MASINDI: SUNDAY, 02 JANUARY 2022
Richard Kasaija, the head teacher of Green Valley Secondary School, said many children have been engaged in different activities including cultivation, hawking vegetables and others during the long lock-down which may demoralize them from reporting back to school.
He urged parents and guardians in Masindi district to counsel the children and endeavor to send them back to school in time.
“Due to the lockdown, some school girls have been impregnated. But pregnant children also have a right to education and the ministry of education and sports also encouraged parents and school administrators to accept them back to school,” he explained.
Kasaija assured the people that his school is prepared to receive children of all categories come January 10, 2022.
‘’We have put in place the necessities of observing the standard operating procedures including the temp guns, washing facilities and others,’’ he disclosed.
He added that Green Valley Secondary school has created enough learning spaces for children to maintain the social distance, and all their teachers have been vaccinated against the deadly coronavirus.
He however asked parents and guardians to remember sending their children back to school with at least two facemasks and hand sanitizer for personal use.
Kasaija said since Covid-19 outbreak has had negative economic impact on everybody, the management of Green Valley Secondary school has refrained from taking an unwise decision to hike school fees.
