The Lagos State Government, on Monday, granted permission to JSS 3 and SSS 3 students of Chrisland High School in Opebi to write their final examinations.

The state Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo, who disclosed this in a statement, however, said the school will remain shut till all judicial processes are concluded.

“The temporary permission to allow the terminal classes comprising JSS3 and SS3 students access to the school was granted to enable them to participate in their terminal examinations.
