AUGUST 2020 NEWSLETTER

Welcome to the August episode of our Newsletter.

With a deep sense of joy, appreciation to our ever supportive parents and a great sense of accomplishment, we herald the end of a first of its kind learning period. Twenty weeks of Remote Learning, in between there were moments of uncertainties; government directives awaited were delayed at many points, opinions varied severally. Regardless, having you as an ally made all the difference; we pulled through this exceptional phase and here we are today, celebrating the end of an unusual term.  

 
Ride the Waves- Special Parent Education Program
To offer our esteemed parents more insights on  available  options for converting redundant assets into cash and dealing with layoffs, a special Parent Engagement Program was put in place. Our guests, Mr. Dipo Maiye (Partner Oil, Gas and Power at Anderson Tax)
.
and Mr. Adeyemi Adegboye (Head of Operations at ARM Investment Managers Limited) highlighted various options to lessen the impacts of the pandemic on personal and family finance.
 
 

Congratulations our Pace setters

We could not contain our joy as we presented to the larger word our Pace Setters, Year 6 Class of 2020. To commemorate the end of their Primary School journey, a number of activities were lined up to have them fully equipped for tasks ahead.

Year 6 Leadership Training:

“What makes me a Leader” was the theme of the conversation led by Mr. Dayo Orolu, the Head of Business Development at Siemens Nigeria and a Leader in different fields. Drawing an analogy from the Paw Patrol and football teams, Mr. Orolu emphasized the need for team work, responsibility and humility in leadership.

 

Graduation Prayer: the spiritual and emotional well being of our pupils is as important to us as their academic and intellectual development.
The Graduation prayer was a solemn Assembly to make positive declarations on our Pacesetters. Pastor Timothy Aderemi of the Elevation Church took time to declare God’s blessings on our graduating pupils. We are confident that they are exiting Primary School fully geared for impacts.
The grand Finale was the Virtual Graduation held on August 20th with the amazing Award Winning actress; Kate Henshaw as the Special Guest. It was all joy as our pacesetters pledged to always be great Ambassadors of Howbury School.  In her words, the Special Guest reiterated the importance of humility, integrity, discipline, hard work to life’s success. We congratulate our Pacesetters and particularly our Valedictorian; Ezekiel Famofo for his uncommon achievements.
 
 

Tribute Assembly: 
In celebrating the Success of others, pupils cultivate healthy emotions and appraise self for better output. The Virtual Assembly recently held on August 26th was a time to recognize and celebrate our outstanding performers for the Remote Learning period. Congratulations Champions!

Class Party:

To officially end this exceptional term, a first of its kind Virtual Class Party was held on August 27th. It was a time of fun and unwinding for the pupils as they had dance sessions, games and lots of fun activities. Pupils particularly shared great times they have had in their present classes and lessons learnt for moving to the next classes.

Staff Party:
 

In celebrating the successful end of session, an exceptional one at that and aligning with the words of Orison Swett Marden: "Work, love, and play are the great balance wheels of man's being.", the  Howbury team gathered virtually for a time of unwinding, fun and play. 

 

Howbury Secondary School

To offer further insights on the Global High Impact Secondary School Program (GHISS), a Question and Answer Session was held on Saturday, August 29th. The School Manager, Dr. Justina Adeosun took time to clarify the concept of Phenomenal learning which is a key element of the GHISS.
