Did you know that reading is one of the most fundamental skills a child needs to learn to succeed in life? Developing good reading habits is vital to your child’s future not just academically, but in everyday life as well. Here are 5 reasons you should develop reading habits young, and its importance.

  • Reading develops vocabulary: The more your child reads, the more new words will find their way into his/her vocabulary. Reading allows for exposure to words and phrases that you might not use as part of normal speech. “When you read aloud to your child, you are not only helping to prepare your child to learn to read, you are also exposing your child to the rich language he/she otherwise might not hear”.
  • Reading increases attention span: Encouraging good reading habits from an early age develops your child’s attention span and allows them to focus better and for longer periods of time.

The new Grade Book Feature captures subject assessments that have been taken over the entire period of a term. This feature (accessed solely by a subject teacher), allows the configuration of as many tests or assessments as desired for each subject. This means that assessments given per topic, or on a weekly, monthly, or even daily basis, can be captured and used as a percentage of some preconfigured assessment.

Most public and private schools in Nigeria wear a uniform. Yours may consist of blazer and tie, full trousers or shorts, skirt or dress, a pinafore or even a hat; formal school wear is a part of everyday school life. We generally accept this because we know that the uniform shows that you are part of an organisation.

A school uniform is one of the many things potential parents often observe when making a decision to send their children to a new school. Besides giving your school an identity in the community, your school uniform can tell a lot about your school’s values and priorities.
