Research

The faculty have committed themselves to engage in groundbreaking research that will add to the knowledge base used to inform educational policy and practice. We present on topical issues that affect our children at national and international conferences.

Community Service and Outreach

As part of its mission to give back to the surrounding communities, the School has formed partnerships with several schools, groups, policy makers and the Ministry of Education Youth and Information.

We seek to:

  • Address the need for continuous professional development by conducting workshops for in-service teachers who need to improve their pedagogical skills.

  • Give technical support to early childhood, primary and special needs schools as they execute calendar events.

  • Work to improve the physical plant of primary schools.

  • Create innovative ways to collect and supply early childhood institutions with educational materials.

  • Support national initiatives geared towards improving the lives of students who have special needs.

The nationally acclaimed Church Teachers’ College Band plays at all school functions and selected community engagements.

Plans are afoot to develop a music programme.
