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”.

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 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.

§  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.
