According to him, it is proper to acquaint the teachers on measures to take to avoid the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic among the staff and the students.

“The importance of this workshop cannot be overemphasised in light of the global pandemic.

“I, therefore, urge participants to pay rapt attention to facilitators and to also cascade training to other members of staff.

“This training is very crucial because we do not want to take any chance when it comes to the safety of our children.

“While plans are in motion to reopen schools, it is important that we prepare you with the necessary information on COVID-19 to prevent its spread among pupils, students and staff to ensure everyone’s safety,” he said.
