Schools, colleges reopen after 543 days 

Schools and colleges across the country reopened on Sunday (Sep 12), after closure of one and half years due to coronavirus pandemic.

Students and teachers have entered the classrooms maintaining all the safety rules. They were seen wearing facemasks, Banglanews correspondents report.

Secondary School Certificate (SSC), Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and Primary Education Completion (PEC) examinees have attended classes.

After the reopening, the SSC and HSC examinees of 2020-2021, and the students of fifth standard will attend classes regularly, according to the government decision.

Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni said: "The students of grades 1-4 and 6-9 will attend classes once a week initially. Later, all the classes will be held regularly."

Now, only a few months remain for the SSC, HSC, and PEC candidates. Once their term comes to an end, at the end of the year, regular classes would start for Classes 9 and 11, she added.

Educational institutions have also been asked to form a coordination committee consisting of teachers to ensure that the respective institution follows the guidelines and arrange a meeting with guardians and managing committee in this regard.
