            In our thrust for school improvement, we are focused on Character Education, Literacy and Numeracy. Action Research principles and guidelines were adopted for the numerous structures developed for all focused areas. These initiatives and programmes were piloted at class level and then implemented at school level with termly and yearly modifications.   

          It has been twelve (12) years of successful and effective planning; monitoring of the instructional process and students progress both morally and academically.
