If you are a Zimbabwean learner , then you need to be informed that the cabinet of Zimbabwe made a decision regarding the reopening of schools. On Tuesday evening, it was decided that the reopening of schools in the country had to be postponed yet again.
The development was announced by the Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Mrs Monica Mutsvangwa in Harare.The decision to postpone the reopening of schools by a two weeks was made as a result of the Covid-19 infections which continue to rise .
On Tuesday evening the daily infections rose to above 2800 , up from the 2661 which was recorded on Monday evening. The decision to postpone the reopening is aimed at protecting the learners and teachers from getting infected.
A few days ago, the teachers' unions were calling for the postponement of the reopening of schools as a result of the infections which keep surging.
However even though the reopening of schools has been postponed, parents and guardians need to use this moment to assist their children with school work .It is a great opportunity for the parents to assist their children with whatever may be challenging regarding school work.
It is advisable as well for the teachers to make arrangements with their learners and give them some school work to do during the two weeks. For those who have access to communication devices ,internet services and data , the teacher can use the whatsapp platform to share lessons or tasks which should be done by the learners.
For those learners who do not have access to the internet , communication devices and data ,it can be a challenge to reach out to the learners.It is important to keep the learning process moving forward so that the learners are not affected.Two weeks has already been lost by the Zimbabwean learners as this is the second postponement to the reopening of the schools.
There is need for the teachers to put an effort towards ensuring that learners are provided with school work.The parents on behalf of their children need to work together with the teachers to make sure that children still learn even if the schools will be closed.
