Correction of Misconception.

We wish to clear the misconception concerning school fees for 1st term 2019/2010.

Pls be informed that JIC school fees as from Sept 2019 is N132,500.

What the Proprietor/Coll. Admin said at PTA meeting of 20/7/19 was that management accepted N132,500 as school fee from Sept 2019, hoping that the fees will stand the test of time, if not, N2500 will be added to the fee from 2nd term.

You will recall that N132,500 was the position of parents at the April 2019 PTA meeting where school fees increment was tabled and discussed.

He added that as from 2nd term 2019/2020, N5, 000 will be added to the school fees of Science students.

So what you have in the teller for 1st term is correct.
