The Faculty of Education subscribes to the philosophy that man was created in the image of God but as a result of willful disobedience sin has marred his God given attributes and divine likeness. This philosophy recognizes that the object of Education is also the one of redemption “ to restore in man the image of his maker and bring him back to the perfection in which he was created”. Therefore the work of redemption is the work of Education, which involves the development of the whole person physically, mentally, spiritually and socially.
