Principals, others urged to set up school-based management committees
• Ukah lauds Ughelli College alumni
Principals and other heads of public schools in Delta State have been charged to set up school-based management committees.This is to enable stakeholders in the various communities where schools are located to take part in issues affecting the smooth running of such institutions.
Commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education, Chief Patrick Ukah, gave the charge while monitoring resumption of schools and level of compliance of the ‘Welcome Back Test’ for students in Delta Central and Delta South senatorial districts.
According to a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the ministry, Mr. Oghenero Irovwuje, “Chief Ukah’s directive on the essence of setting up the school-based management committee is to bring together all stakeholders in the various communities where the schools are located to brainstorm on issues that affect the smooth running of the schools in their localities.”
At Government College, Ughelli, the commissioner commended the old students of the school for their contribution to the school’s development.He stressed the need for alumni associations to be stakeholders in their alma mater, as this would go a long way in supporting the schools.
The commissioner, who also visited Hussey College, Nana Model College, Delta Secondary School and Nana Primary School, all in Warri, also expressed satisfaction with the response he got.
“The Welcome Back Test programme for the students would be sustained, as it had eliminated the apathy of students towards resumption,” he stated.
Chief Ukah equally inspected ongoing construction works at Emore Secondary School, Oleh; Otu-Jeremi Model School, Otu-Jeremi; and Army Day Secondary School, Effurun, where he called on the contractors handling the projects to speed up work to enable the schools start using the facilities in good time.He, however, commended the principals and heads of the various schools visited for a job well done and assured them of the ministry’s support at all times.
