Humanities

The Humanities Department seeks to develop in the child a ‘conscience’ more suited to the multicultural world in which we live.

We develops the following in the student:
  • Spiritual, moral, religious, faith, knowledge of the here-after, ability to relate well with their maker and also enjoy peaceful co-existence with one another.
  • Innate nature of man in administration, good governance, and also groom future leaders in line with the school’s motto: LEARN, LIVE and LEAD!
  • Fostering political consciousness and a good understanding of Nigeria’s political system.
  • Awareness of their fundamental human rights.
  • An exposure to other people’s culture.
  • Maximizing the resources within the environment.
