It will be my concern to move the school forward to greater height of academic achievements and recognition for the school and the students. To achieve these set goals, certain things must be in place. These strategies are as follows:
1. INCREASE THE SCHOOL POPULATION-
o Raising the academic standard through excellent WAEC/NECO Exams will help greatly to amplify and advertise the school. It may just turn out to play the role of a Role model in the environment.
o Adverts: One on one by talking to people about the school, distribution of flyers. I hope to use my media contact to put some of the programmes in the papers ones in a while.
o PTA Meetings:
Soliciting the assistance of the parents to help push the drive for more students.
Visiting public and private primary school without Secondary School. Some of their students can also be invited for some competitions and during some of the school’s programmes.
Both students and teachers must adhere to a high standard of code of conduct; if they see this as a compass, it will greatly enhance the credibility of the school.
Setting up of committees (main and Sub)
Revitalizing of existing committees
Getting parents and teachers on board to help make some far reaching decisions.
4. FINANCE/SCHOOL FEES-
Management will set up an effective strategy for prompt payment of fees, and raise money from other sources.
Parents will be made to understand the importance of prompt payment of fees.
Payments should be made to the bank directly by giving the students tellers and the amount to be paid clearly written or stated on the Teller. Reminders may be sent to parents before resumption of a new term (either through phone calls or PTA meetings). Others ways of raising money has to be thought about and considered.
5. EFFECTIVE MANAGEMENT-
o A good rapport has to be developed between Management and Teachers, Teachers and Students – to take care of the varied intelligent quotients of the students.
o Provisions can be made for seminars/ workshop to enhance teachers’ skill / productivity.
o Liaising with the Ministry of Education regularly for an update of a curriculum and implementing same as the case may be.
6. STAFF INCENTIVES-
o There should be reward for hardworking teachers.
o Instructors should be motivated to achieve set target (sourcing for students, getting very good results etc)
7. EXTRA CURRICULA E ACTIVITIES-
For a balanced learning environment, the students should be exposed to various activities outside academic work. They should be encouraged to form societies/ clubs. (Debating societies, Jet club etc).They can also go for excursions once in a session.
Facilities will be upgraded to meet the standard of the existing schools around for effective competition. This is because facilities reflect the success of the schools development.
