School Resumption: State Authority Announces Date and Modalities

The Ebonyi State government through its commissioner for Education, has announced the reopening of schools in the state from October 5, 2020.

The Commissioner for Education, Onyebuchi Chima revealed this on Thursday after the state’s executive council meeting in the state capital of Abakaliki

Mr Chima, while speaking with newsmen at the end of the state’s Executive Council meeting in Abakaliki, remarked that the executive council meeting was a good one for the state ministry of education, as it outlined and ratified the memo from the ministry for the re-opening of schools.

“The resumption will be for the primary, secondary and tertiary levels of education as academic activities will be ‘staggered’ according to the ministry’s recommendation.”

“This means that there will be two sections for schools: morning and afternoon sessions with the morning sessions starting from 8 .a.m to 12 p.m., while the afternoon will start from 12.15 p.m. to 4.p.m.”

“The junior primary section: 1–3 and junior secondary 1-3 classes will have their sessions in the morning, while the senior primary: 4–6 and senior secondary 1-3 classes will run in the afternoon session.”

Thus, the resumption will be for the primary, secondary and tertiary levels of education as academic activities will be ‘staggered’ according to the recommendation by the ministry of education.

Accordingly, the junior primary section 1-3 and junior secondary 1-3 classes will have their classes in the morning, while the senior primary section 4-6 and senior secondary 1-3 classes will run in the afternoon.

The Commissioner said that the first two to three weeks of academic resumption will be used to finish up the 3rd term, to enable students to conclude the remaining session of the 2019/2020 academic calendar.

Ultimately, a mini-promotional examination will be conducted to enable schools to move fully into the 2020/2021 academic session.
