Ekiti State Government will from today, Monday, begin teaching of primary school pupils on the state-owned radio station, Ekiti FM 91.5, to minimise the effect of disruption of school calendar by coronavirus outbreak.
This was made known in a statement issued by Chairman of the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Prof. Francisca Aladejana, on Sunday, March 29, 2020.
Aladejana said the 30-minutes daily programme tagged ‘school on air’ is designed to positively engage pupils who are on indefinite break as part of government’s effort to contain the spread of Coronavirus in the state.
She explained that pupils would be taught one of English Language, Yoruba, Basic Science, Civic Education and National Value and Mathematics.
Aladejana stressed that the programme would be interactive, adding that there would be a phone-in segment at the end of each edition which would allow for questions and answers.
She urged parents and guardians to take advantage of the initiative by ensuring that their children actively participate in the programme, which will hold between 3.10pm and 4pm daily.
