Abeokuta (NAN) The Ogun Teaching Service Commission on Wednesday urged teachers in public secondary schools to further improve on their skills, to sustain the academic performance of pupils across the State.
Mr Timothy Adebowale, Full-Time Commissioner 1, Ogun Teaching Service Commission, spoke in Abeokuta while monitoring activities of teachers in some schools.
Adebowale said he discovered in some schools that teachers had formed the habit of teaching pupils without lesson notes, which should serve as guidelines.
“The era of teaching without lesson notes is over; no teacher will be allowed to teach without lesson notes that is up-to-date and well signed by their principals or Head of Departments. This will help improve the academic performances of pupils both in internal and external examinations,” he said.
The commissioner also urged the teachers to ensure that teaching was based solely on the syllabus. Adebowale stressed the need for teachers to make use of structural materials provided by the government in teaching the pupils.
According to him, the process will help them improve on their skills and ability to assimilate. He enjoined teachers to be punctual in school, keep statutory records and discharge their duties as expected.
The commissioner said that the Commission would continue to monitor the activities of the teachers to achieve the best for the sector.
Earlier, the Principal, Adenrele High School (Senior) Ifo, Mr Ebenezer Ogundele, assured that teachers under his supervision would teach in accordance with the teaching guidelines. Ogundele commended the state government for the prompt payment of teachers’ salaries among other welfare packages.
