Resilience is accepting your new reality and pledging to keep at it. One of our mantra at Howbury School is that we realize that success is the result of hard work, determination and perseverance, this mindset has propelled our constant push for the optimum. Teaching virtually has presented loads of opportunities for us to project our tech advantage for our pupils’ learning.

Fathers’ Day

Dear Daddy,

You have always been my hero

Thank you for going hungry that I will eat

Thank you for providing all that I need

Even when you do not have

You go the extra miles

Just to see me smile

I love you Daddy
And I promise to always make you proud.



Happy Fathers’ Day to All Howbury Fathers, thank you for all you do!


Book Reading 

It was a thrill as Year 1-3 pupils had Jude Idada; Screenwriter, Author, Director and winner Nigerian Prize for literature, 2019 read a chapter of his Boom Boom during the Welcome Assembly for Phase 3 of the Remote Learning. The story which is centered on the struggles of a child born with

the SS genotype had all pupils listen with rapt attention as they anticipated the crux of the story.
