Ekiti State Government on Wednesday warned head teachers and managements of public schools in the state against filthy environment characterised by overgrown weeds and bushes.
Akinwumi disclosed that the government on his part had released funds to take care of the environment earlier before the resumption of schools.
The SUBEB boss expressed satisfaction with the level of attendance by both teachers and pupils in most of the schools visited.
He described the turn-out in the schools on the first day of the term as highly encouraging.
Akinwumi charged the teachers to be role models to their students and stressed the need for them to instill discipline and orderliness in them.
“Apart from providing quality education for the pupils, teachers should also serve as role models and ensuring discipline and
orderliness among their pupils,” he said.
The SUBEB Chairman, while interacting with students and teachers in St. Fidelis Nursery and Primary School, Odo-Ado, promised that monitoring of schools would continue throughout the term to guarantee quality assurance.
