Following the new academic calendar, form ones are to report to their various schools this term as from 2nd of August till the stipulated time.
Most candidates are eagerly waiting to join secondary schools so as to have a taste of what high school life is about. On the other hand parents are running up and down to ensure that they comply to their duties as parents and because of this they are likely to face alot of challenges during the whole process of admission.
The challenges parents are like to face includes;
1.Long queues in banks as many are expected to be depositing school fees on this day.
2.Congestion at bus stops as most parents are likely to turn up and as a result of reduced carrying capacity for psvs.
3.Abnormal rise in bus fare as passengers are likely to exceed available vehicles (psvs) on this day.
4.Traffic jams on many roads that is likely to delay many parents on the way.
5.Increase on the cost of stationary e.g ream papers, pace setters among other essentials required.
6.Missing of admission opportunity for the students who might report later since most schools are likely to be congested.
7.long and tiresome journey for those students and parents travelling over long distances.
8.Police interference for those who might be caught up by curfew hours as well as those who do not wear face masks properly.
In most cases some of secondary schools had resorted to makeshift classrooms and dormitories to accommodate the huge number of students.
10. In some schools, students queue for long to take a bath or relieve themselves in the few toilets available at the schools.
11.The selection and subsequently placement of form one students has been chaotic as children are getting calling letters from secondary schools they do not know and also they had not selected.
