4TH AUGUST, 2023
We appreciate Almighty God for being merciful and for seeing us through the third term.
We are grateful and thankful to our esteem parent/guardians for their usual commitment and unwavering support.
Our profound gratitude to the Oba of Lagos His Royal Highness Oba Akiolu for his fatherly role and the peaceful co-existence between the College and the community.
I also appreciate the School Based Management Committee (SBMC), under the able leadership of Engr. Jani Ibrahim, the Parent/Teachers Association (PTA) and the Staff for their cooperation.
We successfully carried out our mandate of teaching and learning. Lessons were well supervised and monitored. Extra lessons were also taught and this helped in covering the work planned and the syllabus.
The third term examination was successfully carried out. JAMB, WASCE and BECE were written and NECO is ongoing. JAMB and BECE examination results have been released and our students have performed excellently in both examinations.
THE TONE OF DISCIPLINE IN THE COLLEGE

Please counsel your child/ward to behave well in school
We also advice parents/guardians to encourage their children/wards to always report cases of ill-treatment by staff/students to the School Authority
Parents are advised to get acquainted with the guidelines on Day Studentship. A copy of the guidelines is at the PTA office. Day Students must always come to school with the approved College Uniforms. Also ensure that your child/ward is in School on time (8:00am latest). They must also present their payment receipt on the Monday of resumption before they will be allowed to enter the compound.

NAMES ON UNIFORM
Our boys are in the habit of carelessly abandoning their uniforms and more often picking other student’s uniforms thereby depriving victims of what to wear.
In order to check this ugly situation, it is now mandatory for every student to sew or inscribe name on the pockets of his uniform. Other personal items should equally be properly identified.

It is our prayer that your children/wards grow in strength, knowledge and wisdom and become great assets to you and our nation.
