The Ministry of Education says teachers can access school resources from next Monday to prepare Weekly Home Study Packages for their students based on their classroom coverage.

The Weekly Home Study Packages will contain relevant learning materials, including activity sheets for students in Years 1 to 13.

The Ministry says teachers are encouraged to use existing communication platforms to send these learning materials to their students and parents are advised to assist their children in accessing the Weekly Home Study Packages.

The Ministry says parents who do not have access to online communication platforms can collect printed Weekly Home Study Packages from schools from Monday 5 July 2021 and says the completed activities must be returned before the next batch is accessed.

It says this will enable students to receive feedback from their teachers and arrangements for collection should be made with their Heads of Schools following all COVID-19 safety protocols.

The Ministry says a number of teachers have continued to assist their students through various platforms, such as recorded video lessons, live teaching through social media and worksheets disseminated through online communication platforms.

The Ministry says they understand a few teachers do not have resources available at home to prepare educational materials for their students which is why they can access school-based resources from Monday.

They say it is mandatory for all Heads of Schools and teachers to follow COVID-19 Safety Protocols when accessing school-based resources and interested teachers are advised to contact their Heads of School to create small bubbles that fall within the COVID-19 Safety Protocols.
