The Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion, Her­itage and Arts wishes to in­form all School Heads, Man­age­ment and Staff that all teach­ers are to re­port to school from 29 June 2020. The Min­istry has is­sued MEHA Cir­cu­lar 9/2020 on the re­open­ing of schools for Year 12 and 13 stu­dents fol­low­ing the an­nounce­ment by the Prime Min­is­ter.

It is manda­tory for Heads of Schools to ad­here to the cir­cu­lar and not force teach­ers to re­port be­fore 29 June.

Min­is­ter for Ed­u­ca­tion Rosy Ak­bar re­minds school heads to ex­er­cise dis­cre­tion where teach­ers are trav­el­ling to mar­itime schools due to ir­reg­u­lar trans­porta­tion sched­ules.

Heads of schools are re­minded to abide by MEHA Cir­cu­lar 9/2020 and to pre­pare their schools to welcome stu­dents.

The Min­istry has re­aligned the cur­ricu­lum and teach­ers are man­dated to sim­plify their teach­ing and learn­ing ma­te­ri­als for the de­liv­ery of lessons.

Ms Ak­bar strongly re­it­er­ates that stu­dents will not be as­sessed im­me­di­ately upon their re­turn to school.

All heads of schools and teach­ers must en­sure that the work­sheets were only sup­ple­men­tary re­sources and no child must be de­manded upon re­turn to pro­duce com­pleted work­sheets.
