Lekki : Two Private Schools Shut Over Covid19 Scare at the Lekki Phase 1 area of Lagos state bluebloodz.com has learned.
The schools are Lagoon Girls’ Secondary School and Standard Bearer School.
According to source at the Office of Education Quality Assurance, Lagos Ministry of Education that the schools were shut after reporting themselves to the ministry after which officials visited them.
“From what I gathered, I do not think it was our office that discovered the schools. “The schools reported themselves. I could not speak with the team lead that went there to give me the vivid picture of what happened when they got there,” the source disclosed.
The Lagoon School is the first project of the Nigerian Association for Women`s Advancement (NAWA), a not-for-profit and non-governmental educational and social trust dedicated to investing in the girl child for the good of the society. The Lagoon School started as a secondary school open only to girls on 15th September, 1995 with only fifty students. It was situated at number 75 Adisa Bashua Street in Surulere, Lagos. They have since moved to their permanent site in Lekki in April, 2001, with four hundred and nineteen students. Right now, The Lagoon School has a population of One thousand and thirty four students.
while the Standard bearer school was said to have been established at a time when the educational system in Nigeria was going through a difficult phase. While there seemed to be a proliferation of schools at the time, quality standards were fast diminishing. Standard Bearers School is located on 4,500 square meters of prime property at the heart of Lekki Phase 1, off Admiralty way, Lagos.
