Date Posted: October 1, 2017 at 6:16 am

Various stakeholders in the education sector have been enjoined to join hands with government in the onerous task of developing education in the state of Osun, for the future of the state to be bright.

This is just as the 1989 set of the Old Students Association of St Charles High School, Osogbo were commended for the rehabilitation of the library complex constructed within the school. Chairman, Osun Education Quality Assurance and Morality Enforcement Agency, Dr Isiaka Ayo Owoade stated these during an unscheduled assessment visit to the school. He said the efforts of the Aregbesola administration in the education sector will yield more positive results if members of the general public join hands in the maintenance of facilities which government has provided.

Dr Owoade, who took time to inspect past and present WAEC results especially that of 2017, said it is gratifying to discover that, majority of the students who sat for the examination came out with flying colours showing great improvements. While calling on teachers to intensify efforts at ensuring that students performance continue to improve, the Chairman called on the teachers to improve on the teacher/students mentorship culture as a means of improving learning.

He however, warned them to be gender sensitive so as not to destroy the motive, while also calling on parents to ensure that their children are fully focused on education and avoid distracting them with other ventures.

Also speaking, Executive Secretary of the Agency, Mr Lawrence Oyeniran who commended the general conduct of the school charged the teachers to keep up the good work in the quest to taking education in Osun to greater heights. In his own remarks, the Principal of the school, Mr Anthony Famoriyo said the creation of the agency was a step in the right direction as it has gone a long way in sanitizing the school system in Osun.
