Summer School

Oghenefego Ofili

Children of these days are trying. They are in school almost the whole year. Third term holiday used to be the longest holiday season, and one that most kids looked forward to in those days. You know why? It was the period when you will sleep the longest because you did not have to rush to school early; and a period to stay awake till late at night for same reason – no school tomorrow.

I am afraid this has changed. Privately owned schools now organize what they call ‘Summer School’. The idea is for children to engage more in extracurricular activities, learn new skills, express their creative sides and do a lot of fun things. At least that was what I thought until I engaged some parents in a chat.

It started one day when I overheard a parent complaining that her kids were constituting a nuisance and she could not wait for summer school to begin. When I asked her why, she said it will give her back her peace and quiet. Although I appreciate your love for sanity in your space, it was quite painful to sense that some kids are been shipped away to summer school so parents can have less of their ‘wahala’.

In those days, parents planned family adventures for this holiday. They went for camp meetings, visited their villages, went sightseeing, went to the farm, it was the opportunity some kids had to learn their father’s trade.  It was a bonding opportunity.

Little wonder children in those days grew up multi-talented, skilled and had some level of wisdom. I am not sure we can say same for this generation of kiddos.
