The government says as schools open, maximum care should continue to be observed to consolidate strides achieved to contain COVID-19.
VP Kembo Mohadi made the remarks when he toured John Cowie Primary School in Rusape this Wednesday to assess the state of preparedness of the school ahead of reopening for examination classes on Monday next week.
“Yes, the country has recorded low figures of COVID-19 infections but let us all remain alert so that it does not strike again.”
To ensure correct and hygienic use of masks by pupils, the school has come up with an innovative way of using colour codes.
“After realising that some masks could go for days without being washed we introduced colour codes so that each day has its own colour,” said John Cowie Primary School Headmaster Shadreck Nyawo.
The government has since released a schedule for the reopening of schools, with the bulk of classes expected to resume on the 9th of November.
Meanwhile, the government has pledged support towards ensuring Manicaland State University of Applied Sciences grows to its full potential in line with the national thrust to produce job creators instead of job seekers.
Vice President Mohadi this Wednesday toured the Manicaland State University of Applied Sciences in Mutare being constructed under the 100-day cycle programmes where he commended the university for using local talent in the construction process.
“Government would like to see this university grow and fulfil the mandate we gave it, of training students in applied sciences for national development. I assure you that as a government we will do everything possible to avail resources to ensure full operationalisation of the medical centre you have constructed. The thrust by President Mnangagwa that universities and colleges use local talent is being witnessed hear.”
