UPPER COLLEGE HALF TERM NEWSLETTER
16 October, 2023
We have come to the end of the first half of the first term of the 2023/2024 academic session. We give all praise and glory to God. Also, we thank you immensely for supporting us and cooperating with us. Your timely suggestions, advice and feedback have been helpful to us and have enabled us to see things differently and act differently in some cases. This to a large extent has helped to enhance our efficiency and productivity.
As we begin the new term, we want you to kindly note the following;
HALF TERM BREAK
We shall be having our half term break from Monday, 23rd October to Friday, 27th October, 2023. The school will reopen on Monday, 30th October. 2023.
HALF TERM ASSIGNMENT
Your children shall be given assignments for the half term break. Please kindly ensure that the assignments are properly done and submitted immediately school resumes for the second half of the term.
NATIONAL DAY CELEBRATION
We celebrated our national day on Friday, 29th September, 2023. The students and teachers came to school dressed in different cultural attires. The day was so colourful and the presentation of the students was exquisite. I will like to use this medium to appreciate the parents who prepared their local dishes and brought them to school for everyone to have a taste. God bless you all.
The students in the college will be going on an excursion on Wednesday, 25th October, 2023. The children will be visiting interesting and educative places. Kindly ensure that your child(ren) is/are part of these educational trips.
This booster class is designed to give extra lessons to our students at no cost. It is used to reinforce whatever the teachers have taught in the class. It takes place after school between 2:40pm and 3:30pm from Monday to Friday. It has started already. Kindly encourage your children to attend the booster class.
INTERNATIONAL GENERAL CERTIFICATE OF SECONDARY EDUCATION EXAMINATION (I.G.C.S.E)
Our Year 12 students have started the I.G.C.S.E examination. Please remember them in your prayers. The Lord will crown their efforts with outstanding success in Jesus’ name.

The remaining events for the term are as follows:
Open Day: Friday, 20th October, 2023.

Our boarding school is well equipped to accommodate our students and the structured life they live in the hostel keep them away from distractions and make them concentrate on their studies. In other to rigorously prepare the Year 12 students for the forthcoming external examinations, we shall be glad and grateful if they can be allowed to come to the boarding school. This will make it easy for us to organize morning classes (7:00am-8:10am) and afternoon classes (2:45pm-4:15pm) for them. This will be in addition to the preparatory classes they have in the evening and in the morning.
The issue of proper and decent dressing cannot be over-emphasized. The students of New Hall International School are known for dressing properly and decently. We cannot rescind this culture. Therefore, we sincerely implore you to ensure that your children are all properly dressed to school on a daily basis. Both boys and girls are expected to wear a pair of well polished black shoes with white socks. On Friday, we expect them to put on their sportswear and to wear a pair of pure white canvas with white socks. The boys are expected to cut their hair low while the girls are expected to plait the hairstyle for the week. Their fingernails should also be cut low.
Discipline, as we know, is one of the major recipes of success. Our children need to be reminded time and time again about the essence of discipline. Discipline provides a good environment for effective teaching and learning to take place. Let us therefore inculcate the virtue of good discipline in them.
In conclusion, we appreciate you for choosing New Hall International School for your children. We will like to reiterate our commitment to deliver quality service to you and to bring out the best in your children.
Thank you and God bless you all.
