Jubilee Catholic Secondary School in the Nation’s Capital, as all schools throughout the country, resumed classes yesterday for term 2 of the academic calendar as instructed by the Department of Education.
School principal Mrs Barbara Miles said that normal lessons started yesterday with instructions given to teachers to review how far students have progressed with school work they were given to work on during their long school holiday.
“Normal classes are to continue unless other directives are given from the Education Department.”
“The wearing of face masks is now mandatory and if students present to school without a face mask they will be turned away.”
As much as possible, students are being encouraged to keep their face masks on at all times.
Students have also been discouraged from shaking hands, hugging and fist-bumping with one another.
Students have been making use of hand wash basins stationed around the school which were initially installed during the 2020 lockdowns.
“Sanitizing of hands is a must and as much as possible we would like to use hand sanitizers, as I am conscious of the water bill incurred if only hand washing was in effect.”
“It is a shared responsibility, so the buying of face masks and sanitizers is up to the parents to think about having those for their children.”
Mrs Miles further stated that under the Ministerial Statement if and when students do feel sick they should not come to school.
