The Lagos State Government has scheduled a one-week mid-term break for the state’s private and public nursery, primary, and secondary schools.
Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, Director General of the Office of Education Quality Assurance (OEQA), announced this in a statement.
The break is intended to improve instructors’ ability to use modern teaching strategies in order to face the challenges provided by the coronavirus pandemic.
Schools will reopen for regular courses on Monday, November 8, “in accordance with the state government’s 2021/2022 harmonised school calendar.”
Mrs Seriki-Ayeni urged the state’s school administrators and leaders to strictly follow the government’s instructions for a trouble-free mid-term break.
“They should also ensure that teachers are professionally enriched to improve staff performance, effectiveness, and efficiency, as training and retraining are critical to professional development in the twenty-first century,” she added.
“They should take advantage of the opportunity to further implement COVID-19 safety and precautionary practices as stipulated by the state government for the health and safety of kids.”
