Flood: Ondo State Public Schools to Proceed on Three Weeks Holiday
A three-week break has been declared for students in public primary and secondary schools in Ondo State.
The State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu directed all public primary and secondary schools submerged by the floods to proceed on three weeks of holiday from Monday, October 14th.
Spokesperson for the state government, Donald Ojogo, stated this in a statement.
According to the commissioner, “the order becomes necessary in order to forestall possible attendant incidents that may likely affect lives of vulnerable pupils in those areas as a result of the floods.
“It is also aimed at protecting valuables from avoidable destruction. All Head Teachers and Principals are to enforce this directive and, in particular, ensure that all perishable educational materials are evacuated while government works out remedial logistics, believing that the floods would recede within the period of the three weeks holiday,” Ojogo said.
