About Us

BACKGROUND

Sanctus Lumen Christi School is located on a seven thousand five
hundred (7500) square metre piece of land in a peaceful hub of the capital,
Durumi, Area 1. It is under Abuja Municipal Area Council. It is privileged to
be located a distance from the major express way of Area 1. This shields it
from the boisterous and commercial atmosphere of the city, whilst being
easily accessible by all and sundry. It is just behind the old Federal
Secretariat. On entering the Sanctus Lumen Christi School gate, you have on
your immediate left, the security post, from where the eagle watchful eyes
of trained and experienced security personnel see people and things.

‘If they ever tell my story let them say that I walked with giants. Men
rise and fall like the winter wheat, but these names will never die. Let
them say I lived in the time of Hector, tamer of horses. Let them say I
lived in the time of Achilles.’

These great words of Odysseus in ‘The Troy’ underscore the
importance of history. For great men and women have lived in this world and their tales recorded in paper. Such feat was and is replicated here in SANCTUS LUMEN CHRISTI SCHOOLS.

It is delight taking you through this trip to explore the world of Lumen Christi. It is the making of SANCTUS LUMEN CHRISTI SCHOOLS. A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. (Marcus Garvey)

 

SYNOPSIS OF THE SCHOOL

Like a dream borne of clear vision, a future pictured in crystal clear
nature, the child of yesterday is gradually growing into an enviable stature
of a man. It was officially opened on November ih, in the year 2005, a
decade this year. With just a pupil, head teacher, two teaching staff and
three non-teaching staff the school has grown in leaps and bounds and is
still growing.)t has three sections of Nursery, Primary and Junior Secondary.
With the finest of teachers, best of staff, astute management, conducive environment and well groomed pupils/students. It was a vision borne by an
educator par excellence. One who has frolicked in the various tentacles and tendrils of the educational sphere. The big dream now a reality.

WHEN ESTABLISHED

The school was established on sound principles of educational
prospect. The progenitors stated ‘we have watched with interest the
development of educational institutions in the new federal territory, Abuja
since early eighties. As we monitor the children produced from these
institutions, we came to the conclusion that some important aspects of
growth are being compromised. To contribute to the educational
development of the community, the management decided to provide a
school that would address most of the problems faced by parents, kids and the society at large. We intend to make the cost affordable, without
compromising the quality of academics and to instil values essential for the
complete development of a child.’

The school therefore was officially established and took off operations on
the 7thof November, 2005. This was under Chief OlusegunObasanjo’s
administration. The then Minister of F.C.T was allamNasir Ahmad EI-Rufai,
presently the governor of Kaduna state. The Minister of Education was
erudite Mrs. ChinweObaji (June 2005 to June 2006).

THE VISION

The vision states:

We are driven by the commitment to truly discover and nurture the
intellectual and creative capabilities of our children, cognizant of their cultural affinities in morals, religions, and in psychology with a view
to opening them up to the service of God and man.

The vision can be summed up into the following five (5) points:

  1. The vision is about people, especially the child. It has been proven that one can’t succeed in life if one is not people minded
  2. The vision is about the discovery of the hidden potentials, creativity
    and capabilities of the child. Psychologist have proven via the innate
    factor theory that man is not born an empty slate ‘tabula rasa’
  3. The vision is about aligning morality and cultural diversities into the
    uniqueness of learning.
  4. The vision is about recognizing religious and individual differences of the child.
  5. It is finally about the service to God and Humanity.

THE MOTTO

The words which form part of heraldic achievements of the school is
encapsulated in these words: “knowledge, Service, Excellence”.

We believe that for one to deliver, right knowledge must be acquired. When
such knowledge is acquired, it should birth service. And the service must be
rendered in an excellent manner. This is because ‘what is worth doing is
worth doing well.’

The mission which is birthed from the vision is all about excellent
tuition pursuant and delivery. This can’t be achieved without a team of great
teachers, and strong administration. It seeks to make tuition fees affordable,
while not lowering the international standard of education. The mission
