We thank Almight Allah for bringing us this far,we are going toward the end of the term.We thank you all for your understanding , we pray that Almight Allah will continue to support your unrelenting efforts in the upbringing of your wards.
Transportation: in the past, we have had problems with our transportation for more than a year. We thought the problem will end , instead, the school keep recording losses on transportation which when compare to the previous term is more than N400, 000.
The management invited the PTA Chairman for a meeting and the suggestions made at the meeting include:
- Converting the day students to boarding
- Contracting transportation out to another company
- Survey from other schools.
- Parents bringing their ward(s)
- Increase the transportation fare based on distance
During the holiday, we did a survey on other schools on how they manage and run their transport system, we also used the school bus to run the entire route where the students live with the proprietor to calculate the km/ph covered and to see the condition of the road. During that visit, we discovered that the distance covered to pick and drop some student is much and the roads are very bad.
After the visitation, the parents involved were invited with the PTA Chairman in attendance for the way forward. The following were the suggestions and observations made by the parents.
- Repairing and disposing the two vehicles to get good one.
- Using some of the staff who knows how to drive to test run.
- Increase transport fare based on distance.
It was also suggested that we should use some staff who knows how to drive to pilot the affair of the school buses. The proprietor sent three staff to driving school to perfect their driving. The proprietor’s driver has also been helping with driving of the school buses.
We have decided to do away with transportation. We urge the parents to register their ward(s) for centralized bus system in the town, its very reliable and for the security reasons; they do biometric, there is a means of identification, assistant driver, working camera in the bus, tracking system and the registration is online. They have three buses for different route respectively, Ganaja, Felele and Zango route.
