By BBN Staff: As is customary annually, high school students are called in before the start of the new academic year for summer classes.

However, this year, because of many unforeseen changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Education is urging all high schools to cooperate by not requesting students to participate.

The Ministry says that their request is because of the learning gaps that should be addressed in August.

Additionally, the Ministry reminds that the pandemic created economic hardships and many parents are unable to meet the cost of the summer classes.

The Ministry also makes a special request to all educational institutions to keep the cost of education to the very minimum.

The memo from the Ministry reminds that all incoming first formers will sit the Primary School Examinations and the assessment will be used to determine learning gaps.

Similar assessments will be administered throughout high school.

As schools will open on August 10, the ministry reminded that the purpose of the early reopening is for the conducting of the learning recovery programs.
