The Registrar and Vice Principal of Holy Cross International College, HCIC, Felix Nodai, has urged students to prioritize their studies as they embark on the second term of the 2023/2024 Academic Year.
Nodai made the statement on Sunday, January 7, as the institution welcomed students back for the next phase of the ongoing academic year.
Recognizing the potential distractions posed by co-curricular activities, Nodai emphasized the need for students to take their academic responsibilities seriously from day one.
“As we begin this term, which presents a blend of academic and extracurricular activities, it is important for students to understand the significance of their studies,” Nodai remarked.
“Following a festive break, we believe students have had ample rest and are now ready to face the challenges of a more demanding term. Throughout this term, events such as Bilingualism Week, Youth Day, Cultural Week, Commonwealth Day, and National Day for Mother Tongue, among others will take place.”
Nodai further expressed, “Students must be aware that this term will present numerous distractions. However, it is essential for them to approach their studies with utmost seriousness.”
“As a school, we are fully prepared to welcome our students. The campus has been meticulously cleaned, teachers have recently participated in a workshop to enhance their pedagogical skills, our cooks are ready to provide nutritious meals, and we remain committed to ensuring the safety and security of our students.”
Addressing the issue of school brutality, Nodai stated that the institution is determined to eradicate all forms of such behavior. The school’s administration, under the direction of the proprietor, advocates for a completely brutal-free environment and maintains a zero-tolerance policy towards any form of brutality, whether it originates from student-to-student interactions or teacher-to-student relationships.
