Rosebud's Story

What began as a day-care centre has, like the proverbial acorn, grown into a mighty oak with its branches spreading to and having an influence that spans the continents of Africa and Europe. Rosebud School offers the Nigerian, British and American curricula. The Rosebud Kiddies School, comprising the Nursery/Primary Section took off in September, 2006. The assertion by Aristotle, that “whoever opens a school door, closes the door to a prison”, triggered the founders’ unquenchable thirst to educate the youths further by opening wide the gates of the secondary arm, Rosebud College, in 2008 to welcome its first set of students into JSS 1 and JSS 2.

Since the admission of its first set of students, the school has gained a reputation for academic excellence, including inculcating the right values in its students and equipping them for life.

 Knowing that change is the only constant thing in life, the school has consistently updated itself to stay abreast of education best practice by constantly producing students who have performed astonishingly well in their various fields of endeavor. The quality of education offered in Rosebud School is evident in the school’s resolve to add craft and other creative activities to the school’s curriculum with little or no cost. Both information and communication Technology[ICT] and vocational skills are integral part of learning in Rosebud School. The school believes that learning is an unbroken activity that is continued throughout an individual’s life. Education, therefore, should foster independent thinking, exploration and experimentation as a life – longprogress.

Meet the Proprietress

Mrs. C.F Aderogba, , is at the heart of the divine success story behind the founding of the Rosebud School. She is a woman called to serve with excellence as her watch word. She has a great passion for education and a brighter future for Nigeria. An unassuming and humility typified woman, her open door policy, motherly affection benevolent nature, coupled with an indomitable spirit and love for children and youths are some of the qualities that endear her to children, staff and parents. This is why all and sundry give her the name “Mummy”. She is oftenheard saying that, “In training a child to inculcate in him a sense of excellence in achieving greater heights, in making an impact in world around him in any field of his choice, a teacher must be able to make every effort to do what leads to peace and mutual edification in the society, thereby, building a strong nation”. An educationist and teacher, whose teaching experience spans over three decades,Mrs. Aderogba is a spiritual mentor with many educational merit awards at her disposal. Her knack for servant – leaders style of administration with the passion to do what leads to peace and mutual edification has always been the key to the school’s success story.

Our Core Values

Since we are dedicated to providing, for our future leaders, opportunities that will enable them to achieve their highest mental, physical and moral potentials, we have the following as our core values:

  1. Quality of Character

A school of thought notes that beauty doesn’t ultimately consist in physical outlook but in character. The implication of this is that the quality of an individual’s character goes a long way to mark him or her out as a responsible personality in his or her community. There is no contending the truth that our society is this bad because there is obviously a crisis of good character. Given this reality, one doesn’t need to be amazed any longer as to why vices outnumber virtues in our society. For us to play our role in puncturing the big baloon of waywardness which pervades all strata of our society, we encourage out students, through exemplary leadership, to arm themselves with quality of character. This, we believe, will make them shine in the midst of darkness anywhere they find themselves.

 

  1. Hardwork

We at Rosebud School subscribe, quite strongly, to the view that God, our creator, is a graphic illustration of the value of hardwork. He exuded this winsome value when He had to work for six consecutive days before He decided to rest on the seventh day. Hardwork, we believe, helps in bringing wholesome success on the path of humans. Francis Bacon once affirmed, “I will work hard; then opportunity will come”. We do our utmost in drawing the attention of our students to various icons who are worthy models in the terrain of hardwork. We stress the benefits that are associated with the value of hardwork.

 

  1. Creativity

Creativity has been defined in diverse ways by scholars based on their chosen interests. Andrew Horwitz, a specialist in art and cultural strategies, defined creativity as the art of dreaming or as the ability to harness artistic imagination and vision to effectively implement unexpected, innovative ideas. To us at Rosebud School, the importance of crativity in relation to global development can never be underestimated. It is unfortunate to see most nations suffer serious setbacks today because thinking heads refuse to manifest. Where creativity is missing, all the indices of backwardness will constitute a normal feature. Our students are exposed to a number of productive processes that help in bringing out the best in them. We make them rest assured that whatever they can dream or create, as Aristotle said, they can achieve.

 

  1. Pursuit of Excellence

In our school, we do not suffer mediocrity gladly. Our position is that an individual must strive towards attaining the height of excellence in whatever area his or her interest lies. This is why we try our best at not only celebrating excellence but also enshrining it. While we, as a school, have been celebrated by different organisations and bodies on account of excellence, we have equally succeeded in celebrating people {Our students inclusive} on the grounds of excellence. We instil the value of excellence in our students, using the means of established motivational speakers who are drawn from all walks of life. To spur our students into a tireless pursuit of excellence, we always leave them with this remark, “That you are classmates today doesn’t mean you will end up as mates tomorrow. Excellence shows the difference”.

 

  1. Can-do-it Spirit

Given that our God is never identified with impossibility, we at Rosebud School, have never shared the pessimistic view that certain things are quite impossible for humans to achieve. This is because we know pretty sure that where there is a will, there is indubitably a way. We do tell our students, as much as we can, that the success story of how our school was founded could have been elusive today if the founders’ passion had not been ruled be can-do-it-spirit. The moment an individual believes very strongly that he or she cannot achieve a goal, he or she is already a candidate in the examination hall of failure. We try to inspire confidence in our students, making them believe that with God, all things are possible.

 

  1. Love and Care

Love, genuine love, is considered one of the most appealing values needed to keep our world moving. Relationship thrives on the canvas of Love. When there is love, peace reigns. The crisis of love has sparked off a number of crises in our society. In view of the foregoing, we, at Rosebud School, see much sense in propagating the value of love as well as making love spread among our students. We educate them so that they can be seen as loving God when they love their neighbours. We also tell them that all killings, maimings and other inhuman acts manifesting in our society are never borne out of love. To us, being one’s brother’s keeper is a virtue that all humans need to possess that all may care for one another.
