Maximus Elementary School
Our Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the middle of the first term. In the first half of this term we had many activities on ground. It has been joyful and eventful time for the children and we too, have enjoyed seeing your children thrive. Being in line with our theme for this session, “Happiness lies in the joy of achievement”, we want to share our joy with you and give you a brief report on the past activities.
On the 29th of September, 2017 Maximus School was celebrating 57th anniversary of Independence of our Motherland, Nigeria. Each level was representing major Nigerian tribes – Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba. It was fun and beautiful event.
World Teachers’ Day
On the 5th of October, 2017 the teachers around the world were celebrated and appreciated. Since we are global learners, this event did not bypass our teachers. Maximus students showed how they value and respect their teachers.
Elections of the school prefects
Students in Maximus are future leaders. That is why we are training them to be good leaders even in this early age. On the 27th of October, 2017 elections with the open ballot took place on the playground of our school. As the result of the elections, Dara Ayeni became a Head boy and Tomiwa Ogunleye became a Head girl, Labake Adegbite – Assistant Head girl, Chibuikem Nwachukwu – Assistant Head boy, Simbiat Abati – Assembly prefect.
On the 23rd of October, our pupils started their middle of the term examinations. It’s very important part of continuous assessment that helps to evaluate the achievements of each child. All pupils tried their very best to get high scores.
Swearing in ceremony for school prefects
After the elections on the 27th of October, our elected leaders – Head boy, Head girl, Assistant Head boy, Assistant Head girl and Assembly prefect swore to all Maximus students, in the presence of their parents and teachers, to serve them faithfully and without partiality, to be good leaders in everything and to encourage everyone to do right things.
