Ministry: All set for SEA students to return to schools

More than 19,000 SEA stu­dents will re­turn to their pri­ma­ry schools to con­tin­ue prepa­ra­tions for the 2020 SEA ex­am­i­na­tion, sched­uled for Au­gust 20, 2020

The Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion is seek­ing to as­sure teach­ers, par­ents and stu­dents that pri­ma­ry schools are ready for the re­open­ing for SEA stu­dents on Mon­day.

More than 19,000 SEA stu­dents will re­turn to their pri­ma­ry schools to con­tin­ue prepa­ra­tions for the 2020 SEA ex­am­i­na­tion, sched­uled for Au­gust 20, 2020.

The Min­istry said in a state­ment that it has, over the past few weeks, been dis­trib­ut­ing clean­ing sup­plies to all pri­ma­ry schools to en­sure the class­rooms are thor­ough­ly cleaned and sani­tised.

Ad­di­tion­al­ly, it said that liq­uid soap and hand sani­tis­er are avail­able for the stu­dents to utilise.

“Based on Min­istry of Health rec­om­men­da­tions, prin­ci­pals have re­or­gan­ised the class­rooms to fa­cil­i­tate the six feet phys­i­cal dis­tanc­ing re­quire­ment. The Min­istry will con­tin­ue to clean and sani­tise schools to en­sure the safe­ty of stu­dents,” the state­ment added.

The Min­istry said that guide­lines for the Re­open­ing of Schools were de­vel­oped in con­sul­ta­tion with the Min­istry of Health and were is­sued to pri­ma­ry school prin­ci­pals.

It said a sep­a­rate doc­u­ment, out­lin­ing the mea­sures for the new Ear­ly Child­hood Care and Ed­u­ca­tion (EC­CE) sec­tor would be dis­sem­i­nat­ed short­ly.

Mean­while, the Min­istry said it re­mains in con­stant di­a­logue with the Chief Med­ical Of­fi­cer and, by ex­ten­sion, the Min­istry of Health to en­sure that the pro­to­cols con­tin­ue to be im­ple­ment­ed in schools. Con­se­quent­ly, as the na­tion­al re­sponse to COVID-19 evolves, it said the guide­lines will be amend­ed to re­flect cur­rent mea­sures to main­tain the health and safe­ty of the na­tion’s stu­dents and staff.
