Information regarding availability of seats may be obtained by calling the School Office and, if seats are available, arrangements for an admission test date will be set. Except for Playgroup and Lower Shishu, admission into other classes depend upon the availability of seats. A printed notice regarding annual admission procedures will be posted on our Notice Board as well as included in our School Newsletter and Website.
New students in all classes will be required to pass an admission test and/or interview before admission. Students are admitted and placed in their proper grade and language medium with consideration of the following: age, achievement level, language proficiency, and grade level at previous school, emotional and physical maturity. We give preference to some such as in-house transfers, actual siblings of current students, etc.
A. G. Church School/Dhaka
There are approximately 180 days in a School Year. A child is most likely to make maximum education progress if he/she attends as regularly as possible. As regular attendance is very important, only reasons of illness of student, accident or death of a family member will be considered as excused. When the child returns to school after being absent, the Class Teacher must be shown in writing the reason for the absence signed by a parent in the section for absence provided in the School Diary, whether the leave is excused or unexcused. When a guardian knows of an upcoming absence, an application must be submitted to the school authority one-week in advance of the time of absence. Approval for such leave is at the school’s discretion. Failure to do so results in a failing grade. Repeated unexcused absence may result in detention and / or cancellation of seat.
As the school is using Digital System for Attendance so the computer record is the final.
In the event of an excused absence, a student will be given a reasonable amount of time to make up the work missed. An absence does not excuse the student from work or tests. It is the responsibility of the student to make arrangements with the teacher(s) for make-up work; otherwise, a failing grade will be recorded. In the case of semester test, no make -up tests will be allowed for absences excused or unexcused. Excessive absence may indicate the need for a child to repeat a grade level.
The Assemblies of God Church School /Dhaka was established and is operated to provide quality education for the children of all communities, irrespective of caste or religion, recognizing and maintaining that the guiding principle of the government, character and discipline of the school shall be based on Christian teaching.
Our motto is, “Train up a child in the way he/she should go; and when he/she is old, he/she will not depart from it”. (King Solomon, Bible, Proverbs 22:6).
