    Learning Method

  • The use of modern technology underpins our teaching and learning.
    Every student in the College is encouraged to use internet ready laptops. Notes are sent to the student's laptop and assignments are also sent to the students. The laptops are also used for other projects within the school. Many websites are available for students to widen their scope of understanding but the school runs a tightly controlled access to inappropriate websites.

    Facilities are also provided within the school compound and the students and teachers can access the internet anywhere within the school learning area.

    Some rooms are set aside for e-learning and visual learning. Many class activities, most especially in Sciences and Mathematics are done by electronic means and Preparation is in top gear to write terminal examinations on the computer. This will give students from HAMEC an upper hand NOT ONLY in entrance examinations conducted by most Universities in the country but make them stand out and compete favourably with other students internationally.

    One living example of this is our student OLUWADARE AYOMIDE, who passed out from Redeemer University with 1st Class Upper in computer Science and Engineering.

    The electronic methods of learning have made the students more conversant with the computer systems and enables the students learn faster.

    Pastoral

  • Pastoral care is a key element of education at HAMEC.

    Our Understanding of Pastoral Care
    Pastoral Casework - That is individual work with pupils who are having problems be they of an academic, vocational, social, emotional or behavioural nature.
    Pastoral Curriculum - This includes both the ‘hidden curriculum’ that is the ethos of the school, the day to day relationships between staff and pupils, the value system of a school, the opportunities for moral, spiritual, social and cultural development as well as the more formal and overt pastoral curriculum, which would include, though not be limited to, the PSE work whether done by tutors or by subject specialists.
    Pastoral Control - That is the discipline system which is based on reward and sanction in enforcing positive behavouir focus is more on using rewards to reinforce positive behaviours.

    Our Pastoral Aims
    - To enable each student to fulfil their own potential both academically and socially.
    - To ensure that each student has access to personal, vocational, academic guidance and support where necessary.
    - To provide opportunities for and encourage student to exercise individual and social responsibility.
    - To promote student in the self-awareness and self-confidence that they need to face maximum potential, both academic and personal, that are placed on them.
    - To establish and maintain an appropriate relationship with every parent, so that together we can help to prepare the pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
    - To create a caring environment where pupils are valued for who they are, not just for what they can do.

      Boarding

      Life in a boarding school is something that makes students into strong and well organised individuals. At HAMEC we pride ourselves in the ability of our boarding staff to make it feel like home. Many of students live far away and we come together to make the school what it is.

      Boarding Houses are well maintained and are run by a house parent and house tutor who supervise their boarding life including ensuring that they complete the prep! They ensure that they are able to look after themselves and their environment.
      Each week the staff hold a family meeting where issues can be discussed and resolved.

      Every Saturday and Sunday the students are allowed to call or e-mail their parents and guardians through the cell phones and internet facilities available. Text messages are also sent to the parent or guardian. This is usually done under the supervision of the house parents. Students are allowed to be visited on the first Saturday of every month.
