Private secondary school in Ondo State under fire for for printing names of students owing 5k in the school magazine
Twitter user, Bhadmus Hakeem @Bhadoosky has called out a private secondary school based in Ondo State for allegedly printing the names of final year students who didn’t contribute towards the purchase of a television set in the school’s send-forth magazine as debtors.
Hakeem in his Twitter thread said that the students were required to contribute 5,000 naira towards the purchase of a 32″ television set.
“Yesterday (20/7/2018), a school in Arigidi Akoko, Ondo state, decided to throw over 24 parents and their children into sorrow on a day they should be the most joyous because they didn’t pay N,5000 to buy the school “32 inches TV”.
In defence of the school, Austin Duyi the School Coordinator said
“Hundred per cent of the information” posted by Hakeem is “incorrect.” SSS three students were the ones that organised the project to help their school and leave a legacy. The person, who posted the malicious information about the school, we don’t know.”
When asked if the students were the ones to put the names of indebted students in the magazine, Duyi said,
“In every school magazine, there is a page given to the student to allow themselves to express themselves. They are the ones who wrote everything and said it should be printed. It is, therefore, a surprise to us that someone would pick up only that column of the magazine, which is between 60-70 pages. The person didn’t see the good aspects of the school, only the negative. We are shocked.”
What would you do if you find out your child’s name was printed on his/her school’s send forth magazine as “Debtor” because he/she didn’t pay N5000 to buy the school a parting gift? A school you were paying N104,000 per term for six years? Thread
Yesterday (20/7/2018), a school named “Great Cornerstone International Science College, Arigidi Akoko, Ondo state, decided to throw over 24 parents & their children into sorrow on a day they should be the most joyous because they didn’t pay N5000 to buy the school “32 inches TV”.
On a graduation day, the worst thing you can ever do to a parent and child is make them sad and also document their sadness forever. How do you explain unprofessionalism of this magnitude to people? What were the school management trying to achieve with this stupidity?
Imagine putting this out for the whole world to see. Meanwhile, those that payed part of the money, there names and amount paid were equally written out. How petty can a school owned by learned people be? What history are they trying to make?
Meanwhile, each student paid N15,000 for bespoke suits from the school. A low standard suits produced to make money off parents. Are schools suppose to melt out punishment on parents who work round the clock to pay these humongous amount of money?
And when Mr Austin Duyi (+2347066621124), the school administrator was called to ask why this was done, all he could say was that the students didnt meet up with school request, hence they printed their names out. No apologies. No remorse. No human feelings. No sense whatsoever
At a point during the graduation, the graduating students were given bowls to go get money from the audience. How can you be so mad about making money that you turned kids to Bambiala Children and still shamed them by announcing the amounts each student got from begging?
These Private school owners need to be called to order. Parents can’t be paying huge amount and all you will be doing is insult them with damaging actions. Government needs to start checking the excesses. Imagine a school in Ondo state, not Lagos state paying N104,000 per term.
Without prejudice, some things are wrong and should never be heard. This is beyond me. Maybe I’m overreacting on behalf of the parents or the innocent children. I don’t know. I just believe this is a total nonsense. Parents & children were crying when they should be rejoicing
