parents on the slight improvement we have noticed in punctuality this term. Our expectations are high, so, we still appeal that more commitment be made, since this forms part of our character development training for LWA scholars. Resumption time is on or before 7:45am and all students are expected to be in school latest by 7:30am daily. We appeal to parents to please assist the school to entrench punctuality in our children. Remember, lateness to any programme is globally taken as indiscipline.

 

As a follow-up, the policy of locking the school gate after 8:00am or requesting defaulting parents to sign in their wards will fully be enforced. Please note that where this becomes a routine, the parent(s) in question shall be requested to meet with the school management team for conferencing.

 

SPORT DAYS

Image result for pictures of sporting activities

We wish to remind our esteemed parents of our sport days; Pre-school, Lower Primary and Secondary – every Wednesday while Upper Primary is every Thursday. Scholars are to appear in their sport wear on these days.

 

VOCATIONAL DEPARTMENT

https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTxIgmxw8FGzIb6Pgl9yHtkPd67EMAXQvPCyvbkYY4QSwBjfR8jaeXvsLm8 Entrepreneurial skills cannot be over emphasized in our current day economy; this is why in LWA, the vocational department is poised to develop talents and skills embedded in our scholars. This is achieved by the use of waste materials, natural resources within the environs as well as the use of the computer. These materials and resources include; newspapers, raffia palm, clay and the likes. Our scholars are also taught how to bake cake, make liquid soap, shampoo, body creams amongst others.

We appeal to our esteemed parents to encourage their wards to carry out whatsoever they have learnt in school at home. Parents should please provide them with necessary materials.

 

FROM THE HOD’S DESK – LANGUAGES/HUMANITIES

The Language and Humanities Department comprises: French, English studies, Lit-in-English, Hausa, Igbo, Social Studies, Civic Education, CRK, IRK, Government, Economics, Business Studies, and Accounting.

We have discovered with dismay that the attitude of our students towards our indigenous Languages (Hausa and Igbo) is not encouraging. We are therefore calling on our esteemed parents to encourage their children to also give priority to other Languages (Hausa, Igbo and French) besides English as these Languages are meant to help them realize their dreams of becoming global citizens, take their place in the international scene and as well give them identity as Nigerians.

We look forward to seeing a subject discrimination free academic session, come second term and the rest of the academic years.

We are hoping and looking forward to having parents volunteering to teach Yoruba language as was discussed at the last parents’ forum.

 

TERM’S PROJECT/ASSIGNMENT

We solicit the support and cooperation of our esteemed Parents to minimally put their ward(s) through in carrying out all their assignment and projects. We applaud you, our esteemed parents as you help them with the various materials they need to carry out these projects and assignment. 

 

Please, note that your ward(s) are coming home with their home-based projects which should be completed and returned back to school on the first day of resumption, being the 9th of January, 2017.

 

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMME IN PRE-SCHOOL

Our after school programme for the Pre-school scholars is still running. Time for the programme is 1:30pm – 5:00pm on Mondays through Fridays. Special teachers are assigned to take care of pupils; educative programmes are designed for them, inclusive of cartoons etc are played for them while they are always properly taken care of. An additional Ten Thousand Naira (N10,000.00) only shall be added to school fees for interested parents.

 

LWA SAPPHIRE CRÈCHE (4 MONTHS and ABOVE)

This has been on board fully since September, 2016. We still have very few available spaces on a first come, first serve basis. Don’t miss the opportunity of this conducive and safe environment for your baby.

 

MENTORING (PRIMARY AND SECONDARY)

Good news! The compulsory mentoring in the primary and secondary section of the academy is ongoing. This mentoring holds every Thursday between 3pm – 4pm. Parents are reminded of the closing time by 4:00pm for the said day. Kindly cooperate with us so that we can serve you better. We thank you for keying into our vision.

 

BUS SERVICE

https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRAm414wzQodNBhwJUkpwn_RkBMhwW2RCMF9PnwusXtT2rheC4T We thank our esteemed parents who make use of our bus shuttle. We appeal to all our parents whose children use the bus service to please make payment before second term’s resumption so as to enable us have adequate preparation for a smooth take off of second term. Note that scholars yet to make payment by resumption shall not be picked or returned. We are thanking you in anticipation for your prompt response. To assist us serve you better, parents are encouraged to always counsel their wards on best behaviours during bus shuttle. Parents should always make ready their wards before the arrival of the bus as a minute extra spent in one house definitely distorts the routing of that particular bus.

