HOME AWAY FROM  HOME

Doxology We have come to that time in the academic year when we look back and count our blessing, and name them one by one. Surely we have been stupendously blessed by God and we almost could not mention them all, but we would not fail to “Enter into his gate with thanksgiving and into his court with praise……..” God has indeed been faithful to us at Mercyland in general, and at the Mercyland hostel in particular.

We thanks God for keeping, guiding, protecting , and shielding us from the notes of evil. This is not particularly because we excel at what we do at Mercyland (HOSTELS), but God in His infinite mercy has decided to “shield” with us and so we can virtually declare without being pompous that Mercyland hostel is the best. As the name Mercyland implies, we have come to realize that it is not of   him that willeth nor of him that runneth, it is of God that sheweth mercy. We are eternally grateful at Mercyland Hostels that God extends his mercy to us as individuals and as a whole family.

Mercyland hostels open her doors to pupils, students-both male and female, ages from eighteen (18) months, and above. No matter the background or foundation of a child at Mercyland hostels , we train  children in a way they should grow, taking into cognizance, the individual personality, weakness, and strength, and since the inception of the hostels, there has never been an exception in the record of “Conformity”.

The male hostel is situated within the school premises and the residential hall is divided into wings, the College boys’ wing and the Primary boys’ wing. The female hostel is situated close to the school along the labour Arena Road in G.R.A. Female boarders are conveyed from the hostel to the school, and back to the hostel by a standby Luxurious bus driven by competent drivers, and conducted by care-givers and Civil Defense men. Mercyland International schools develop the child socially, mentally, spiritually, psychologically and academically, but the children are not over-loaded with academic work so that they do not become dull. Therefore, boarder engage in extra curricula activities namely: Table tennis, Handball, Basket ball, Cycling etc. Boarders are also trained in different vocational fields. Boys train as Barbers, while girls are trained in Baking, Cooking, Hair dressing, Dress making etc. The children also organize hall to hall week featuring. “Talents” hunt in song-miming, Beauty pageant, Debates, Impromptu speeches, Drama, Quiz competition, etc.

Mercyland hostels have got enough moulding, hands on deck and are blessed with a conducive environment for learning and developing “Sound minds”. The hostels are fully equipped and boarders enjoy “state of the art” facilities such as satellite television, video recorders, Telephone facilities, standby “MIKANO” generating sets, clean water, amusement park, well ventilated residential halls, a large dining hall were nutritious foods are attractively served, a decent Snacks Bar (SOYEMI PAVILLION) and a fully equipped health centre with trained medical personnels. There is also a Guidance and Counseling Department, and religious guidance services.

Talking of security, in Mercyland hostels, our Corporate Guards, and Nigeria Police Force, work hand- in – hand to ensure maximum security of our children. “He that keepeth Israel,  neither slumber nor sleeps” When it becomes mandatory for a boarder to go out of the residential hall, a dully signed ‘Exeat’ is issued to such a boarder by his/her housemaster/matron.

The boarders, both boys and girls have special duty roaster which covers all days of the week. The housemaster/ matron ensure that every boarder fully participates in their assigned duties. Activities commences from 4:00 a.m and ends at 10:15p.m, Mondays to Fridays. On Saturdays and Sundays, activities commences from 6:00a.m and 9:55p.m on Saturdays and 10:00p.m on Sundays respectively.

On every last Saturday of the month, boards observe their Visiting Day between 10:00a.m and 6:00p.m. The Mercyland hostels are built on a fortress that cannot be shaken.

As mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD God is round about us at Mercyland hostels. Come and share with us, and we will do you good, because the Lord has spoken well concerning us.

                                                                                                                                                                           The House Master.
