Students learn about Nigeria’s role in global systems, and are encouraged to appreciate democratic principles and to contribute as active, informed and responsible citizens.
In Literature, Government and Geography, students explore the processes that have shaped and which continue to shape different societies and cultures, to appreciate the common humanity shared across time and distance, and to evaluate the ways in which humans have faced and continue to face different challenges.
