A word of welcome by the Director
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Sun and Shield School. The school derives its name and direction from Psalm 84:11 which states as follows – “for the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favour and honour; no good thing does He withhold from those whose walk is blameless.” The influence of this verse on our activities in the school is immense as we strive to walk in the light of Christ, letting the word of God be a lamp to our feet and a light to our path (Psalm 119:105). All the good things we desire can be given to us if we walk blameless before God. Therefore, leading upright lives is not the option here, from the Director’s to the teaching and none teaching staff and the pupils, only then can we receive favour and honour from the LORD, which is our ultimate goal. Therefore, Psalm 84:11 dictates our moves and direction.
The school opened it’s doors in 2007 and has since grown steadily in numbers and development. We have done well over these few years and the alumni have found placement in reputable high school’s and subsequently, university, for our pioneer class. The icing on the cake is the character formation and the fear of God that our pupils benefit from as they pursue their studies. Our character building curriculum is embedded on God’s word – “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you” Psalm 119:9 is a favourite here. Every week of the school year has a character trait and a verse to back it up, which is memorised. For example
In the 21st Century, giving information to the pupils so as to enable them make informed choices is very important. Therefore, guidance is a vibrant department where information on issues of life is given, ranging from time and self management to critical issues that touch on physical and social health is concerned. This goes a long way in strengthening to moral fiber of the individual and the community at large. Peer counselling is one of the routes we take to this destination.
The parents who have had their children here have appreciated the divine influence their children have had. The pupils have also testified to the fact that knowing Christ through our pastoral programmes have made a great difference in their lives. This is real success as character is very essential for the prosperous progress of our pupils and alumni. When confronted with difficult situations, our product is trusted to make the right decision. You can entrust your precious one to us and together, mould and individual you will not have to cry over tomorrow.
I believe what the Bible says and for sure, “train up a child in the way he/she should go, and when he/she is old, he/she will not turn away from it” (Proverbs 22:6). In Sun and Shield School, we aim at training the child in five key areas; spiritually, academically, physically, socially and economically.
I can assure you that you will not only gain from one aspect but all. Try us out. There is much more that is unique to Sun and Shield School that will put a smile on your face. I will love to be part of your team in raising a winner. Welcome to Sun and Shield School.
