The Lagos State Government has ordered the reopening of all Chrisland Schools in the state.
Recall that Chrisland schools were shut down on April 18, 2022 by the state government over the controversies and outrage that followed the viral s£x tape of minors who are pupils of the school.
Some pupils from the elite private school located in Victoria Garden City during a recent trip to Dubai to participate in the World School Games between March 10 and 13, 2022 engaged in the immoral act .
Following the incident, the school authorities suspended a female student indefinitely, stating that she was “a major actor” in an “immoral act”.
But in a press statement by the Lagos State Commissioner of Education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo, the state government said the reopening of the school was to ensure other students were not denied access to learning while investigation into the issue continued.
The government said the school’s Parent Teachers Association would be working on scheduled psychosocial support for the students involved in the immoral act.
The statement read, “The Lagos State Ministry of Education has directed that all Chrisland Schools shut for alleged misconduct of some students in Dubai be reopened from Monday, April 25th, 2022.
“The directive follows a review of the ongoing administrative investigation into the incident. Besides, it is to ensure that students are not denied access to learning when the new term begins on Monday 25th April 2022.
“The State Government shut the schools for the safety of students and the staff and to ensure unhindered investigation of the incident.
“The Ministry of Education and other relevant agencies of the State, in conjunction with the school’s Parent Teachers Association, will be working on scheduled psychosocial support for the students.
