COVID-19: PARENTS NOT WILLING TO RELEASE THEIR CHILDREN DESPITE GOVERNMENT DIRECTIVES ON SCHOOL RESUMPTION
The effect of the COVID-19 Pandemic has also hit hard on the education sector.
This perhaps explains why many parents are not willing to bring their Pre Kg and Nursery children to school Monday after government’s directive for the private schools to resume.
The Proprietor of Best Model International Schools, Evangelist Peter Ighoakpokrire who confirmed this added that the parents see payment of fees for the 1st term as a waste of hard earned funds during this period of COVID-19.
Evangelist Ighakprokrire however added that the parents released their wards for the primary and other low cadre sections.
The Proprietor explained that COVID-19 measures have been put in place in response to governments directives.
The children were on break and having their launch as at the time of this report.
Some of the parents were however not forthcoming to speak on the development.
At Delta Careers College, Warri, all COVID-19 protocols were in place as the Pre Kg, Kindergarten and Nursery leaders resumed.
In some of the classrooms, all signs for teaching and learning were in place even as the teachers guided the children to read and write.
The children also had their facemasks on.
Director, Delta Careers College, Warri, Emmanuel Ukeredi emphasized the importance of COVID-19 in the administration of the school since the outbreak of the virus.
The first term of the 2020/2021 academic session ends on the 18th of December this year with all the schools expected to complete the terms scheme of work and 1st term examination.
