Opening of Church Schools Postponed

The Ministry for Education and Employment today announced that in State Schools educators will be returning on the 28th of September and compulsory school-aged students, hence students attending primary and secondary schools, will return from the 7th till the 14th of October. The Secretariat for Catholic Education also received a request by the MUT to follow the same direction.

It was therefore decided that educators serving in Church Schools are to return to work at their respective school as from the dates previously established by each school. Until such time that students return to school, educators are to familiarise themselves with the protocol to be adopted and continue with their preparation and training for the scholastic year. The management of each school will give directions on these days and will devise a plan how students will be returning to school between the 7th and the 14th of October. Up to the 6th October online teaching and learning is not permitted. This is in conformity with the direction issued by the Ministry for Education and Employment and the Malta Union of Teachers.

The Secretariat is very sorry for the inconvenience caused during this challenging time and hopes that this will be of benefit and that health and safety of all involved always remains a priority.
