Schools to deliver onsite lessons all five weekdays


All government and government-approved schools will conduct in-person lessons all five days of the week starting from Monday (15), the Ministry of Education says.

Accordingly, schools will function as usual from Monday to Friday between 7.30 am and 1.30 pm.

The Ministry of Education said that provincial directors of education have been asked to arrange a method to provide transport facilities for principals, teachers and students of schools located in areas where public transport services are still limited.

The Ministry also stressed that the next three months should be utilized to teach the curriculum to the students and extracurricular activities should be held after school hours.

Further, the Education Ministry advised to limit the functions held at schools for the time being.
