GEORGETOWN – Teachers and members of the auxiliary staff have been told to report to school on Monday in order to prepare for revision classes and exams in keeping with the Public Health protocols.

The Ministry said students sitting upcoming examinations are required to attend school from June 15 and thereafter every other day as part of preparation for the sitting of their exams.

According to the Ministry, only students preparing for those exams are required to attend school.

News Source Guyana, quoted a senior Education official as saying that principals will decide how classes will be conducted and on what specific days, with classes being held no more than three days per week and a total of four hours each day.

The official said it is not mandatory for students to attend the classes since they are for revision purposes. It was pointed out that the important days would be the days of the actual examinations, for which they must be present.

Under the order, no more than 15 students will be permitted to be seated in a classroom at any one time and they must be seated at least six feet apart.

In keeping with the efforts to fight the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), all schools must have stations for handwashing, with a regular supply of soap and running water and an area designated as a waiting area for when students arrive at school and before they enter the examination rooms.

In addition, floor markings will be put in place to ensure students are always six feet apart. The invigilators will have to place the exam papers on the desks in the classrooms before the students arrive, to ensure distancing between the students and the invigilators. (CMC)
