BATTERY ON ST. SAVIORS SCHOOL STUDENT ODINKARO HELEN
The above refers Sequel to the much and deservedly publicized battery incident involving ODINKARO HELEN by Staff members of St. Saviours School, the Alumni Association of the prestigious School has decided to step into the matter in a bid to contain an avoidable brewing storm.
Battery is a punishable offence under the Criminal and Penal laws of the country, as it is in all countries all over the world. Hence, we saw the expedient need to interfere in such a sensitive situation.
The team of delegates from the Executives of the Alumni Association led by the alumni led by the founder;Esther Ijewere-Kalejaiye, joined by certain concerned members of the Alumni body called for and had a crucial meeting with the School’s management, and also the victim and certain family members in attendance.
We hereby assure every stakeholder and concerned persons that the matter had been adequately dealt with internally and use this medium to convey the deepest apologies and sincere intentions of the Proprietress of the School that such demeaning acts as this WILL NOT repeat itself going forward.
After moments of deliberation, both invited parties came to a compromise, with the following resolutions as a result therefrom, which includes but not limited to:
i. Total abolition of use of cane as disciplinary measure;
ii. Standard guidance/counseling unit to be put in place earnestly;
iii. External line of communication between Pupils, Parents and the School management will be provided earnestly to monitor activities
iv. Proper orientation and provision of checks and corrective measures over acts of Staff members.
We thank everyone involved with this matter, from Officers of the Nigerian Police Force,Ministry of education, to Social media players. We hereby appeal once more that the matter has been amicably settled.
Thank you all for your sincere contributions.
