At Lead-forte Gate College we recognize that students have the ability to move towards independence and self-control when there are involved in variety of activities. We encourage our students to experience all the invigoration and excitement of co-curricular activities including Entrepreneurship Development Training Programs, Character & Leadership Training, Public speaking, etc.
Our school operates an integrated system of education which encourages our students to be independent and entrepreneurially minded.
Lead-Forte Gate College partners with Junior Achievement Nigeria, a non-governmental organization, to provide the practical skills needed to develop commercial awareness in our students. We expose them to the different opportunities available in a developing economy like Nigeria, and aim to ignite a passion for creativity and enterprise development. At the end of basic entrepreneurship training, students will be trained in various hands-on activities of their choice. We also hope that through this exercise, our students can become future employers of labour, and major stakeholders in the Nigerian Economy.
“Successful leadership is not about being tough or soft, sensitive or assertive, but about a set of attributes. First & foremost is character” (Warren Bennis)
At Lead-Forte Gate College, Leadership is our mantra, and we believe that character is an essential tool to becoming a good leader. Character & Leadership training is therefore a key exercise which is undertaken to promote these values in our students. We organize training sessions which are run by both internal and external facilitators. We also ensure that each student is given some form of responsibility in the school to enable them develop their confidence and team-working skills. In addition, our students are carefully guided by our academic and non-academic staff to ensure accountability for positions of responsibility placed in.
Music training is one of our core activities at Lead-Forte Gate College. We ensure that our students are well grounded in both the theoretical and practical aspects of music, and encourage each student to be skilled in at least one musical instrument. Through this exercise, our students are able to discover and develop their musical talents, they also get the chance to showcase these skills during our in-house events like Concerts, African Orchestra, Drum-line, etc, and also at events outside of the school.
Education in no longer for the sole purpose of acquiring certificates without much evidence of knowledge advancement. To this effect, we have infused into our curriculum a new program known as STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & craft, Mathematics), a project-based and problem-solving approach to teaching and learning. This is both a fun and interactive way of learning, which has been proven to facilitate creativity, innovation and value creation in young people.
It is therefore an integral part of our curriculum, and a part of our objective at Lead-Forte Gate College to provide an all-inclusive world-class education that develops students’ knowledge, skills and attitudes.
LFG understands that the school library is a catalyst for literacy and reading and for teaching and scaffolding inquiry learning. We have broad collections of resources in many formats and enthusiastic, trained librarians to support students in using and applying information resources to build new knowledge.
