The Osun State government yesterday inaugurated the Salvation Army Middle School in Osogbo, the state capital. The school is one of the 100 elementary, 50 middle and 20 high schools being built under the O’School initiative.
Governor Rauf Aregbesola said the inauguration was a reaffirmation that Osun’s education policy is headed for success.
According to him, the Elementary and Middle Schools would each accommodate 900 pupils, while the High School is to accommodate 3,000 pupils.
He said, “We have since been working assiduously to implement the reforms. The inauguration of this school is evidence that all is going as planned with our reform. As part of the reform, we decided to reorganise the school system into Elementary, Middle and High School categories”.
Aregbesola therefore, urged parents to support the government by preparing their wards for the new system and dressing them up in the new uniform.
