Lagos State Government has given Chrisland Schools the permission to reopen on Monday, April 25, 2022, following the recent scandal in the school.
This was revealed in a statement by Mrs Folasade Adefisayo, the Commissioner of Education.
“The Lagos State Ministry of Education has directed that all Chrisland Schools shut for alleged misconduct of some students in Dubai be reopened from Monday April 25th, 2022.
“The directive follows a review of the ongoing administrative investigation into the incident. Besides, it is to ensure that students are not denied access to learning when the new term begins on Monday 25th April, 2022.
“The Ministry of Education and other relevant agencies of the State, in conjunction with the school’s Parent Teachers Association, will be working on a scheduled psychosocial support for the students. An extensive assessment of the school’s procedure, especially on external trips and excursions, is being made to identify safety gaps and prevent such incidents.
“Besides, the Ministry will launch the reviewed guidelines/protocols governing private and public schools across the State within the next one month,” she said.
Geeky Nigeria reports that during the school’s trip to Dubai, a video of a 10-year-old student, engaging in immoral acts have made round on social media, and as a result, many Nigerians have criticised the school and parents of the kids for improper upbringing.
When the news got to the Lagos state government, it had announced a closure of all branches of Chrisland School until investigations have been completely.
