She tasked parents to ensure due diligence in the upbringing of their children as teachers can only build on the moral foundation laid by the parents or guardians of the students.

The Commissioner noted that apart from providing clothing , shelter, food and access to basic healthcare care,” it is the basic responsibility of parents to encourage their children to have the right attitude towards education and working with other stakeholders to ensure that the school environment is free of crime, alcohol and other peculiar communal vices”.

Responding to the request by the Principal of the School for help of Government in respect of some challenges facing the school which include poor access roads , the unfriendly topography of the school and the proposed change of the name of the school with external examination bodies
to reflect it’s new status as a co-educatoonal institution , the Commissioner said steps would be taken to address the challenges.

Earlier, the Chairman Ekiti State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) Prof. Femi Akinwunmi charged parents to checkmate their wards whenever they notice any form of unruly behaviour in them while also encouraging students to look out for the well being of one another and enschew the trend of “patronising people of questionable character” for money. which he stated was against the ” Ekiti culture”

The SUBEB Boss assured the management of the school that teachers and students furniture would soon be supplied to the school.

In her remarks, the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Education, Dr (Mrs.) Folakemi Olomojobi stated that Ekiti State Government runs a free and compulsory secondary education programme up to senior secondary school including Government expenditure of over N300million yearly on procuring Registration forms for the WAEC Exams.
The Permanent Secretary equally stated that the State Government had invested billions of naira into secondary school infrastructure through the SBMC of each secondary school in the State.

She therefore urged parents to cooperate with the government to ensure that Government’s efforts do not go down the drain.

Olomojobi reminded the Principal that only a minimum percentage of class attendance on the part of the students will qualify them to be registered for the WAEC examinations.

In his remarks,the Principal of the school, Mr Oluwafemi Olubodun
commended the State Government for approving the school as a coeducational school, a situation that has helped the school tremendously and would now necessitate an appropriate name change for the school.
