Schools Reopening: Learners To Take Turns Coming To School

Children will not come to school every weekday when schools reopen in order to decongest classrooms and control the spread of the coronavirus.

This was said by Bulawayo Provincial Education Director (PED), Olicah Kaira while speaking during the ongoing community outreach programme in Bulawayo by the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education to prepare for the reopening of schools.

Kaira also urged parents to assist their children to participate in the ongoing e-learning programmes. She said:

As a province, we are encouraging children to join the e-learning programme through WhatsApp, Telegram and Google Classroom. Learners doing Grade Seven, Form Three and Form Four are encouraged to log into

They are going to find content that has already been loaded to that website which will assist them to do their work while they are at home.

I also want to remind parents that when we return to school, it is not all the children that are going to be in the classroom at the same time. We are going to follow a decongested school attendance.

Children are going to follow alternative days reporting for duty, we are doing so because our classroom space is not adequate for COVID-19 protocols and regulations.

When children remain home while others are at school, we encourage them to engage in radio lessons, television lessons and other online platforms.

The community outreach programme is running under the theme “Community outreach for enhanced inclusivity: Enhancing learner diversity in schools”. The programme is set to run up to 3 September.

The government is yet to announce the date for the reopening of schools but reports suggest the resumption of classes could be imminent.
