“They should also ensure that the teachers are professionally enriched to enhance improved staff performance, effectiveness and efficiency as training and retraining is key to professional development in the 21st century.

“They should use the opportunity to further put in place COVID-19 safety and precautionary protocols as prescribed by the state government for students’ wellness.”Mrs Seriki-Ayeni stressed.
