THE DIRECTOR

Deep roots, ‘invisible’ yet significant growth

Our objective is to continue to lay strong
foundations in each child so that they all build
deep solid roots that will propel resilient and fast
growth as they develop. A good analogy is
found in the well-known ‘Chinese bamboo’ story,
(as related by Les Brown):-

“It is said that the Chinese Bamboo Tree begins
as a nut, a hard nut, about the size of a walnut.
The nut has to be planted in soil and then
watered and fertilized every day, every day for 5
years before it finally breaks through the ground.
If at any time the watering or fertilizing process
is stopped, the Chinese Bamboo Tree will die in
the ground. But, in that fifth year, the Chinese
Bamboo Tree finally breaks through the ground
and in six weeks it grows nearly ninety feet tall!”

THE HEAD OF SCHOOL

Sporting activities at Busy Bees and West Mills have
also blossomed, bringing excellence and enjoyment
into learning. Notable are our MPAC Basketball
academy, the soccer league and our Lawn Tennis
academy. One of our soccer players made it into the
Barcelona football academy! What an achievement!

The WESTAC (West Mills Festival of Arts and Culture)
was one of the major highlights of the year. It was a
celebration of our diversity and the various cultures
represented by the school community and society at
large. The students took it beyond our dreams making
it a notable event among schools in Apapa. You will
find in this edition, photos that may give you a small
representation of the beauty of the event.

THE PRINCIPAL

Welcome to our ninth edition of Busy Bees
and West Mills yearbook. It has been a
productive and successful year of growth
marked with remarkable events for our school. This
growth was experienced in diverse areas ranging
from the extracurricular activities to the academics
All growth depends upon activity. There’s is no
development physically or intellectually without effort
and effort means work [Calvin Coolidge]. Indeed our
teachers have worked tirelessly, putting in effort and
new innovative strategies to help students learn;
spending endless hours volunteering, chaperoning
and doing whatever was necessary to support the
students. Your labour of love cannot go unrewarded;
we are absolutely proud of you.

Special thanks to our PTA who, as usual, went above
and beyond the call of duty to provide whatever was necessary to add to our students’
already rich learning experience.

Our students have worked hours and hours -- some of them burning the midnight oil on
homework, and special projects --- and succeeded time and again proving their
character and dedication. Our checkpoint results were astounding this year with records
of distinctions and merits. We are indeed grateful to God for crowning their efforts with
success.

In the extracurricular, the WESTAC event, which is held biennially, took a turn for the
better. The event was packed full with exciting activities and side attractions which won’t
be forgotten in a hurry. Also, our long awaited music academy has finally kicked off.
Indeed, it is a great addition to our extracurricular activities because it serves as a key to
unlocking the untapped potential embedded in our children. Many thanks once again to
the PTA and, most especially, our committed and diligent chairman, Mr. Eze for making
the academy a reality.

According to James Cash Penney, growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces
working together. I look forward to a new academic year of us working together so that
we can improve further still. I look forward to us seeking to do better; to challenge
ourselves and our students to set the highest standards and achieve our ambitious goals.
Here’s wishing you all an awesome time this summer.

Mrs. Mfonobong Etim

SMOKE

By Teniola Agunbiade

Has a fiery smell
Pollutes the air!
Makes you feel sick

And weak
No taste, but much waste

You see the black color
And its strong odour
You hear the sound
Sometimes loud
Sometimes low

But never like a rainbow.

My Sick Day

Here I am in my pyjamas
All curled up in my bed,
A rumble in my belly
And a fever in my head.
I will not go to school today
Missing recess is no fun
All my lucky classmates
Are probably on the run
I wonder what they're serving?
