The COVID 19 pandemic is slowly coming to an end. Ogun State Government has reacted to this by stating that Monday, September 21 is the day for school reopening.
The Ogun State Government has made a move for the reopening of schools.
The resumption time ⌚ according to the directives of the Government for primary and secondary schools will have to be adjusted.
The classes from Primary 1 to Primary three will be in session for 3 hours, starting from 8:00am to 11:00am, while the classes from Primary 4 above will have 3 hours also, from 12:00pm to 3:00pm.
The colleges and tertiary institutions will still be allowed to be in session for their normal duration.
The Governor also stated that the early child care ages, from the age of 3 to the age of 5 will not be allowed to resume.
Their resumption shall be discussed and will most likely happen in the next phase of school reopening
The same time scheme as that for Primary Schools applies to Secondary schools as well.
The Junior Secondary students take the place of the pupils from Primary 1 to 3, while the Senior Secondary students take the latter.
Schools of Vocation and Technical schools will be allowed to resume fully.
It is mandatory to observe the necessary COVID 19 protocols.
Tertiary institutions will be allowed to resume from September 21, although their date of resumption will be determined by their respective administrative bodies.
The Ogun State Government has also instructed that all pupils and students be given automatic promotion to the next class, including the Primary 6 pupils who intend continuing in secondary school.
Those who aspire placement in State-owned Boarding Schools will sit the Common Entrance Examination on September 12.
The JSS3 students who have been promoted however are still mandated to sit for their Basic Education Certificate Examination in October 2020.
