BUKEDEA: SATURDAY, JANUARY 1, 2022
As the nation races towards resumption of the academic calendar, Bukedea Comprehensive Secondary School is readying to open in style.
Bukedea comprehensive school, amixed boarding secondary school whose pre-Covid-19 enrolment was over 500 learners.
Martin Eweru, the school’s deputy head teacher said that they have secured adequate facilities to ensure observation of all standard operating procedures.
“We have enough hand washing facilities, sanitizers, spacious dormitories and single seater arrangements at all classes and there is no need to worry,” Eweru assured parents and learners.
He added all staff both teaching and none-teaching have been vaccinated against the deadly covid-19 virus, all persons entering school will be subjected to a temperature check and students will be checked on a daily basis, as a way to guarantee safety.
Eweru explained that those who will present any signs of the virus shall be handled by the school doctors and nurses, who will in-turn be in position to advise on the next step.
However the deputy head teacher expressed worry that during the long stay away from school, many children may have been exposed to bad habits such as alcoholism, narcotics and drug abuse and may cause headache while back in school.
He urged cooperation from the parents so that the children are jointly managed by them and the school administration.
