With school starting again on Monday, the Ministry of Education has issued some advice to make the first term easier for both parents and pupils.

 

The ministry encourages all school pupils and parents to be prepared for school. Setting a daily routine for school students is vitally important. The ministry recommends parents should provide breakfast for their child every morning and encourage them to drink plenty of water. Parents should also establish sleep times, pack healthy lunches for their children and develop positive attitudes through regular conversations with their youngsters.

Parents should ensure their children have all the necessities before going to school, the ministry adds. This includes the correct uniform, school bags, footwear, sports gear, stationery, haircuts, and lunch boxes.

Knowing your school schedules is important and the ministry encourages students to take into account the school’s starting dates, calendar, timetables, and bus schedules.

If students are yet to enrol at school, parents should supply the essential documents for their child such as birth certificates, passport, school report, and possibly a doctor’s report.

The ministry also encourages parents and pupils to be well informed by reading the school’s website, visiting the school, listening to the radio, talk to the principal, teacher or other parents and talk to the health nurse.

Meanwhile, the education ministry wishes every student a promising and successful year.
