The Reading, Maths and Science, Debating and Dramatic, French Clubs and the Guiding group all help to instill co-operative spirit and self confidence in the children.
Spiritually, the children are taught from very young the place of God in their lives. Special classes are held also to prepare them for their special spiritual needs.
A very strong and closely knit PTA has evolved, Parents come together often on occasions like Open Days, PTA meetings, Inter House Sports Competitions and Graduation/Christmas celebrations.
The success story of MOS and the growing request by parents for continuity for their children (post primary) in MOS led to the establishment of Mount Olive College, Umunya in October, 2017. The College is equipped with physical, educational and environmental facilities to meet the school’s vision which is to provide world class education at that level – a sure pathway to university education and life after that. The school’s goal is that students will acquire skills, competence and qualifications that would enable them thrive and survive and be the best they can be in a competitive and technologically driven world. A world in which they will be proud Nigerians, who express their God given rich heritage locally and internationally.
