Final year students of all public schools in the Birim Central Municipality in the Eastern Region have started classes in their various schools as directed by the government.
This came to light when the Ghana News Agency (GNA) toured the schools to observe what was happening in the schools.
The Agency observed that teachers were at post teaching, while the pupils were also observing physical distancing protocols in the classrooms and were all wearing nose masks.
The schools also had veronica buckets, tissue papers, and liquid soap for handwashing.
At an orientation for final year students of Akim Oda Presbyterian ‘A’ Junior High School, Reverend Happy Anyana, Headteacher of the school advised the students to strictly abide by the safety protocols for the prevention of the spread of the corona virus to enable them to have successful studies in school and pass their examinations.
He advised the students to get themselves well fed before coming to school and carry their snack and water because they would have to study for four hours without break.
Out of the 94 final year students of the school, 68 pupils were at the orientation.
Mr Samuel Appiatu, the Headteacher of Akim Oda Presbyterian ‘B’ JHS said, the school was using all the four classrooms for the form three students to ensure physical distancing.
