MEDICALS
We have qualified medical personnel for medical care. A medical practitioner is on call throughout the period when our pupils/students are in the school. In cases of emergency or hospitalization, arrangements are in place with a reputable private hospital where students receive treatment and parents are notified immediately.

SECURITY
The external gates of the school are manned by trained security personnel with the gates locked and operated from inside the school, except when identified visitors are coming in or going out. A visitor is required to sign in at the gate, and report to the reception within the school premises. This in no way detracts from the open-door policy of the school. At the Nursery and Primary School, children are collected from their classrooms at the end of each day and they will only be released to parents or official collectors who show the permission card, who will then sign the collection book. Children will only be taken off-site with prior permission of parents. Movement of all personnel and vehicles entering or leaving the compound is strictly screened. More so, CCTV cameras are strategically placed to complement the efforts of our security personnel.