We are appealing to parents who do not use the bus service to always pick up their wards immediately the school closes. We observed some parents still pick up their ward(s) late after school hours. This is not healthy for our scholars.

We also use this medium to appeal to parents not to allow minors to drive their ward(s) to school.

 

LOST BUT FOUND ITEMS

This is to remind our parents and guardians that some misplaced items (cardigans, school ties, blazers, water bottles etc) are in the school store. Parents are advised to kindly visit the store for identification, confirmation and collection. Please note that evidence of ownership shall be required for collection. Labeling of ward’s item for easy identification is highly recommended.

 

EMBARKING ON JOURNEY

The Transit Connect Titanium Wagon in Race Red.

We appeal to parents who wish to travel with their child(ren) to always schedule such trips during holidays as a day off school means a lot in the teaching/learning process. This is to enable us complete each term’s scheme of work with every scholar. We wish all our scholars and parents journey mercies as you embark on various travel this festive period. Thanking you for your understanding and co-operation.

 

CONFERENCING

We wish to remind our esteemed parents that the duty of raising a child is a collaborative effort of both the parents and the school. To enable us achieve this great task, parents should always take conferencing as a platform to dialogue and partner with the school to bring out the best in the children. We thank all our parents who responded to invitation for conferencing this term.

 

DISRUPTION OF CLASSES BY PARENTS

In line with our school’s policy, no parent is allowed into the class unless on special permission by the school authority. Parents are therefore advised to ensure scholars come to school with their lunch packs. Please, help us to serve you better.

We wish to notify our esteemed parents to always sit in the school hall as they come for pick up of their ward(s) at closing hours. We assure you that our staff shall always be on the alert to attend to you.

 

BALLET CLUB

    

Ballet is an artistic dance form performed to music which requires precise and highly formalized set steps and gestures. In LWA, we strive for excellence in all that we are engaged in, that is why we had to change our ballet service provider, when we noticed they were not meeting our standards. The club performance has improved over the term. We believe that this will go a long way in promoting a better posture, sculpts and tone, develop the body of scholars. Other benefit includes; relieve stress, body flexibility and creative expression of the body. We encourage parents to allow their ward(s) to key into this great club of ours.

Ballet Club is fun and interesting, come join us!

 

GYMNASTIC CLUB

Preparations are on top gear to get a service provider for the school’s gymnastic club. It promises to be fun and entertaining. It shall keep our scholars fit for the day to day activities. Parents shall be fully briefed once arrangements have been concluded.

 

CHARITY WEEK

    

We register our great appreciation to our beloved parents who contributed immensely to our charity week activities. This singular act led us to visiting the orphanage home – Heritage Homes, here in Gwarinpa. We pray the good Lord to bless you and your entire family abundantly. The scholars were humbled and some were physically broken down, as they wept profusely at the sight of the abandoned children.

 

VOLUNTEERING

With regards to the economic situation and the fact that we have not increased our school fees, we are pleading with our dear parents to partner with us so as to enable us safeguard the future of children. We wish to appeal to parents to volunteer in any way they can as was discussed and agreed at the parents’ forum. Such areas include; diesel for our generating plant (this cost us about N250,000.00 per term), fueling of the school buses (this cost us about N950,000.00 per term), all these are exclusive of maintenance charges, teaching (teacher in different subject areas), facilitating of training sessions (both for staff and scholars) etc.

We are also appealing to our dear Parents to donate water dispenser machines for us as two of the school’s water dispensing machines are bad. This makes supply of water to scholars cumbersome as our scholars cue up on just one machine. We are also in dare need of library books. Thanking you as we look forward to your volunteering.

 

CHRISTMAS PARTY

      

Christmas is a season of good tidings, when love is shared with our neighbours and loved ones. In keeping with the tradition, on Monday the 5th day of December, 2016, we in LWA had commenced our Christmas fiesta/end of year party. Our scholars enjoyed with our mobile swimming pool which was mounted in our premises. Members of staff were not left out as it was a day marked out for us to have fun. Indeed it was fun filled on that day.

     

On Thursday, the 8th day of December, 2016, we witnessed the Christmas party proper. It was a great day as our parents trooped into LWA premises in large numbers, elegantly dressed in their colours of the season. Our scholars thrilled our parents with various presentations on class based. It was a wonderful day to behold. We laud our dear parents for having honoured our invitation. Your presence made our day!

