All grade six students are to resume schools between 19th-23rd October to prepare for the First School Leaving Certificate and National Common Entrance Examinations even as all heads of public and private schools with huge population are also advised to consider staggered school attendance to avoid going against COVID-19 protocols relating to social distancing.

He stressed, “Already, various training and engagements have been held to orientate school principals and teachers on basic operational requirements.

“Similarly, the management of schools have been mandated to clean, fumigate and re-arrange the school environment preparatory to the resumption. In the meantime, arrangements are ongoing to facilitate the resumption of tertiary institutions in the State.”
