Welcome Address

from the desk of the Principal

Dear FSTC Jalingo Community

Welcome to the Federal Science and Technical College, Jalingo. We aim to raise boys and girls who would represent a better Nigeria anywhere in the world in both character and learning.

“In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.”            Mother Teresa

In her quote, Mother Teresa very powerfully captures important wisdom about how to approach life (and schooling) to make it more fulfilling and significant.  Teaching and learning offer us all numerous opportunities to focus on a number of “small things” that culminate over time to produce students that are prepared to do the “great things” of life.  With this in mind, ultimately as a school community, we are judged by the actions of our students and the way new student learning connects and impacts the world beyond our school.   As a public school, we are committed to integrating the arts into learning opportunities because we believe that we learn better with and through the arts.  Our mission statement reflects this commitment:

As a former school teacher, I value the social and emotional development of each child as they transition from their primary years through early adolescence.  I value life-long learning and aim to make your child’s learning experience at FSTC Jalingo engaging and exciting. 

As the principal of FSTC Jalingo, I believe that it is my responsibility to maintain and to continue to build a supportive and collaborative spirit at our school.  Together as a school community, we will build on the traditions of the past and meet the challenges of the future in innovative and exciting ways.
