Lagos State reopens all schools in the State. The Honourable Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo announced this on Thursday. The Boarding Students will resume schools on November 1 while learning will begin on the 2nd.
Moreover, she hopes this will be the last form of disruption in the learning process of the State and Nigeria at large. Recall the country initially experienced (and still experiencing) the COVID-19 pandemic. This led to the closing of schools abruptly and even a delay in the resumption of a new term. However, when it seems we are overcoming the outbreak, schools were reopened.
Nevertheless, another unexpected break occurred last week. The #EndSARS protest that seriously affected traffic in the State. Accordingly, this led to another stay-at-home for the students/pupils and some workers.
She said, “We pray and hope that there will be no more disruptions in the academic calendar. However, the State Government will always regard the safety of pupils/students, parents and all staff as a matter of priority.
“We recommend that when schools resume on Monday, teaching and learning should continue unhindered till the end of the term.”
Furthermore, she encouraged students/pupils to be focused and dedicated to their school work. She said they need this to recover the lost learning period as Lagos reopens schools.
