Greensprings offers educational insight to parents, students
The one-day event, designed to enable prospective parents and students engage with pupils, teachers and administrators of the school will hold in November on each campus of the school.
The event will provide parents with an opportunity to get answers directly from the school administrators, rather than rely only on generic online third party sources.
Head of Corporate Strategy, Uche Ogbu explained that the forum will provide answers to enquiries such as, how does the thinking school curriculum affect my child’s education? Will my child get well-rounded education? What is the appropriate early education next step for my child?
There will also be information on the scholarships obtainable through sports and academic achievements; steps in redefining education in Africa; recent IGCSE students’ performance; being a Nigeria’s first and only thinking school and how it affect today’s society; up-close observation of our teaching methods; opportunities to interact with teachers, students, administrators, parents and alumni.
He said, “It is important to note that choosing the right school for your child can be very emotional and parents sometime require external support to guide them through the process. Get to know us is an avenue to get the necessary support.
In Nigeria, there has been an influx of private secondary schools springing up daily with all kinds of packages; thereby making it more difficult for parents to pick a school of choice for their child.
“At the event, the methods of teaching and learning will be shared with prospective parents and some of them will get a chance to register their children for our ‘Shadow Day’ (a full day experience on campus). If your child qualifies, he/she will be invited to spend a full school day at Greensprings School at a later date. He/she will take part in the classroom and fieldwork for the day. At the end of the shadow day, you and your child will be able to determine if Greensprings is the appropriate school for your ward.”
