27 June, 2021, 11:14 am
The Ministry of Education after consultation with heads of school has decided to make arrangements to continue providing students with learning resources.
In a statement, the ministry indicated it would continue to make available supplementary learning resources for students while schools nationwide remained closed until further notice.
The ministry stated from Monday next week, teachers would be able to access school resources to prepare weekly home study packages for their students based on their classroom coverage.
It stated those who had resources available at home should continue to work from home.
“The weekly home study packages will contain relevant learning materials including activity sheets for students in years 1 to 13,” the ministry stated.
The ministry also encouraged teachers to use existing communication platforms to send these learning materials to their students.
Parents were advised to assist their children in accessing the weekly home study packages.
“Parents who do not have access to online communication platforms may collect printed weekly home study packages from schools on Monday.”
The ministry stated the completed activities should be returned before the next batch was accessed.
It stated this would enable students to receive feedback from their teachers and arrangements.
“A number of teachers have continued to assist their students through various platforms, such as recorded video lessons, live teaching through social media and worksheets disseminated through online communication platforms.
“It is mandatory for all heads of school and teachers to follow the COVID-19 safety protocols when accessing school-based resources.
Interested teachers are advised to contact their heads of school to create small bubbles that fall within the COVID-19 safety protocols.”
