Primary and secondary schools in Ondo State today resumed for the final term of the 2023-2024 academic session.

The schools had been on a three-week holiday since March 29, marking the conclusion of the second term.

Our observations across schools showed that some of them have already commenced cleaning their premises in preparation for the new academic term.

Some of the parents and students who spoke with The Hope expressed readiness for the academic challenges that come with the final term, which determines whether students will advance to the next class or not.

One of the parents, Mrs Kehinde Akinwale, said her children had been preparing for the new term, as one of them would sit for the common entrance examination for primary six students going to secondary schools.

Students, including Dare Joshua, Ibukun Olomololaye, Titilayo Adewusi, and Kemi Oluboye, said they had been preparing harder to ensure they are promoted at the end of the new term.

Information from the State Ministry of Education showed that the new Commissioners for Education, Mr Laolu Akindolie, and principal officers at the ministry will monitor schools across the 18 local government areas.

It has been the tradition of the Ministry to monitor resumption activities across schools in the state.

Also, the State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB, will monitor resumption activities across primary schools in the state, the Director of Information and Public Relations of the Board, Prince Bolu Ajijo, informed The Hope.

He said, “it is mandatory to conduct on-the-spot assessment and monitoring of school resumption at the beginning of the academic session. Usually, the Board, led by the Chairman FTM 1 & 2 & PS & the UBEC Ondo State Coordinator, monitors school resumption across the State.

“There are going to be many teams, each headed by the Chairman, FTM 1 & 2, PS, and some very senior directors. Each team is designated for each LGA.

“In the process, each team, through the leaders, will inspect the school readiness for the new term, time books, and most especially the lesson notes of teachers.”

Meanwhile, the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) started on April 19 and will end on Wednesday, April 24, 2024.
