Asante Akyem North Education Director assures of schools' safety ahead of reopening

The Ghana Education Service (GES) of the Asante Akyem North District has assured parents and guardians that it will ensure the safety of all school environments ahead of reopening this week.

Mrs. Mildred Ama Kwakye Agyapong, Asante Akyem North District Director of Education, gave the assurance during an exclusive interview with Adanse3 fm’s, Abuburo Nkosua.

She said apart from disinfecting all schools before the reopening date, students would also be provided with nose masks and hand sanitizers as well as have their temperatures checked at morning, afternoon and evening to ensure their safety whilst in school.

"All schools have been fumigated and disinfected. In addition, Personal Protective Equipment (PPES) will be distributed to all schools", she added.

Mrs. Agyapong explained that the "Back-To-School" Campaign was initiated as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated effects on education in the District.

She said students stayed home for long as a result of the outbreak of the virus and that was why GES found it necessary to embark on the campaign to inform parents and all other stakeholders of the safety of the school environment and the need for them to also play their roles effectively to complement their efforts.
