- PROJECT WORK: Find attached to this newsletter project work for your child/ward. Project work is meant to keep the children focused and for parents to spend quality time with their children. So, parents should endeavor to see that their children do their projects knowing that the scores are part of their overall assessment.
- 10. DISCIPLINE:
We implore our parents to speak to their children to put up good behavior at all times. The school still has zero tolerance to all forms of indiscipline.
Some of our parents inadvertently and indirectly engineer their children to disobey school rules and regulations through what they say about the school in the presence of their children. Some make derogatory remarks about school policies, staff or management in the presence of their children. This attitude emboldens such students to disobey school rules and regulations and increase obstinacy in the students. Such negative remarks do not help the children at all. Our efforts in the upbringing of these students in the nurture and admonition of the Lord should be complementary.
- STUDENTS UNIFORM:
There is need to make new uniforms for those that have outgrown theirs. Note that no other types of clothes apart from the school uniforms are allowed in the school. Students who have reshaped their uniforms should loosen them or buy new sets to avoid confiscation. Homemade uniforms are not accepted. Defaulters will be sanctioned.
- CONTINENTAL TABLE:
Continental table is a separate meal (table) provided for mostly International students who would not be able to feed on our local dishes. However, indigenous students with feeding difficulties may be allowed to partake in it. The cost for this separate arrangement is sixty thousand naira (N60,000.00) for a term.
- 13. WELFARE LINES FOR WEEK END CALLS
To checkmate indiscriminate calls among students, staff and parents in LOGISS, the Management has provided phone numbers for weekend calls which are restricted only to the hostel officers and their students. Therefore, parents are free to talk with their child(ren)/ward(s) during the week ends with the underlisted numbers:
