Our Philosophy

At Lara Day School we believe that

  • Each child is divinely equipped with a unique set of potentials and is worthy of respect as an individual.
  • Each child is a physical, mental, spiritual and emotional being and the function of the education we give is to help all the pupils develop in each of these four areas to the fullest of their capacities.
  • Service to the world and the community is the underlying motivation we must impact to our pupils who are disciplined and creative learners and who will balance the pursuit of personal development with the biblical model of servant-hood.
  • Our school must value individual growth and achievement, cultural diversity within the school community and the development of a sense of responsibility to and concern for the largest community as a whole.
  • Our staff must be made up of individuals who have love and understanding for children, who are professionally competent and who have an active interest in the affairs of their community, their country and the world.
  • Lara Day school programme must help prepare its graduates to benefit from higher education, to continue to educate themselves because they value education as a life-long process, and to participate in and improve the community in which they live.

A Little of Our History

The school was founded by the late Rev. Akin Adesola of blessed memory, on May 1, 1963, in loving memory of his late mother Mrs. Victoria Omolara Adesola, who died on February 27, 1926, when he was only five months old. She was trained, certificated and devoted teacher and a lover of children. The Ministry of Education, Ibadan, of the old Western Region, conducted the necessary inspection of buildings and facilities and the school was granted the approval to operate as a Nursery/Primary school in April 1963. Upon the subsequent creation of Lagos State, a second approval was given by the Ministry of Education, Alausa, Ikeja on July 1, 1987.

Our Objectives

  • To provide pupils with a challenging curriculum designed to develop their intellectual powers.
  • To help pupils develop habits of industry and thoroughness and a desire for knowledge.
  • To nourish pupils’ powers of appreciation and creativity so that they may enjoy life, love and understand their cultural heritages and engage in works of worthwhile self-expression.
  • To guide pupils’ attitudes so that they may develop tolerance, sympathy and an active sense of responsibility toward all people and at the same time exercise honesty, decency, and duty in their own behaviour.
  • To encourage the care and development of the body through teaching intelligent health habits and through encouraging participation in a diversity of vigorous physical activities, many of which can be enjoyed throughout life.
  • To teach both leadership and cooperation by giving opportunities in all facets of school life for initiatives and responsibility, tact and self-control.
  • To foster good, responsible and productive citizenship by creating the awareness that government based on democratic principles requires the concern, participation and sacrifice of every citizen.
  • To demonstrate the importance of a belief in God as revealed in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ and to teach pupils to recognize that respect for other religious traditions enhances one’s own faith.
