Vice Principal Academics
We offer a holistic formation of the child ranging from spiritual, academic, social, moral and cultural background.
The academic year begins in September and ends in July. We have qualified teachers cutting across all the subjects. And they have been teaching with all vigor. The students have equally been performing exceptionally well.
The school has an integral program of spiritual formation. The day begins with morning prayers and later in evening and night prayers. The students attend masses on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. It is equally mandatory for all our students to join pious societies in the school.
The moral upbringing of our students is also our top priority. It makes no sense to be academically sound without a good moral life. The students are therefore formed morally. We organize on a regular basis, workshops, symposia and talks/lecture for the benefit of our students.
Social Life: We encourage our students to take part in sporting activities like football, volleyball, handball, badminton, athletics, table tennis etc. this is instrumental to their building a healthy personality. Others include: drama presentation, variety nights and manual labour. They are equally provided the opportunity of listening and watching news on weekend bases as the school has made provision for standard television and monthly subscription is made for student’s interest only.
Culture: Since culture and tradition are intrinsic parts of the human being, we encourage our students to open themselves to learning their traditional and cultural inheritance so that they can better appreciate them and make a clear divide between that and the Christian way of life.
