Preparing your Teenager for Boarding School

Whether a student is joining a new school in the middle of the year or joining at the start of a new school year, this has an impact on both the parent and the student. Here are a few pointers that could be helpful to assist your child in easing into a boarding school.

Roles of Parents in their Child's Education During and After COVID-19

Parents play a pivotal role in shaping the character of children as they grow towards adulthood. As a parent and teacher, I am convinced that the COVID-19 period presents the opportunity for parents to be engaged in the lives of their children like never before. So how can parents support the education of their children during this time and even after schools re-open?

A resolve to delve in different waters as a parent led me to enrol my son Andrew as a Pioneer Student at Nova. I have never regretted the decision and Andrew has become an astute, confident risk leader embracing new dimensions in his day to day life. He has achieved so much in his four years at Nova Pioneer. He has endeavoured to be the best in all he does. Indeed he has become a super soaring eagle better than the mother eagle in me.

Dolphina Alego, Nova Pioneer Parent

Our children have had the wonderful benefit of attending Nova pioneer Athi Campus since January 2019. The caring staff at this institution carry out their responsibilities in caring, nurturing and educating the children to a standard of excellence that we feel would not be easily found within the industry. 

Children are treated, without exception, with kindness and respect, each child is made to feel so valued and important. As a parent, we have always found the lines of communication between the staff at Nova pioneer and parents open at all times. My sons have gained so much confidence during their time.it is so wonderful to see them  growing in confidence and excellence. The level of care and dedication displayed by the entire Nova Team is second to none.
