CRC HOSTELS: A UNIQUE WAY OF PARENTING AWAY FROM HOME

CRC hostels are different from the conventional hostel system as bullying is a “no go” area., Students stay with their class mates and they are cared for by the House Parents, House Masters and House Mistresses.

We have three (3) House Fathers and also three (3) House Mothers for boys and girls respectively. The students are grouped into three (3) categories namely Junior, Middle and Senior Schools with JSS1 and JSS2 as Junior, JSS3 and SSS1 as middle and SSS2 and SSS3 as the senior class The College has House Masters and Mistresses attached to each class and this makes the system unique. The students are adequately cared for physically, spiritually and emotionally. These adults serve as counsellors and guides in bringing up the children in a Godly and peaceful environment. The House Parents are full-time staff as they provide all round care for the children. The House masters and mistresses teach in the school and also work with them in the hostels. Prep time in the evening is also monitored by the hostel staff as well as their meals and their hostel chores. This synergy has helped to produce students who are also taught the right values and are brought up in a loving and caring environment with the aim of producing good and responsible adults with sound moral ethical values. In an atmosphere of loving and humane care, students are nurtured to appreciate and live out Christian values. Christian tenets come alive in an environment of love and understanding. The school is fully boarding for all students. Our boarding facilities include:

  • Airy and well-furnished hostels
  • The College runs ‘small group’ room system
  • Purpose-built hostels are coming up in the College campus
  • Ultra-modern kitchen and dining hall, etc.
