Other classes, JS 2, JS3, SS1, and the newly transited SS2 in the various institutions are to resume on October 9. Classes will begin on October 11.
Adefisayo said the staggered resumption was due to the presence of 2020/2021 SS3 students writing the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) which will end on the 6th of October.
The commissioner advised pupils to take their education more seriously by devoting more time to studies. She also wished them a successful session.
