LIFE AT ATLANTIC
Many of our students will be leaving home for the first time and a number of them have families outside Lagos. We ensure that all students have a home away from home, where they feel included, appreciated and part of a close-knit community.
Our students live in comfortable fully air-conditioned rooms. Each year group has its own block comprising 5 or 6 rooms with modern day conveniences. All hostels have; Common Rooms, Games Areas, and Study Areas. The students share common rooms where they; relax, watch television or entertain themselves.
House Parents have individual accommodation within students’ quadrangles in the hostels to ensure supervision at all times. Our medical personnel also reside within the hostel to provide first aid treatment should the need arise.
We are committed to caring for the students and helping each child to realize their full potential. As stand-in parents, we have meaningful relationships with our students adopting a family style environment which is both warm but well disciplined. We teach them to be responsible and also lay foundational moral values such as discipline, respect, courtesy, diligence & integrity.
We ensure that they learn basic domestic work by integrating these chores into their daily routine. Spiritual guidance & activities for our students are daily morning and evening devotion in the hostels, regular Muslim fellowships on Fridays and Christian services on Sundays.
Atlantic Hall creates various opportunities for our students to acquire leadership and organizational skills by exposing students to public speaking, and leadership training at the Sea School in SS2 where for example, they are prepared to assume higher levels of responsibility. This training helps to further prepare them for the future to become responsible citizens as well as well-adjusted young adults, easily identifiable as key players in society.
Diligence, self-belief, loyalty, personal resourcefulness and enthusiasm are encouraged to support our aim of developing leadership and the acceptance of responsibility. Students develop integral life skills through a range of media; sports, social, cultural and other recreational activities. They become self-confident and express themselves positively without being arrogant. Our students are independent and competitive on the one hand, but truly supportive of one another and excellent team players on the other.
