Sport

TAICO focuses on physical fitness for all students to create a well-balanced, healthy and enjoyable exercise for non-team players and coaching for school teams. The college houses three-granite floored tennis courts, a Basketball, Badminton and Volleyball court, a Football field, a standard size swimming pool and an exercise room equipped with treadmills, stationary bikes, exercise balls and a large aerobic room equipped with exercise mats, free weights and step-up boxes.

Physical and Health Education (PHE) In the classroom PHE is a requirement for all Junior Secondary School (JSS) students and the focus of the subject is learning through practical experience. Students are prepared for examinations by spending 50% of the time allotted in the classroom and 50% of the time engaged in practical skill development. At Senior Secondary School (SSS) level, PHE is offered as an elective option and the time allotted allows for 40% practical skills development and 60% classroom time. SSS level students taking PHE will be prepared for Cambridge and WAEC examinations.

Boarding

We offer full boarding facilities for the students in an environment that is safe and comfortable with constant supervision by resident House Parents, who are responsible for their day to day living, academic work and personal issues. We have a reputation as a friendly school with a family atmosphere and place a great deal of importance on the Houses being at the centre of school life. The male and female hostels are located in different parts of the school premises with Junior and Senior students having separate quarters for both genders. Each room in the hostel houses up to eight individuals and included in each hostels are the Common Room where there is a television and DVD player, the hobby room for indoor game activities and the reading room. Academic growth is necessary, but we also believe that student health is equally as important. At TAICO, students are fed in the dining room for all meals. The meals form a balanced and healthy diet and are prepared from quality ingredients by well qualified cooks. An array of activities takes place over the weekends. The weekend programme is full and varied and it caters to the interest of the students, including sport activities.
