The first term terminates with a three-week Christmas break that begins in mid December and ends in the first week of January. The second term terminates with a three week Easter break from end of April till middle of May. The third term that brings the school year to a close ends with an eight week holiday, from middle of July to the middle of September, for the long vacation or summer break. A two-day midterm break comes in the middle of each term. All statutory public holidays are observed. Parents will be informed about specific dates from time to time in advance.

School Day

The school day starts at 8:00a.m and ends at 3:00p.m for all classes. Each day begins and ends with a Christian worship conducted for the nursery and primary sections. Lateness is not tolerated. Children must be brought and collected promptly in the mornings and afternoons. Children are not allowed to leave the school before the closing time except in special cases and permission must be obtained from the office.

Homework / Projects

Homework is an important part of the child’s education and it is a method of evaluating the child’s understanding of the work done in the class, while projects help the child carry out intensive learning. Homework is given daily and parents are expected to ensure their children do their homework properly and neatly and that they are brought to school for submission on the due date which is usually the following school day.

Role of Parents

Garland School is in partnership with parents for the raising of their children. We do not claim we can do it alone. Therefore, your role as a parent in the upbringing of your child cannot be overemphasized. Parents must review their children’s homework every day, complete and endorse the Daily Monitoring Book, must ensure their children’s home work and project assignments are done promptly and properly, attend Parents Forum and PTA Meetings whenever scheduled.
