The Osun State Government has announced the commencement of educational radio and television programmes for primary and
secondary school students of the state.
This initiative tagged “School-on-air” is billed to run Monday to Friday weekly on selected radio and television stations in the state as students continue to stay at home based on the government directive to reduce the spread of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
In a statement by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Jamiu Olawumi, the government stated that the School-on-air education programme is to complement teaching and learning in the state.
Mr Olawumi said school on-air runs on OSBC radio 104.5 FM and Yoruba class on Orisun 89.5 FM and Orisun Television.
He added that the programmes are also available on http://www.osun.csm.ng.
He also urged parents to encourage their children to follow such programmes.
In his words, “It is important to stress that students shall have opportunities to visit the website to further attend the various classes to the session on radio and television to take the assignment, submit assignments and obtain the mark scored instantly.
“Parents and guardians are encouraged to allow their wards access to their mobile phones in logging into their individual school websites already captured into
the cloud system www.osun.csm.ng.”
