Head Of School's Address
Welcome to Corona School Lekki. We hope that as you join us, you will get to feel our family ethos and also get to understand our vision and the values we uphold.
We also welcome all our new parents and pupils as we look forward to a successful school year.
Our school year commenced on Monday, September 11, 2017. We have our unique identity and we believe that at Corona School Lekki, we have created a friendly, caring and supportive environment that encourages our pupils to fully learn and develop.
All our pupils are encouraged to aim for excellence and to fulfill their individual potentials academically, socially and personally. We want them to become successful, confident and caring adults who will be able to play an active part in a society where adaptability, enterprise and consideration for others are becoming increasingly important. Our strong commitment to excellence is intended to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their ability, aptitude or background, can fulfill their potential.
Traditional values of self-discipline, politeness, responsibility, kindness and sensitivity to the needs of others underpin the school ethos; we take great pride in the warm personal relationships which exist and the involvement of all pupils in some form of community or charitable service at one point in time or the other.
It is worthy to note that the contributions and achievements of all pupils in many ways are recognized and valued. Our pupils, through the Pupils’ Representative Council, are involved in decisions regarding rewards, as well as other areas of school life. Through such discussion and participation, they are encouraged to develop respect for others and understand their responsibilities. It is also noteworthy to mention that the school has espoused the principles of leadership as found in The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, The Six Pillars of Character and The Leader in Me; thus making us a leadership-driven school.
Our parents are not left out as well as we continue to provide opportunities for them to be a part of whole school and smaller class activities throughout the school year. This is an attestation to the fact that our relationship with parents is a vital part of the success of the school. We are partners in the learning process.
We have a commitment to the quality of education received by every pupil in the school and this is complemented by the very strong, well-qualified and committed members of staff who are ever ready to go the extra mile.
