300 Level Class Page Dissolved As SHIM UCH Freshers Go On Break

It started in the early  hours of the day, around 7:36am when the previous day birthday celebrant (Ganiyu  Olamide) picture  on the group page was changed.  Lovers of the celebrants reacted and the whole  shenanigans  started on the last day of the semester. According  to a class member, he was expecting  to see messages  like farewell, journey mercy, love you, missing you already, my kiss kiss, my uncrushable candy and crush able strawberry but felt so sad reading messages  full of curses and abuses.  After so many appalling messages, one of the administrator removed everyone on the class page and shut it down.  What is the reaction of the class Governor, Deputy Governor, Class monitor, and other Elder statemen?????

Writing One Paper Is Not The Board Standard, so students should prepare for two papers per day -Pelumi Oyelami

Mr Oyelami when meeting with  the members of the  Press club, advised the students  to go and read for their examinations  and stop  being  lazy.

Students are here to read irrespective  of the arrangement  of the timetable, they should  go and read,  come to  the examination  centre and pass.

Writing two papers per day is a form  of training, writing  one paper is not the standard  with the board,so students should prepare  for two.

When the board releases their timetable, the school does not complain,  and the students  read their books, face the exam and they pass so why will they be forming  lazy in the school.  We will  maintain  the appropriate  standard  in this school.

Notwithstanding  steps has been  taking on the correction  of the examination  timetable of 200level students. It is with the Head of school to decide,i have done my part as the Academic  affair  Officer.
