All schools in Lagos are expected to resume on Monday, 13th September 2021.

But students of Model Colleges and Upgraded Schools will resume in batches from Sunday, 19th September 2021.

Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo,
Lagos State Commissioner for Education

Announcing the resumption guidelines for the Y2021/2022 academic session for public and private schools in the State on Monday, the Lagos State Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo, said, “Boarders in Model Colleges and Upgraded Schools, as well as SS2 students seeking placement into SS3 class, are expected to resume on Sunday 19th September 2021. The revision for the classes will run from 20th to 26th September while promotion examination to SS3 class will start from 27th September to 8th October 2021.”

Mrs. Adefisayo who made this announcement in a statement released by the Ministry of Education, said that the newly admitted JS1 students into Model Colleges and Upgraded Schools are to resume on Saturday, 2nd October 2021 for a one-week orientation programme to intimate them on the secondary school structure and modalities.

She said that that other returning students in JS2, JS3, SS1 and the newly transited SS2 in the various Model Colleges and Upgraded Schools would resume on Saturday, 9th October 2021, while classes for the students will commence on Monday, 11th October 2021.

The commissioner explained that the adoption of staggered resumption for Model Colleges and Upgraded Schools was due to the presence of Y2020/2021 SS3 students currently writing the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) scheduled to end on 6th October 2021, adding that another reason is that the schools cannot accommodate seven sets at once in the boarding system.

Adefisayo, therefore, appealed to parents to abide by the new development for a smooth academic session, just as she implored the students to be more diligent and devote more time to their studies.
