By Aaron Humes: Minister of Education Patrick Faber says he is proposing that distance education return on Monday, September 7 at pre- and primary level and secondary on October 5, as well as homeschooling.

He says some have already been approved to begin classes, but face-to-face teaching remains proscribed.

At the pre- and primary level, Faber says schools will develop learning activities for students based on the established curriculum and textbooks provided through the free Government service. Parents can pick up the items from the school and/or pick up point identified by the school, and return them on completion.

The month of September, Faber said, will be a time of “learning recovery” where students will be tested on what they need to get up to speed.

Secondary schools will teach by online resources and Telemedia will assist in sourcing digital devices that will be distributed pre-loaded with certain educational resources.

However, the Ministry has not given up on eventually having face-to-face education, with the Minister mentioning the contribution of the COVID-19 Fund set up by Michael Ashcroft.

At the tertiary level, 6 thousand students will benefit from a 25 GB data package from Telemedia for use in their studies, and the Minister proposed a contest to promote healthy lifestyles with assistance from Digi.
