More than 146,000 students from 207 government schools today resumed their studies, marking the start of the second semester of the academic year.
However, their classes will be held virtually under the strict precautionary measures taken by the National Medical Taskforce and competent authorities to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus and ensure the safety of students and the community.
The education ministry has issued a guide that covers all health, logistical, educational and evaluation aspects regarding the exceptional learning conditions.
The ministry has also provided support through its educational platforms that feature hundreds of lessons, academic activities, tests, past exams and model answers.
The ministry is also using television and radio channels and YouTube to present lessons to all students, including those with special needs. Hotlines have also been set up to ensure easy and open contact between all stakeholders.
