You are currently viewing OGUN STATE SCHOOL RESUMPTION


The Ogun state government recently announced that all schools in the state are to reopen on September 21.

However, reopening of schools isn’t just the issue of attraction here, as the government also gave a directive asking all schools to automatically promote students to the next class.

This means that all students including primary 6 pupils are automatically in jss1 of public schools as well as other levels in the state come September 21.

This however, doesn’t affect the Early Child care Development and Education classes of ages 3-5 years, who will be part of the next phase of schools’ reopening.

This was disclosed by Governor Dapo Abiodun’s Chief Press Secretary in, Kunle Somorin, in a statement he issued.

He announced also that this next phase would include all classes in primary and secondary schools, Technical and Vocational colleges as well as Tertiary institutions.

The statement also directed that all schools both public and private are to adhere strictly to the Covid 19 guidelines.

Now while this might be a good news for students who will see this automatic promotion as a serious escape from the enormity of their third term examinations otherwise known as promotional examination, it’s important for us to also know that there may be subsequent cases of failures in high numbers particular in Ogun state since there’ll definitely be students who’ll be starting a fresh class even though they are yet to totally grasp the essentials from their previous classes.

This means the Ogun state Ministry of Education and indeed all teachers in the state would have to apply special skills in most cases and prepare to be even more patient than before if they must ensure they teach and carry every student along.

Regardless of this fear however, we can confidently say that while the coronavirus pandemic has been a monster to a lot if not all sectors, it has helped save those students of Ogun state who before now nursed the fear of repeating their respective classes.
