Students in basic education schools in Nay Pyi Taw are studying happily in peace since the nationwide reopening of schools on 1 June after the temporary closure due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Ministry of Education provided refresher courses and capacity building training to teachers to assist in teaching in April and May.
“Teaching is all okay since the government provides refresher and capacity building courses for the teachers from the school,” said the headmistress of the No (8) Basic Education High School, which operates regular one shift-schooling in Nay Pyi Taw.
“Before reopening the school, the government painted new painting to the school and about 100 people, with the help of the township administration body, cleaned the school compound,” she added.
Teachers and health workers also conduct the COVID-19 measures set by the Ministry of Health and Sports in order to prevent the spread of the disease in schools.
The headmistress also said some children experienced mild fever when the weather is very hot, and in that case, their parents were asked to take care of them at home without sending to schools.
As of 1 June, the student attendance rate was 76.2%. There are usually more than 900 students, and over 800 students have enrolled in the school as of yesterday, she added.
“Some alumni’ parents have not yet enrolled in the school, but we have received phone calls informing that they are travelling,” she said.
The number of students is expected to increase this year. In some classes, the student population is higher than expected, according to her.
Though the nationwide school enrolment week was set from 24 to 31 May, enrolment of students who have not yet enrolled for various reasons will be accepted continuously during the school opening period. — Lu Lin Nge/GNLM
