Head of School's Address
Welcome to Corona School Ikoyi located at No. 6, Mekwunwen Road, Ikoyi. It is a forward looking primary school for 5-11 year olds. It is set in extensive grounds away from the bustle of the busy main roads.
Corona School Ikoyi opened in 1958. It grew rapidly through the years and presently, has 575 pupils spread across four arms of classes 1-5 and three arms of class 6.
Besides the Head of School, the School has a Deputy Head of School, a Sectional Head, 65 Teaching staff, 9 Administrative staff and 19 Support staff.
Our goals are in line with the Corona Wide Mission of providing world class education to children and inculcating high moral and ethical values in our pupils preparing them for lifelong learning, service and fulfilment. We focus on and are dedicated to producing well rounded children equipped for self-mastery and leadership.
We provide a positive, engaging and fun learning environment where the children can attain their full potential. We do have big ideas to bring out the best in each child for ‘every child is a star; A masterpiece’ and continually strive for excellence both morally and academically with a passion for national and global exposure.
We believe there is no dull child and every child has his/her area of smartness and strength, and as professionals ensure that no child is left behind in the learning process, thus we help our children discover and develop their skills/talents, enabling them attain the full expressions of their potential and giftedness.
Character education is achieved through themes, mantras, moral instructions and regular stage productions related to these themes. In addition to this, we give our children the chance to take the lead in whole school assemblies and school functions. We also get children involved in a reading programme tagged BEAR (BE EXCITED ABOUT READING) where pupils are encouraged to be avid readers and are given bookmarks and BEAR STAR badges. Our children are also involved in several extracurricular activities to help them unwind and consequently work better.
The School is connected to internet facilities to facilitate supervised independent research when pupils are given class assignments. Our specialist rooms – Library, Learning Support Room, Home Economics Room, ICT Laboratory, Science Laboratory, Sick bay, are all equipped with modern facilities. Our classrooms are equipped with interactive white boards and computers.
The development of the whole child is at the heart of the learning centre, so we teach our children to ‘Learn to Love’ and ‘Love to Learn’. Suffice it to say that we do not work alone but with a vibrant Parents Teachers Association (PTA) to keep the home/school link alive and in check.
I hope you find our school page both interesting and informative.
