The Lagos State Government, through the Ministry of Education, has confirmed Monday, April 11, 2016 as the resumption date for the Third Term academic session in public schools in the State.
In a statement released today by the Ministry, Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Dr. Idiat Oluranti Adebule, emphasised that it became necessary to clarify the resumption date based on recent rumour and insinuations that the resumption date has been postponed.
Mrs. Adebule, who supervises the activities of the Ministry, said the state government recognizes the pressure associated with the current fuel scarcity and its attendant consequences, but maintained that higher premium must be placed on the development of school children who are the leaders of tomorrow.
While appealing to parents and guardians to look beyond the present situation and encourage their wards to face their studies with renewed vigour, she noted that the call for a shift in the resumption date will only distort the academic calendar for the year.
The Deputy Governor therefore urged proprietors of Private Schools, Head Teachers/ Principals of public schools to do everything humanly possible to see that the school calendar runs uninterrupted in the State