 

TEA PARTY

There shall be a tea party in Jan, 2017 with the JPL 5 scholars, their parents and Management of LWA to discuss the way forward for their wards. A date will be communicated to those concerned. Thank you in anticipation as we look forward to your honouring our invitation.

 

LWA CATERING SERVICES

We have observed that over 90 percent of our scholars use food warmers that do not retain heat, thereby making children to eat cool food. 

In view of this, we are considering the likelihood of reopening our canteen again come second term 2016/2017 academic session. Kindly let us know if you would want your child(ren) to eat from the school canteen.

Secondly, we have noted that most children are ignorant of how to use cutlery sets and do not have the correct eating habits.

 

SECOND TERM RESUMPTION

Second term 2016/2017 academic session resumes on the 9th day of January, 2017. Parents are to please take note and ensure that their ward(s) are back to school on the above date. A day off school means missing out on studies for that day, remember, studies begin on the day of resumption.

All scholars are to turn in their projects to their respective teachers on resumption day.

 

SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS PROGRAMME (SEN)

SEN Department has been fully initiated in LWA. Some scholars has been identified as challenged in Mathematics, English and Sciences through our checklist assessment. Strategies has been put in place to help the scholar’s concerned manage their weakness and still maintain the same pace with their mates.

A conference of the parents concerned will be scheduled in January 2017, to enable us collaborate with the scholar’s parents for an excellent result. So far, a lot was put in this term and it is expected that parents have started seeing the result.

 

ENTREPRENEURSHIP PROGRAMMES/TRADE IN PRE-SCHOOL AND PRIMARY

As Nigeria and Nigerians resolve to shun corrupt practices and look inward to generate income from legal means particularly as revenue from the oil industry is unstable, LWA must not be left behind. We are taking a lead role in positioning scholars to face the reality of the Economic Recession and tackle it. Accordingly, five areas of trade are being introduced into our Pre-school and Primary curriculum. Subjects will be made more functional and result-oriented in the area of wealth creation. To make these happen, we seek parent’s cooperation and active collaboration.

NOTE TO PARENTS

§  Parents should please reduce or discontinue cartoon watching when school is in session. Same applies to languages used at home because children learn from their environs, that is, what they see and hear. We have noticed some vulgar words used by some scholars among their peers and violent behaviours.

§  We also advise our esteemed parents to watch with kin interest the kind of friends their child(ren) keep and places they go to as kidnapping is on the increase.

§  We appeal to parents to adhere to the directives from our security men while dropping and picking the children so as not to block the entrance into the school and also to ease traffic.

§  In order to avoid misplacement of books, parents are encouraged to always monitor books brought home by their ward(s) and also ensure complete return of those books to school.

§  Parents are encouraged to always make effort to give their children food as they come to school.

§  Parents are please advised to get age appropriate story books, French, Hausa, Igbo and English dictionaries as well as Revised Standard Version Bible for their wards.

PARENT’S FORUM WITH THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

This term’s parents’ forum was held on the 19th day of October, 2016, by 12:00noon. The venue was the school hall. We applaud our parents who turned up for the forum. The session was revealing and interactive. Thank you for your constructive criticisms, suggestions and accepting to volunteer. We shall continue with this development so as to provide a platform for interaction amidst our Executive Director, Management and you, our esteemed parents.

Here are some salient points discussed at the forum;

In view of the general economic recession the Academy resolved not to increase school fees, but noted that the increase in fuel, diesel vis-a-vis the poor light situation in Gwarainpa. And the PHCN charges etc has greatly increased the institution running cost, she therefore appealed for volunteers to donate drums of diesel, etc to ameliorate the situation.

We appreciate our esteemed parents who voluntarily offer to support the course. So far, only two (2) parents have made donations. The idea of forming a new PTA next time we meet was also considered at the forum.

 

OPEN DAY

First term 2016/2017 academic session open day held on the 19th day of October, 2016. We laud our parents that availed themselves the opportunity and came in to assess the performances of their wards. That singular act showed the support from the home front as the children need to know that there is support and follow-up from the home in order “to keep them on their toes”. Remember, our doors are always open for audience with any of the management team members; the Executive Director, Principal, Head Teacher or Quality Assurance Officer. Feel free to book for a one-on-one, parent-pupil/student-school conference any time.

