The Minister for Education , Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh has outlined in detail, the specific guidelines for the safe reopening of our schools and universities at a press briefing organised by the Ministry of Information on Tuesday, in Accra.
According to the Minister For Education who doubles as Manyhia constituency MP, the reopening is for only final year students to learn and complete their mandatory examinations, and nothing more; with social distancing protocols still in place.
He said on the reoping of schools on June 15, parents and gaurdians will not be allowed to visit their wards in boarding schools during the period. He said students will also not be available for religious and sporting activities, as well as entitled to only four hours of teaching, from 9am to 1pm with 15 minutes break period every 45minutes.
In addition, there will not be the normal assembly periods with borders in SHS’s going for dining in batches in adherance to the social distancing protocols. All students will be provided with 3 resusable set of face masks to protect themselves while in school.
However, all days students would be accepted into boarding houses in Senior High Schools who provide accommodation for students. He also cautioned parents not to send their unwell wards to school when they reopen.
