The Lagos State government has said that it granted permission to students of Chrisland High School, Opebi, who are in terminal classes to converge for physical learning in the school ahead of their examinations which are due to begin soon.
The State’s Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, disclosed in a statement while giving an update on the case of Miss Whitney Adeniran, who recently collapsed and died during the school inter-house sports competition at the Agege Stadium.
Adefisayo emphasised that “the temporary permission to allow the terminal classes comprising JSS3 and SS3 students access to the school was granted to enable them to prepare and participate in their forthcoming terminal examinations.”
The Commissioner further stated that the school would remain closed until all necessary judicial processes on the case were completed.
She also said arrangements were ongoing for other categories of students of the school to return to class.
She noted that the ministry would continue to engage with Whitney Adeniran’s family.
At the moment, the state government has said it would prosecute the school’s management over alleged negligence that is said to have led to the death of the 12-year-old girl.
A few days ago, the Parents-Teachers’ Association of the school appealed to the Lagos State government to consider their children in terminal classes and reopen the school.
