Dear Parents and Students,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Day Waterman College, an institution that heralds a new chapter in the provision and delivery of high quality international standard secondary education in Nigeria.
At Day Waterman College, it is our firm belief that secondary education remains one of the most important phases of a child’s educational journey because it is in secondary school that the most enduring relationships in a person’s life are made; hence the cliche “Old Boys Network”. Given this background, it is therefore important that the experience of the child at this crucial period of life be solid, rewarding and pleasurable.
Over the last two decades, we have witnessed a marked deterioration in the quality of education available in Nigeria, and its immediate environs, as a result of massive direct government intervention in education. Therefore, the major force driving the founders of Day Waterman College is the desire to reverse this trend. We believe that the Nigerian child should have the benefit of a high quality education while remaining in the local environment that allows them to maintain their cultural values and family affiliations. We are set to provide such an environment.
Towards achievement of these objectives therefore, Day Waterman College will provide education of world class standard in an environment of care, using the best available facilities both locally and abroad, to build the next generation of leaders for our country and indeed the African continent. We seek to provide a platform for education that will meet, and in due course surpass, the most demanding standards available anywhere in the world.
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the unique educational experience that is Day Waterman College.
