HOW DO YOU RUN A SCHOOL WITHOUT AN ANNUAL MASTER PLAN?
ANNUAL CALENDARS/TERM ACADEMIC TIME-TABLES
Most good school managers know the importance of an annual master plan otherwise called “calendar of school events”. In fact before an academic day-to-day timetable is put in place a global plan for the academic year/term must be at the back of their minds.Such a calendar will also point out days that might be out-of-bounds for day-to-day academic programs.
The net has many theories on the advantages and methods for building up a school’s calendar of annual events.In some cases these theories list out what should be included or left out.But most agree that each school has what in Nigeria we call “its own unique flava”. Please find below FOR PRACTICAL REFERENCE AND USE the annual events’ calendar of Mason College Festac for a particular year.We hope some school managers can grab some inspiration from the calendar and mix with their “local flava”. And we are not just referring to school’s down south or in the urban areas of the country alone.It does not matter whether you are in Oturkpo,Katsina-Ala, Gboko or Adikpo (all in Benue state) there is no reason you cannot join hands with a few others including those on NYSC to map out an annual but definite road for your school to follow.This of course must be with the consent of any higher authority in the school,if necessary.
What is presented below is the work of a TIMETABLE COMMITTEE of Mason College as later approved by the school’s General Management Team (GMT) made up of the Principal,Assistant Director and Director.An example of a covering letter/invitation to parents is also included…..MASON COLLEGE EVENTS CALENDAR
