Schools in Lagos State will resume the third term academic session as scheduled on Monday 11 April 2016.
The Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Dr. Idiat Oluranti Adebule confirmed the resumption date against the backdrop of speculations that the resumption date has been postponed.
The Ministry of Education, she said, recognised the stress associated with the current fuel scarcity and its attendant consequences.
But higher premium must be placed on the development of the leaders of tomorrow, the statement from the ministry said.
Adebule appealed to parents to look beyond the present situation and encourage the children to face their future with renewed vigour as the call for a shift in the resumption date will only distort the academic calendar.
She urged proprietors of Private Schools, Head Teachers/ Principals of public schools to do everything humanly possible to see that the school calendar runs uninterrupted.
