Victoria Praise Pearls Hall
…A Montessori Caring and Creative world
NEWSLETTER FOR END OF 2018/2019 SESSION (18th July, 2019)
To God is the glory for a beautiful start and ending. Yes, there were challenges at intervals; God helped us through them all. Please find the summary of all our achievements this term. Without blowing our trumpets, we strived to ensure that our vision and mission speak in all our activities.
- Children’s Day
This year’s children’s day was mini amusement park for the children. The school flung her door open to everyone who cared to catch the fun with us. There were stands for snacks, popcorn, ice cream, game, bouncy castle, swimming, aerobic dance and many more. We were glad we could make the children happy.
- Open day child/conference
The open day and child conference did not come up on the date it was slated on the term calendar; this was because of the public holiday interruption. The conference recorded encouraging number of parents, though more of mothers as always. The forum was an avenue to find solution to both academic and moral challenges pointed out by Parents and the teachers. The school management takes advantage of this news letter to plead with parent to please create space in their time schedule for CHILD CONFERENCE. This means a lot to us, as it helps TEAM VPPS to work on our lapses in order to serve you better.
- Parents Health Care hour
Our intention this term was to join the world in celebration of mothers: So we thought we should show our Care for VPPS mothers by bringing in health team to carry out a detailed medical check on various health issues that by early intervention could prevent an irreparable health problem. At the point of initiation, we felt that it would not be nice not to invite Fathers. Although our invitation was turned down by many Parents we still went ahead with our good intentions and we did not mind footing the loss. The day was fulfilling for the wee number of Parents that came.
There was health talk session on Basic Life Support, aerobics and a comprehensive health diagnosis by professional health care givers.
The School introduced the much-needed STEAM to her curriculum. The pupils were exposed to the importance of science, technology and art in education. In the course, the children were engaged in many exciting practical group works and educative topics: taught to make toy cars that move by Pressure of air balloon, water recycling machine which fits well into our theme [Machine].
Remedial (Brush Up) Class
Towards the end of the term, we introduced a unique remedial and appraisal class. We are glad for the positive results achieved over a short period and the commendations from Parents. There is tremendous improvement in our pupils’ performances. Glory to God
Club is extracurricular activity made compulsory as part of education package by the ministry of education. It is stated clearly that every child must belong to minimum of two  and Maximum of three . The benefits of club cannot be over emphasized, because it helps to discover the innate ability of the child. Once the God-given gift of the child is discovered, the club helps such to turn that intangible to tangible which eventually brings the child to the spotlight.
New Name and Tag Line.
As informed earlier in the term about the need for registration of a new name for the school, we are glad to announce our new name: Victoria Praise Pearls Hall. In stepping up our standard there is a review of our vision to include leadership. In view of this, our tag line now includes “Leaders Today Tomorrow and Always’’. There is no limit and end to leadership. In VPPS we all learn and unlearn even from our babies and all other pupils. We take time to observe our pupils from creche and through that we learn what to do from them.
We cannot thank our esteemed parents enough for your various contributions towards maintaining standard and the growth of the school. Thank you for your cooperation that made the atmosphere conducive and homely. Please find below our unique ways of saying thank you:
1, Reduction of Fee (Book Loan): In view of the prevailing economic crisis, we have devised a means whereby the school will own some text books on some of our discussion subjects and loan them to the pupils. The advantages of this move include:
- Reduction on books
- Continuous use of quality books
- Upgrading of standard
Please note that pupils will be given these books to use at home and school, but parents should ensure that:
-No name or markings written on them.
-They are not torn or mishandled. Failure will attract penalty of parent paying for the book.
