All schools will reopen and resume classes from tomorrow.

Permanent Secretary for Education Selina Kuruleca says the decision to reopen school after such a calamity was not an easy one.

Kuruleca says the damage inflicted by the floodwaters to the main infrastructure around the country, like roads, bridges and crossings, was extensive, impacting teachers, students, parents and classrooms. She says this adversity, however, did not dampen our spirits and the Ministry’s commitment to education and growth continue.

The Permanent Secretary acknowledges the resilience and perseverance of all teachers, students and parents during the recent school closure and says that when schools are reopened tomorrow, we do so with a renewed sense of purpose and unity.

She further says their unwavering dedication and commitment to students have been a beacon of hope in our darkest hour, and it is through their efforts that we are able to stand here today, ready to embark on a new chapter in our educational journey.

The Permanent Secretary is reminding all school management, heads of schools and teachers to ensure that their respective schools are clean and in operational condition as students return for classes.

She urges parents and guardians to make all the necessary arrangements for their children to return to school.

Kuruleca is reminding all heads of schools and teachers to adhere to the guidelines in Circular 43/24 that were sent out on the 21st of March 2024, which outlines strategies that can be adopted and implemented in schools to compensate for the lost teaching and learning time, due to the recent adverse weather conditions which led to school closure in the past few days.

The Permanent Secretary advises all parents and students that we are not out of the woods yet as the cyclone season ends next month, and we should be alert at all times and should not be complacent.
