The students sitting for WAEC examinations resume on Monday the 20th of March, but only as day students.

On Sunday the 19th of March, students who showed up to resume school, as instructed by a text message from the school authorities, were turned back.

This is clearly in line with the Ministry of Health's directive that the school remain closed till further notice, until it is deemed hygienic enough for students.

But on Monday, students who will be writing certificate examinations, JSS 3 and SSS 3 students resumed school today, but only as day students.

According to our sources, these classes had to resume because they still had a lot to cover before their examinations.

Just to recap what's been up.

In January, over 1000 cases were reported at the school's sickbay of students with diarrhoea symptoms. Slow reaction from the school administration eventually led to the death of two students and the hospitalisation of many others. All the details are here.

The Ministry of Health ordered the immediate closure of the school till further notice.
