MCCS Supt. Admonishes 9th, 12th Graders To Take Saturday Classes Seriously

By Decontee M. Wesseh

MONROVIA, October 7 (LINA)–The Superintendent of the Monrovia Consolidated School System (MCSS), Benjamin Jacobs, has  challenged 9th and 12th Graders to take seriously Saturday classes to effectively prepare for the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) examinations.

Jacobs proffered the challenge against the backdrop of the poor performance of students in past WAEC examinations and that the past academic year was characterized by prolonged school closure occasioned by the outbreak of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease in the country.

Addressing the Ministry of Information press briefing at the ministry Tuesday, Jacobs noted that the situation led to the “poor preparation” of the students for the 2015 WAEC exams.

It can be recalled that the Ministry of Education wrote WAEC on June 5, 2015 asking the Council to suspend the WAEC exams for 9th and 12th Grade students until May 2016 because of the abrupt closure of schools during the Ebola outbreak.

He indicated that these unforeseen developments necessitated the decision to introduce Saturday classes to make up for the lost time and better prepare them for the WAEC exams next year. 

He emphasized that it is mandatory for the students to attend their Saturday classes.

Jacobs is at the same time calling on parents and those who serve as guardians to children in the communities to let their children know that they can only succeed in the examinations if they are fully prepared.

Jacobs also stressed the need for school authorities to monitor students daily to keep track of and know those who are delinquent in attending Saturday classes.
