Parents who still wish to effect all other kinds of payment (e.g. pocket money, college customized bed spread, notebooks, cardigan, tie, socks, house-wear, etc.) will however be accommodated.

Please note that the Security/ Exeat Clearance card is a prerequisite for subsequent entry into the college.
vii. STEP 7 - Hostel Clearance: All students must present their belongings for check before proceeding into the hostels. This is in a bid to prevent the influx of contraband items.

As a matter of policy particularly with respect to the safety students, all parents, most especially those who are new, will be required henceforth to present their security clearance/exeat card to designated officials of the college before such a parent/guardian can access his/her child/ward.
Parents who are yet to obtain their security clearance card from the school are enjoined to kindly forward to email@example.com or via Whatsapp 08105533560 a scanned passport of theirs that is well labelled (having the parent’s name together with the name and class of the child(ren)
