At the Igbinedion Education Centre we aim to provide a sound education for children from 3 to 18 years old. Our ultimate responsibility is for the development and welfare of each individual student and we endeavour to achieve this by providing an environment in which understanding, tolerance and friendship are fostered.
The school’s concept of a ‘sound’ education is characterized by our intension to pursue the following academic and personal objectives for all our students.
1. Intellectual and Academic
Emphasis is placed on the acquisition of appropriate knowledge, as defined in the curriculum, and on the development of the students’ cognitive skills including those of analysis, evaluation and synthesis. The stimulation of intellectual curiosity and the cultivation of the rational and critical facilities are regarded as integral to intellectual development.
We place emphasis on consistent curricular guidelines produced by Head of Departments.
Emotional Development should include a student being positively motivated and gaining self-confidence and an appropriate level of self- esteem. He or she should also be able to cope with criticism and exercise discipline and self- control.
A student should show respect and tolerance and an ability to see other people’s points of view. He or she should be responsible and honest towards himself and others, and show evidence of a willingness to share.
Students are encouraged to develop knowledge, understanding and respect for the customs, moral and aesthetic values of their own cultural environment and also for those cultures which are foreign to them.
