Schools ready to face any situation

ALL precautions have been taken to ensure the smooth running of schools even if coronavirus cases are found among students and teachers, it has been announced.

Education Minister Dr Majid Al Nuaimi said schools, public and private, will not be shut down completely with teachers and the administration staff having been trained in different case scenarios including cases requiring immediate isolation or quarantining a facility.

He also revealed that 146,000 government school students and 80,000 private school students would start the new 2021-2022 academic year on Tuesday.

Around 75,000 students have registered to attend in-person classes, and this number was expected to reach 80,000 in the next few days, the minister added.

Addressing a Press conference at the ministry’s complex in Isa Town yesterday, Dr Al Nuaimi said that drills on the detection of cases, health and hygiene measures and practices, and trial check-ups were tested in schools as faculty members returned after the summer vacation yesterday.

The minister, who himself inspected several schools to check their preparedness, said the schools were ready and would implement all the protocols set by the National Taskforce for Combating the Coronavirus (Covid-19).
