Students not available for religious activities – NAPO (Educational Minister) declares.

With schools set to open, some new directives from the Ministry of Education have been established. The Educational Minister, Mathew Opoku Prempeh has revealed that when schools reopen, students wouldn’t be available for religious activities.

Speaking at a press briefing on Tuesday, June, 2, 2020, the Educational Minister explained that they do not want too many interactions especially as the religious activities and other gatherings could lay the grounds for infections and create room for easy tracing in case of a spike among students.

“When schools reopen, they will not be available for religious activities. It is simple, we do not want too many interactions so that [should the unexpected happen], we can trace who might have come to the school with virus. So we want to keep it that only students and their lecturers are in school.

Educational Minister talks of Exams reforms amidst suspension of visits and religious activities.

Additionally, he added that when the junior and senior schools reopen, there will be no visitors allowed during the period that they are in school. Parents and other family members have therefore been banned from seeing their own children when school reopens.

“When the junior and senior schools reopen, there will be no visitors allowed during the period that they are in school. Parents can no longer go and visit their kids for that period”, the sector intimated.
