Delta State Commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education, Mr. Patrick Ukah, has said that the idea behind the establishment and rehabilitation of model schools in the state is aimed at upscaling standards of education and make schools more conducive for learning as it is in Unity Colleges across the country.

Mr. Ukah stated this during his inspection visit to model schools in Ughelli South, Ughelli North and Warri South Local Government Areas to ascertain the level of work on those undergoing rehabilitation as well evaluate the facilities in the model schools.

He said that the Okowa administration’s commitment to the education sector, especially priority to the model schools, is designed as a key strategic measure to enable Delta schools compete favourably with International standards, adding that the reconstruction work in some of the schools that needed to be revamped followed an early assessment of the conditions of the schools.

The Basic and Secondary Education Commissioner emphasized that the initiative to give the schools a face lift would help to boost the population of students in such schools and called on the contractors handling the rehabilitation works to deliver the projects in record time.

He said that the hostels and dinning halls that were being reactivated in some of the schools would provide accommodation for the students, stressing that boarding schools always provide the children opportunity to be morally disciplined.

Some of the schools inspected included Girls Model Secondary School, Evwreni, Unity Model School, Agbarho, Nana College and Hussey College, both in Warri, among others.