 

SCHOLARS & QUALITY ASSURANCE

The LWA bench mark still remains 70%. We assure our esteemed parents that all parameters are in place to enable us achieve the above bench mark. We enjoin every parent to keep partnering with us so as to enable us serve you better.

 

 

 

 

 

 

FRIDAY THEMES

         

With Friday themes, we vigorously pursue the exposure of our scholars to global issues and standards. This is geared towards making them fit to compete with their counterparts both within and outside the shores of Nigeria. Our Friday theme encourages research, critical thinking, self confidence as presentations are made by the writer which brings out the best in our scholars.

In a bid to step up our learning processes through our Friday Themes, this term’s themes were role played by our scholars. It was wonderful and captivating! This process of role play brings out hidden talents and skills imbedded in our scholars. We wish to continually appeal to our esteemed parents not to relent in their efforts in ensuring the LWA’s vision of developing the total child. You are the best parents ever!

 

DISCIPLINE

We had a more disciplined atmosphere this term considering the fact that over the years, there has been significant improvement in scholar’s discipline. We attribute this to the support of most parents who in partnership with us, inculcate sound morals in the children. We sincerely encourage our esteemed parents to continue with this laudable practice at home as we promise to keep counseling and correcting them on unacceptable and unusual behahviour, thus producing better Nigerian children.

 

LATENESS TO SCHOOL

 We must commend the efforts of our parents on the slight improvement we have noticed in punctuality this term. Our expectations are high, so, we still appeal that more commitment be made, since this forms part of our character development training for LWA scholars. Resumption time is on or before 7:45am and all students are expected to be in school latest by 7:30am daily. We appeal to parents to please assist the school to entrench punctuality in our children. Remember, lateness to any programme is globally taken as indiscipline.

 

As a follow-up, the policy of locking the school gate after 8:00am or requesting defaulting parents to sign in their wards will fully be enforced. Please note that where this becomes a routine, the parent(s) in question shall be requested to meet with the school management team for conferencing.

 

SPORT DAYS

We wish to remind our esteemed parents of our sport days; Pre-school, Lower Primary and Secondary – every Wednesday while Upper Primary is every Thursday. Scholars are to appear in their sport wear on these days.

 

VOCATIONAL DEPARTMENT

https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTxIgmxw8FGzIb6Pgl9yHtkPd67EMAXQvPCyvbkYY4QSwBjfR8jaeXvsLm8 Entrepreneurial skills cannot be over emphasized in our current day economy; this is why in LWA, the vocational department is poised to develop talents and skills embedded in our scholars. This is achieved by the use of waste materials, natural resources within the environs as well as the use of the computer. These materials and resources include; newspapers, raffia palm, clay and the likes. Our scholars are also taught how to bake cake, make liquid soap, shampoo, body creams amongst others.

We appeal to our esteemed parents to encourage their wards to carry out whatsoever they have learnt in school at home. Parents should please provide them with necessary materials.

 

FROM THE HOD’S DESK – LANGUAGES/HUMANITIES

The Language and Humanities Department comprises: French, English studies, Lit-in-English, Hausa, Igbo, Social Studies, Civic Education, CRK, IRK, Government, Economics, Business Studies, and Accounting.

We have discovered with dismay that the attitude of our students towards our indigenous Languages (Hausa and Igbo) is not encouraging. We are therefore calling on our esteemed parents to encourage their children to also give priority to other Languages (Hausa, Igbo and French) besides English as these Languages are meant to help them realize their dreams of becoming global citizens, take their place in the international scene and as well give them identity as Nigerians.

We look forward to seeing a subject discrimination free academic session, come second term and the rest of the academic years.

We are hoping and looking forward to having parents volunteering to teach Yoruba language as was discussed at the last parents’ forum.

 

TERM’S PROJECT/ASSIGNMENT

We solicit the support and cooperation of our esteemed Parents to minimally put their ward(s) through in carrying out all their assignment and projects. We applaud you, our esteemed parents as you help them with the various materials they need to carry out these projects and assignment. 

 

Please, note that your ward(s) are coming home with their home-based projects which should be completed and returned back to school on the first day of resumption, being the 9th of January, 2017.

