The mid-term break scheduled to hold on Thursday and Friday in Oyo state schools has been cancelled by the state governor, Seyi Makinde.
According to the governor, the logic behind this decision is the fact that students have been out of school for several days due to various strikes in the state.
This announcement was contained in a circular with reference number, Edu1070/Col.VI/27, dated June 11, 2018, which was signed by the acting permanent secretary, state Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Mr Idowu Adeosun.
He explained that private schools were not affected by the directive.
Teachers and heads of schools are expected to make use of the two days to make up for lost grounds in their lesson plan for the third term of the ongoing 2018/2019 session.
“I am to inform you that in view of the number of days the students of public primary and secondary schools have stayed out of classrooms for the reasons of public holidays and strike actions, the mid-term break for the third term of 2018/2019 academic session is hereby canceled,” the circular read in part.
