EMERALD HIGH SCHOOL, DAY

We encourage all of our students to become independent and creative thinkers. We take pride in the diversity of our school and provide a climate of respect and acceptance for everyone and offer a safe and secure environment in which every child is nurtured to achieve beyond their potential.

The children of Emerald Day High School are a diversely talented and unique group of individuals, who are both a source of inspiration and motivation for us all.

There is no gainsaying that a holistic and child centred approach leads to all decisions, developments and strategic planning actions for the well-being and success of all students. I especially want all of our students to aspire to be the best that they possibly can and I am committed to the school and its ethos.

Whilst preparing our students for an ever growing and challenging world, at Emerald Day High School we place our Core values at the core of all that we do for our students, parents, teachers and staff. Delivering a blend of the National Curriculum for British and the Nigeria Curriculum, our school focuses on 21st Century skills, innovation and entrepreneurship.

We are very passionate about providing the best possible learning opportunities and experiences for all children irrespective of their strengths, challenges or needs. We continually strive to provide an inclusive, enabling and safe environment which empowers all our children to try their best and achieve beyond expectations. Our teachers’ personalised approach to learning embraces and responds to diversity in individual learning styles and provides children with the skills, competence and attitudes for their future.

Our school offers enrichment through various activities and events during school and through extra-curricular activities. We provide a wide range of opportunities in sports, art, cultural and performing arts programme beyond the school day as well as access to international and local field trips, leadership trainings and participate in competitions and local events.

The well-being of our community- students, parents and staff is paramount and we place great emphasis on building relationships with high quality personal and social skills. Happy, safe and secure environment at Emerald Day High School directly impacts positively upon attitudes to learning and leading to highest standards of achievement.

I look forward to working with you for the benefit of your children. The parent-school partnership is something I firmly endorse and aim that, together; we can provide the very best educational experience for all our students. A partnership doesn’t mean that we will always be in agreement, instead, we will always focus on what we feel is most beneficial, educationally, for the children of this school. I want the very best for all of you, your families and your children. I look forward to the challenges and achievements that we will share together with excitement.

Together I am confident that The Emerald Day High School will continue to grow in spirit and I am excited about being part of that future and the educational and personal journey of every member of The Emerald Day High School community.

I therefore extend an invite to you for a tour round our school community in order to explore and appreciate the splendour, alluring ambiance and academically charged excellent outlook as we move ahead.

Our Curriculum

The school runs a well-blended Curriculum (Nigeria and British Curricular). Right from year 7, students are prepared to write the Checkpoint examination organized by Cambridge International Examinations(CIE) , Junior  School National Examination Council,(  NECO) and Ogun  State examinations, Basic  Education Certificate Examination( BECE). Also, Year 8 students go on an exchange / field trip (FRENCH) while year 10 students have their curriculum tailored towards writing the IGCSE, WAEC, and NECO examinations. Provisions are made for students who require SAT, TOEFL and JAMB.

High School Subjects

The curriculum at the Junior Secondary School level is aimed at giving the students the knowledge and skills preparatory to the selection of subjects for career choices at the senior secondary school level. These subjects are:

At the end of the Junior School, students will write both the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) i.e. the JSCE and the Check Point British Examination.

The curriculum at the Senior Secondary School level is aimed at giving the students the knowledge and skills preparatory to choosing a good course of study at the University level based on their competence. The subjects are:

At the end of the Senior School, students will write both the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) and the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examination.

Special Programmes

The students overall development is paramount and this is represented in the core values of the school. To raise a total child, we place priority on emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual well-being of our students.

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 as students acquire leadership skills. It serves as a multidisciplinary experience for students and attendance is one of the conditions for becoming a Prefect in the school.

French Immersion Programme

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.

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.

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.
