Student Leadership

Halifield Schools provides Student with a supportive learning environment that develops leadership skills through character based opportunities.  We are committed to enabling students to become our society’s next generation of leaders- individuals ready to speak up, step up, meet a need and effect positive change.

Students are challenged on all levels and are required to work cooperatively to achieve set goals, respect themselves and others, inspire and motivate their peers and promote a culture of school pride and belonging. Student leaders are responsible, fair minded, positive and caring representatives of,  and advocating for, the student body.

Potential Students Leadership roles include Head Boy and Head Girl, Sports Prefect, Library Prefect, Social Prefect and much more.  These leaders are selected based on their academic records, demonstrated leadership, service, character, integrity,

ALL ABOUT LEARNING

Pupils learn in a happy environment. We believe that once their basic needs are met, for being heard, having good self-esteem and good relationships with all kinds of people (young and old), they will naturally learn the things they need to learn once they are excited about doing so.

Co-education

Halifield Schools is a co-educational school. We embrace diversity, equality and offer a wide range of learning experiences, friendships and role models. When boys and girls learn and play together, broadening and influencing each other every day, they develop sophisticated social and emotional understanding.

We believe that co-education best prepares children for their future as compassionate, productive and socially-aware learners and people.

BEAUTIFUL SOUNDS ARE CREATED HERE.

At Halifield Schools, we make significant investment in developing our students’ potentials. Our outstanding music programme is designed to help students build their musical skills. We provide them with the platform to showcase their talents and we nurture in them a sense of worth and accomplishment.

Apart from regular music lessons at primary and secondary levels, students elect to take extra-curricula classes, which cater to a range of students abilities, from foundation to advanced. Students can take classes in dance – contemporary and African, and  orchestra – children master instruments of their choice in woodwind, brass, strings, percussion and synthesizers. All students participate in choral lessons.

WE ARE HALIFIELD!!!!!

Good relationships in a team can be beneficial at work and elsewhere. When everybody gets along, they’re more inclined to help one another without expecting anything in return. Remember, the goal is to build a business and create an excellent working environment. When the team falls apart, so does the quality of the company. When everybody works together and gets along well, there’s a much higher likelihood of good work being produced. It’s not a complicated concept, and ‘teamwork makes the dream work’ sums up the idea.

When a team collaborates effectively, gets along, and puts in their fair share of the effort, it’s possible to get everybody on the same page about what the goals of the company are. When employees are motivated and encouraged to work together to solve problems, they cease to be employees and they become a team. When the company benefits, everybody else does, too.

SPORTS

Here at Halifield Schools, there are several sports that students can plug into. From football, Basketball, volleyball, badminton, there is something for everyone.

Playing  sports keeps kids fit, healthy, and physically skilled ready. Other benefits also include the following:

  • develop leadership skills.
  • get chance to meet like minded people.
  • Improve communication skills.
  • learn sportsmen spirit.
  • Understand power of teamwork.

HANDS ON LEARNING

Here at Halifield Schools, we believe that by involving students in a total learning experience (i.e. learning by doing), their ability to think critically is significantly enhanced. They also learn to think independently, and reduce their dependence on authority.

.They are able to apply what they have learned inside the classroom in their everyday lives – they can also apply the whole learning experience to various life situations.

THE STUDY BOOST PROGRAM

Halifield College’s Remedial educational program (Study Boost) is a specific educational intervention aimed at addressing the identified learning needs of a student (or group of students) who is lagging behind academically or not mastering specific competencies at early class levels (JS 1 and JS 2 specifically).

Due to the fact that each student has different learning strengths and gaps, Halifield’s individualized remedial educational program is an important element among the efforts to improve education outcomes of low performing students of different ages and from different educational backgrounds.

The purpose of this remedial educational plan is;

  • To quickly assess individual student academic deficiencies.
  • To develop customized learning paths for struggling students to improve outcomes

As a result, this remedial program:

  • Involves mostly individualized instruction
  • Teaches problem areas/topics step-by-step without skipping over content
  • Is conducted at the student’s pace
  • Offers regular reviews and practice exercises to reinforce learning and practice applying new knowledge
  • Includes assessments indicating what the student has learned and whether he/she’s ready to move ahead.

CYBER BULLYING

Words of a broken mind and heart

Condemned and shunned,

My mind can function no longer.

Battered and bruised,

Like life at the battle field

It can fight no further.

 

A heart as tender as grass,

Can’t seem to take any hurt.

Even with the elevation of class,

One can only be as broken as glass.

 

Beauty is said to be in the eye of the beholder,

Seems to me words of a true heart raider.

For us, beauty seems to be radiant,

To drag down my esteem,

And say you’re making me feel supreme.

It only takes a matter of time,

Before you truly see.