 

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMME IN PRE-SCHOOL

Our after school programme for the Pre-school scholars is still running. Time for the programme is 1:30pm – 5:00pm on Mondays through Fridays. Special teachers are assigned to take care of pupils; educative programmes are designed for them, inclusive of cartoons etc are played for them while they are always properly taken care of. An additional Ten Thousand Naira (N10,000.00) only shall be added to school fees for interested parents.

 

LWA SAPPHIRE CRÈCHE (4 MONTHS and ABOVE)

This has been on board fully since September, 2016. We still have very few available spaces on a first come, first serve basis. Don’t miss the opportunity of this conducive and safe environment for your baby.

 

MENTORING (PRIMARY AND SECONDARY)

Good news! The compulsory mentoring in the primary and secondary section of the academy is ongoing. This mentoring holds every Thursday between 3pm – 4pm. Parents are reminded of the closing time by 4:00pm for the said day. Kindly cooperate with us so that we can serve you better. We thank you for keying into our vision.

 

BUS SERVICE

https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRAm414wzQodNBhwJUkpwn_RkBMhwW2RCMF9PnwusXtT2rheC4T We thank our esteemed parents who make use of our bus shuttle. We appeal to all our parents whose children use the bus service to please make payment before second term’s resumption so as to enable us have adequate preparation for a smooth take off of second term. Note that scholars yet to make payment by resumption shall not be picked or returned. We are thanking you in anticipation for your prompt response. To assist us serve you better, parents are encouraged to always counsel their wards on best behaviours during bus shuttle. Parents should always make ready their wards before the arrival of the bus as a minute extra spent in one house definitely distorts the routing of that particular bus.

We are appealing to parents who do not use the bus service to always pick up their wards immediately the school closes. We observed some parents still pick up their ward(s) late after school hours. This is not healthy for our scholars.

We also use this medium to appeal to parents not to allow minors to drive their ward(s) to school.

 

LOST BUT FOUND ITEMS

This is to remind our parents and guardians that some misplaced items (cardigans, school ties, blazers, water bottles etc) are in the school store. Parents are advised to kindly visit the store for identification, confirmation and collection. Please note that evidence of ownership shall be required for collection. Labeling of ward’s item for easy identification is highly recommended.

 

EMBARKING ON JOURNEY

The Transit Connect Titanium Wagon in Race Red.

We appeal to parents who wish to travel with their child(ren) to always schedule such trips during holidays as a day off school means a lot in the teaching/learning process. This is to enable us complete each term’s scheme of work with every scholar. We wish all our scholars and parents journey mercies as you embark on various travel this festive period. Thanking you for your understanding and co-operation.

 

CONFERENCING

We wish to remind our esteemed parents that the duty of raising a child is a collaborative effort of both the parents and the school. To enable us achieve this great task, parents should always take conferencing as a platform to dialogue and partner with the school to bring out the best in the children. We thank all our parents who responded to invitation for conferencing this term.

 

DISRUPTION OF CLASSES BY PARENTS

In line with our school’s policy, no parent is allowed into the class unless on special permission by the school authority. Parents are therefore advised to ensure scholars come to school with their lunch packs. Please, help us to serve you better.

We wish to notify our esteemed parents to always sit in the school hall as they come for pick up of their ward(s) at closing hours. We assure you that our staff shall always be on the alert to attend to you.

 

BALLET CLUB

    

Ballet is an artistic dance form performed to music which requires precise and highly formalized set steps and gestures. In LWA, we strive for excellence in all that we are engaged in, that is why we had to change our ballet service provider, when we noticed they were not meeting our standards. The club performance has improved over the term. We believe that this will go a long way in promoting a better posture, sculpts and tone, develop the body of scholars. Other benefit includes; relieve stress, body flexibility and creative expression of the body. We encourage parents to allow their ward(s) to key into this great club of ours.

Ballet Club is fun and interesting, come join us!

 

GYMNASTIC CLUB

Preparations are on top gear to get a service provider for the school’s gymnastic club. It promises to be fun and entertaining. It shall keep our scholars fit for the day to day activities. Parents shall be fully briefed once arrangements have been concluded.

 

CHARITY WEEK

    

We register our great appreciation to our beloved parents who contributed immensely to our charity week activities. This singular act led us to visiting the orphanage home – Heritage Homes, here in Gwarinpa. We pray the good Lord to bless you and your entire family abundantly. The scholars were humbled and some were physically broken down, as they wept profusely at the sight of the abandoned children.

