REPORT TO SCHOOL ON JUNE 29: MINISTRY
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.
