Special Programmes

Leadership Training

In addition to the leadership workshops usually organized in the school, students also attend the Sea School Programme in Year 11. The Sea School Programme is a two weeks intensive Leadership Programme. The benefits from the programme are enormous and attendance is one of the conditions for becoming a Prefect in the school.

Spiritual Development

As a Christian School we entrust all our activities to God. We place emphasis on the Pentecostal worship and Catholic Mass celebration. The Principal of the Junior Secondary School is the co-ordinator of the Pentecostal worship and the coordinator for the Catholic worship is the Director. Pentecostal worship is presided over by our staff and sometimes by parents who have the calling, on invitation, while the Catholic Mass is conducted every Sunday by a priest from Mowe Parish, our Parish. The Catholic students have the opportunity of receiving first Holy Communion and the sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation during their stay in the school.

Learning Support, Counselling and University Placement Unit

The school provides counselling and learning support services to students with academic challenges. The Learning support is done thrice a week and a progress report provided fortnightly. Individual and group counselling is done sometimes with the help of educative/informative CDs relevant to the students age.. Career information and guidance is provided to students in Year 9 by administering psychological tests such as the Vocational Interest Inventory (VII) and Motivation for Occupational Preference (MOP) before selecting the subjects to be done at the senior school. We also have Adolescence Personal Data Inventory (APDI) for developmental changes and Study Habit Inventory (SHI) to enhance the learning support programme. The School provides University placement and support services while educational field trips and Students Exchange Programmes are also organised to broaden the Students horizon.

Community Development Programme

The school is poised to impart positively on its immediate community through award of scholarships and other Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities. As a matter of policy and in line with our mission statement, every child is expected to engage in community service at least once a session. As part of our CSR efforts, a Public Primary school in the community has been adopted for regular assistance and after discussing with the Head of the Primary School, the challenges faced by the School were identified as follows: • Lack of fence • Poor state of learning facilities • Inadequate classroom furniture • Shortage of teachers • Dilapidated buildings We have thus far been able to donate furniture and books to the school and efforts are continuing to assist in other areas. The parents have been very helpful in this regard.
