Ongoing school talks


Share post:



The Ministry of Education is still working feverishly to come up with a roadmap that will lead to the resumption of face-to-face classes at schools.

And with little more than a month to go before the beginning of the next school term, there remains several points of discussion still on the table.

Issues such as how lunch period will be handled, whether the students will all be required to wear masks at all times, the vaccination levels of staff, how physical education classes would be conducted and even if school will be blended or not, are all still being hashed out.

Chief Education Officer Dr Ramona Archer-Bradshaw told the DAILY NATION that discussions were ongoing and would not speculate on which form school would take going forward.

“We’ve been engaging the union and other stakeholders with regard to the face-to-face reopening of school. The discussions are ongoing . . . but remember I cannot say exactly when we would begin face-to-face classes, all of that is contingent on the Ministry of Health and Wellness and their advice on whether it is safe to reopen schools.
