We don’t employ NCE not even for the primary level. We engage in extracurricular activities,such as sports,life skills and mentoring skills which is our selling point”.

“Regarding the life skill, we have various sessions which we categorized into groups.We have shopping where we teach or allow the children learn how to do shopping by taking them out to different shopping malls and other popular markets around, just to instill into them, the concept of price bargaining when shopping. We also have another one that has to do with the practical aspect of engineering, we have buses within the premises where we train them on minor learnings like changing of tyres, this is a skill that they also leverage in their own personal life and also use it to help their parents when the need arises.There also the money management session,where we tutor them on financial management on how they manage their finances.

This is because the academic powerhouse walks through every step of a student’s academic journey by ensuring that a well defined path is clearly chosen according to laid down given by the Ministry of Education in choosing a career. They do this in conjunction with the student, parents and the school Counselor”.

If a stranger is sent to pick up a child, we also carry out an investigation to ascertain if parents are aware”.
