Great Blessings prepares Nigerian children and foreign nationals (from daycare to SS3) to be fully conversant with the Nigerian cultural and educational environment, while equipping them the compete at international standards, ensuring they remain up to date and on the cutting edge of contemporary Christian education.

Contemporary Christian Education is based on the Biblical standpoint of man in creation and accordingly each child is developed holistically with attention to the body, soul and spirit.

Great Blessings Schools is a:

Home that welcomes
School that prepares for life
Place where Christian values shape character
Family where lasting friendships are formed

Parents therefore have a responsibility with the School to guide and encourage their children in developing their potential to its fullest extent. The BIBLE is the standard and guide being used to establish this development.

The progress of each student is evaluated at regular intervals throughout the year and a report is made to the parents. It is anticipated that by the end of each school year a student will have attained an acceptable level of achievement and will be promoted to the next grade for the following year.

However, the School Management reserves the right to retain a student in the same grade if a reasonable level of achievement is not attained by the end of the School year.

Spiritual Life Goals

The School seeks to instil in each learner, a desire to serve God and have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Our students should graduate as committed Christians grounded in the scriptures. We encourage our students to exhibit positive attitudes in their lives and to base all of their important decisions on God’s Word.

In addition to a full educational curriculum, Great Blessings conducts regular chapels and ensures weekly church service attendance for boarding students and encourages private devotions.

At Great Blessings, we seek to equip our students with a basic knowledge of the Bible and the ability to find principles for life in God’s Word. It is our conviction that a person, who knows the scriptures and can apply them to his or her situation, is well on his or her way to spiritual maturity.

The Scriptures clearly teach what it means to be a Christian – a disciple or follower of Christ. It is not simply a creed to believe or a code of conduct to follow, but it is a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ; a relationship which affects every value judgment made and every aspect of life, including relationships, moral choices, character, attitude, etc. It is our strong desire that every student at GB grows in their knowledge and love for God, and also grows in their personal relationship with God’s only begotten Son, Jesus Christ!

Devotions

Students in the Elementary and Secondary Schools are encouraged to set aside time each day for personal devotions.

Chapel

Each day there will be a morning chapel (Assembly). Weekly Bible studies will also be held. For the High School, these chapels may feature guest speakers, musicians, videos of Christian leaders and speakers from our own Parents Teachers’ Fellowship. Attendance is mandatory.

Sundays

Sunday is a day for rest and spiritual refreshment. All boarding students are required to attend service at the Living Faith Church, Gwarinpa and dorm devotions.

Day students and their families are also welcome to attend the Bible study on Sunday evenings.