 

VOLUNTEERING

With regards to the economic situation and the fact that we have not increased our school fees, we are pleading with our dear parents to partner with us so as to enable us safeguard the future of children. We wish to appeal to parents to volunteer in any way they can as was discussed and agreed at the parents’ forum. Such areas include; diesel for our generating plant (this cost us about N250,000.00 per term), fueling of the school buses (this cost us about N950,000.00 per term), all these are exclusive of maintenance charges, teaching (teacher in different subject areas), facilitating of training sessions (both for staff and scholars) etc.

We are also appealing to our dear Parents to donate water dispenser machines for us as two of the school’s water dispensing machines are bad. This makes supply of water to scholars cumbersome as our scholars cue up on just one machine. We are also in dare need of library books. Thanking you as we look forward to your volunteering.

 

CHRISTMAS PARTY

      

Christmas is a season of good tidings, when love is shared with our neighbours and loved ones. In keeping with the tradition, on Monday the 5th day of December, 2016, we in LWA had commenced our Christmas fiesta/end of year party. Our scholars enjoyed with our mobile swimming pool which was mounted in our premises. Members of staff were not left out as it was a day marked out for us to have fun. Indeed it was fun filled on that day.

     

On Thursday, the 8th day of December, 2016, we witnessed the Christmas party proper. It was a great day as our parents trooped into LWA premises in large numbers, elegantly dressed in their colours of the season. Our scholars thrilled our parents with various presentations on class based. It was a wonderful day to behold. We laud our dear parents for having honoured our invitation. Your presence made our day!

 

TEA PARTY

There shall be a tea party in Jan, 2017 with the JPL 5 scholars, their parents and Management of LWA to discuss the way forward for their wards. A date will be communicated to those concerned. Thank you in anticipation as we look forward to your honouring our invitation.

 

LWA CATERING SERVICES

We have observed that over 90 percent of our scholars use food warmers that do not retain heat, thereby making children to eat cool food. 

In view of this, we are considering the likelihood of reopening our canteen again come second term 2016/2017 academic session. Kindly let us know if you would want your child(ren) to eat from the school canteen.

Secondly, we have noted that most children are ignorant of how to use cutlery sets and do not have the correct eating habits.

 

SECOND TERM RESUMPTION

Second term 2016/2017 academic session resumes on the 9th day of January, 2017. Parents are to please take note and ensure that their ward(s) are back to school on the above date. A day off school means missing out on studies for that day, remember, studies begin on the day of resumption.

All scholars are to turn in their projects to their respective teachers on resumption day.

 

SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS PROGRAMME (SEN)

SEN Department has been fully initiated in LWA. Some scholars has been identified as challenged in Mathematics, English and Sciences through our checklist assessment. Strategies has been put in place to help the scholar’s concerned manage their weakness and still maintain the same pace with their mates.

A conference of the parents concerned will be scheduled in January 2017, to enable us collaborate with the scholar’s parents for an excellent result. So far, a lot was put in this term and it is expected that parents have started seeing the result.

 

ENTREPRENEURSHIP PROGRAMMES/TRADE IN PRE-SCHOOL AND PRIMARY

As Nigeria and Nigerians resolve to shun corrupt practices and look inward to generate income from legal means particularly as revenue from the oil industry is unstable, LWA must not be left behind. We are taking a lead role in positioning scholars to face the reality of the Economic Recession and tackle it. Accordingly, five areas of trade are being introduced into our Pre-school and Primary curriculum. Subjects will be made more functional and result-oriented in the area of wealth creation. To make these happen, we seek parent’s cooperation and active collaboration.

NOTE TO PARENTS

§  Parents should please reduce or discontinue cartoon watching when school is in session. Same applies to languages used at home because children learn from their environs, that is, what they see and hear. We have noticed some vulgar words used by some scholars among their peers and violent behaviours.

§  We also advise our esteemed parents to watch with kin interest the kind of friends their child(ren) keep and places they go to as kidnapping is on the increase.

§  We appeal to parents to adhere to the directives from our security men while dropping and picking the children so as not to block the entrance into the school and also to ease traffic.

§  In order to avoid misplacement of books, parents are encouraged to always monitor books brought home by their ward(s) and also ensure complete return of those books to school.

§  Parents are encouraged to always make effort to give their children food as they come to school.

§  Parents are please advised to get age appropriate story books, French, Hausa, Igbo and English dictionaries as well as Revised Standard Version Bible for their wards.
