that's the label for those schools (primary) that were government owned and obviously less endowed than a good count of the private ones by percentage!
so i attended some of these (more than one) way back... and i just kinda recall how we used to close each day!
a talking-drum sounds (that's the name?) or a bell is rang and we are assembled in a 2pm sun and asked do 'arms-forward-stretch'.... 'stand-at-ease'... then all sorts or instructions are given out!
one hardly understands some of the things that are said anyway... but you are not just left to go... "about-turn, front-turn, right-turn, left-turn, about-turn.... DISMISS..."
and then follows a crude chorus rendered in Ga: "obishie kpe mle...dismiss...obishie kpe mle...dismiss!"...
and you should come and see us doing the marathon only to stop and do the rest of the journey by walk...
