Study at home, PTA chair urges students
By Bukola Olamona.
Parents in Ondo state have been urged to ensure that their children and wards are well taken care of by obeying the laid down rules of government in view of the stay at home directive of the government due to the deadly Co-vid-19.
The Chairman, Parent Teacher Association of Nigeria (PTA), Ondo state chapter, Chief Abimbola Omoloja gave the charge in a telephone interview with The Hope, yesterday.
He called on parents to keep their children and wards indoor and also ensure they study hard at home and abide by the rules of keeping social distance, washing of hands regularly or by using hand sanitizer, covering their noses and many more.
Omoloja called on parents not to let their children be idle or play away their time during the compulsory stay at home order, saying they should be guided to revise what they have studied while in school so as not to forget what they have learnt.
According to him: “They should be studious, and be well prepared because the scourge can subside and they can be called to resume at any time, hence the need to read ahead ,so as to make it easy when they are about to write their exams.
” You know they will have to write their exams immediately they resume, they must be well prepared by studying, ” he said.
Omoloja also berated some report from some quarters that some people were organizing lesson for some students, saying it is a disregard to government’s order and also breaching the law of social distance.
He said parents should not endanger the lives of their children and wards by doing so ,advising them to encourage their children and wards to study at home.
