The Lagos chapter of the National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools, has announced that all senior secondary school students in graduating classes will resume on August 3.
In a press briefing, Friday, the Lagos NAPPS President, Mr. Amusa Olawale, explained that there was a plan to ensure the conduct of the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination in September.
He said, “In the last meeting the South-West governors had with the commissioners for education, they are still working on how WASSCE would be conducted in September, because if these pupils don’t sit the exam, the 2020/2021 session will be seriously affected.
He noted that the Lagos State Ministry of Education had given them permission to resume as long as the necessary health requirements were met.
“We had a meeting with the Director General, Quality Assurance, Lagos State Ministry of Education and we shall be resuming on August 3. We have been given clearance for reopening of schools but if a school does not have the requirements, they may not be allowed to resume. For this reason, we also set up NAPPS quality assurance committee to go round and ensure our members meet up with these requirements,” he explained.Follow us on social media
