UNILAG WSS Suspends Payment of Third Term School Fee
The Governing Board of the University of Lagos Women Society School has suspended payment of third term fees by parents.
The board decided to replace the third term’s tuition fee with a monthly fee for e-learning. This was decided after initiating a survey to sample parents’ opinions about the online classes.
The school’s head teacher, Mrs. Abimbola Afolabi, noted in a letter to parents that the third term had not started, and the e-learning programme was optional for pupils.
“The Board has decided that the online teaching service will only be available to pupils whose parents have indicated interest.
Kindly find below proposed fees for the respective class categories: a) Nursery and Kindergarten: N5,000 per month; b) Primary 1-3: N7,000 per month; c) Primary 4: N10,000 per month,” the letter reads.
The move was taken due to the parents’ rejection of demand for payment of third term fees by the school’s head teacher, Mrs Afolabi Abimbola.
In a letter dated May 18, 2020, which was sent to the parents, Mrs. Abimbola had asked parents to make payment of third term fees by June 5, 2020.
The school’s Parents Forum rejected the directive. They complained that the school’s e-learning services were below satisfactory.
The board has suspended the online classes. They, however, noted it would not hold until June 8, 2020 to address the issues raised by parents.
