MUSIC IN CRC

Music has remained a long tradition among Africans and served as a medium where man had freely expressed his feelings, emotions, sentiments and commune with his creator. CRC is not an exception to this unique African traditional practice. Apart from the fact that music is taught as a compulsory subject in the Junior Secondary School, it is also meant to identify some musical potentials and to develop the musical trait in the student through the use of JSCE, WAEC and NECO syllabi. Music is taught as an optional subject in the Senior Secondary School, at this level, we make use of WAEC, NECO and IGCSE syllabi. Music in CRC is also taken as extra-curricular activity where we have various musical groups such as the College Mass Choir which partake in concerts, music competition and most importantly minister at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) special Holy Ghost service. As a matter of fact, Music Room in the school is a place, one will love to be, in terms of its well-ventillated atmosphere, furniture, modern whiteboard and ultramodern musical instruments such as the Upright piano, Trumpets, Saxophones, Violins, Guitars, Brigade Bands and a very sophisticated public address system. CRC is blessed with many qualified instrumentalists and talented music teachers. These crop of professionals make sure that as a tradition, an average CRC student can play at least three different musical instruments before leaving the school. Music has really been developed in the school by these wonderful men who have great passion for the subject and always strive to bring about positive change in the life of the students.

SECURITY

The College employs the services of trained security operatives. The guards are trained to protect lives and property of students and every other member of CRC community. They work both day and night, checking persons and things coming into and going out of the College. The lives and belongings of our students and staff are very important to us                  

CLASSROOMS

The College has no problem with classrooms. They are more than enough for students. Each is complete with all the facilities for hitch-free teaching/learning activities any time of the day. One remarkable thing about our classrooms in CRC is that they are not crowded. Population per class ranges between 15 and 25 students. Teachers find the classes easily manageable and ensure that every student is reached for maximum assimilation of what is taught. As a matter of dedication to professional practice and commitment to the success of students, teachers in CRC sacrificially expend time and effort on existing and transfer students, especially those from Europe and America, to ensure that they are academically sound. More often than not, classroom teaching/learning sessions are participatory, thanks to the creative ability of the teachers
