  • oluwaboluwatife80@gmail.com: This is to inform candidates who are yet to be offered admission in their chosen most preferred course as a result of not meeting the cut-off point for the course, that they can now apply for change of course. They should however ensure that their weighted score is not below the cut-off point of the course they are changing to. The Change of Course form can be accessed online on www.admissions.ui.edu.ng.
    Candidates are also advised to study carefully the subject combination and the O’L requirements for the courses they choose, to avoid being disqualified.It should be noted that consideration for admission will be based on merit. Filling of change of course form will close on Friday, October 11th 2019.

  • DarleyA: 08 OCTOBER 2019

    The attention of the Board of Governors of The International School University of Ibadan has been drawn to several reports on the social media in respect of a female student, Ikhlas Olasubomi Badiru, who has been suspended for two weeks for committing an act of impudence. Having carefully investigated the matter, the Board hereby reports that it was falsely reported that Ikhlas was suspended for ‘wearing hijab on her school uniform’ on several social media platforms.
    We wish to inform parents, stakeholders and the general public that the social media report is a distortion of fact and very far from the truth. The facts of the case are as follows: \

    (i) Ikhlas and some other students wore unauthorized cardigans to school on Thursday, 4 July 2019.

    (ii) They were directed to remove the unauthorized cardigans by

    one of the Vice-Principals of the school.
    (iii) While other students, with humility, complied with the directive of the Vice Principal, Ikhlas blatantly refused to comply.
    (iv) She subsequently defiantly walked out on the Vice-Principal who instructed her and some other students to take off the unauthorized cardigans.
    (v) The Vice-Principal reported the matter to the Management of the School.
    (vi) Ikhlas was invited to make a statement on what transpired. (Please see the Attachment I below).

    (vii) The matter was referred to the Student Disciplinary Investigation Panel (SDIP) to give Ikhlas a fair hearing and the SDIP met on Thursday 4 July 2019 to consider the case.
    (viii) Ikhlas was invited by the SDIP to present her case and she did so. It is instructive to note that at the meeting of the SDIP, the following were established:

    a) Ikhlas refused to obey the instruction of the officer of the school to remove
    the unauthorized cardigan.
    b) She defiantly walked away when the officer instructed her to remove the
    cardigan. The conduct is rather strange and unexpected of any student of
    ISI! Indeed, from available records, this is the first time a student of the
    school will behave in such a manner.
    c) From all facts available to the school, the state of health of Ikhlas on that day
    did not prevent her from respecting the regulations of the school which she
    undertook to obey and be of good conduct as a student of the school.
    (Please see Attachment II) Besides, she did not claim that she was feeling
    unwell in any way while she was addressing the Vice-Principal.

    (ix) This is an established case of misconduct bordering on an act of

    impudence, to which Ikhlas affirmed her liability in her written and oral defense. In line with the rules and regulation of the school, the SDIP recommended that she be suspended for two weeks as a corrective measure and to serve as deterrent to other students.
    (x) The recommendations of the SDIP was considered and subsequently

    approved by the main Student Disciplinary Committee (SDC) on Wednesday, 28 August 2019.
    (xi) Given that the school was on vacation at the time of the approval of

    the recommendation of suspension, its implementation was deferred to the commencement of the resumption of school by the SS3 students.

    The Board of Governors, hereby affirms, for the special attention of all parents, guardians, stakeholders and the general public, that the suspension of Ikhlas has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH HIJAB. Rather, she has been suspended for wearing unauthorised cardigan, refusal to take this off as instructed by a Vice- Principal of the school, while other offenders complied, and defiantly walking out on the Vice-Principal.

    The information on the social media on this matter is grossly misrepresented, misleading and false. As such, it should be disregarded in its entirety.

    Parents, stakeholders and especially the media are advised to confirm information before publishing them on the media. It is equally important that we do the same before accepting, circulating or acting on any information obtained on any media platform.
    The Board of Governors of ISI remains highly grateful to all our esteemed parents, guardians and stakeholders for their continuous support to the school.
    Thank you.

    Board of Governors

  • DarleyA: It is unfortunate that Myschool allowed itself to be used as an agent of distabilization, as this case has shown. What happened to investigative journalism? All this in the name of wanting to trend at all cost. Myschool should please note that awoof dey run belle! Drawing cheap internet traffic over untrue stories may be counterproductive when lawyers from aggrieved parties appear at your doors.
