Minister of Education, Youth and Information Fayval Williams says she is satisfied with the measures put in place at schools to facilitate face-to-face classes.
“I’m pleased with the care that I see. They have been careful. You can see where they have been planning for this moment of face-to-face [classes] and it gives confidence that students who are on the compounds physically are here safely,” she noted.
Williams was speaking after a tour of three schools in the Corporate Area on Tuesday to observe their adherence to the coronavirus (COVID-19) protocols.
The institutions visited were Penwood High, Seaward Primary and Junior High, and Haile Sellasie High schools.
They are among 125 institutions that were approved for the resumption of face-to-face classes for the second term of the 2020-2021 academic year, which began on Monday.
This follows the favourable completion of a pilot last November, which involved 17 schools.
