Heads of schools cannot force teachers to report to school before June 29th.
According to the Ministry of Education, Heads of Schools must adhere to the Circular on the reopening of schools for Years 12 and 13 students, and not force teachers to report before June 29th.
Minister for Education Rosy Akbar reminds School Heads to exercise discretion where teachers are traveling to maritime schools due to the irregular transportation schedule.
Akbar in a statement says these are challenging times and parental support is essential to ensure children are encouraged to return to school.
Minister Akbar strongly reiterates that no students will be assessed immediately upon their return to school.
Students must be given ample time to settle in considering the current circumstances.
Students are encouraged to continue practicing all safety and hygiene measures in place as they prepare for the journey back to school.
