The reopening of schools on the 19th of November 2020 has made some schools to new implement strategies in order to curb the spread of covid -19 pandemic among students.
In a interview with this publication, the Headmistress of St Peters Secondary School, in Mbare, Mrs Modesta Mapfuku said, they have come up with a strategy in order to maintain social distancing.
“Form three and four will attend their lessons from 0700hrs up to 1100hrs, while form ones and twos will start their lessons from 1100hrs to 1630hrs.”
No teachers reported from the duty during the time of interview except five student teachers who managed to report for work, said Mrs Mapfuku.
Speaking to the Headmaster of Gwinyai primary school, Killian Chidzero said a total of 17 teachers out of 43 reported for duty and students also trickling in for lessons.
He added that at present they have no strategy on board in order to decongest the school and maintained social distancing.
Meanwhile, most teachers are not reporting for duty because they are alleged of being afraid of contacting covid 19 since there are no PPEs at school as well as incapacitation.
