School reopened on the 8th of January, 2021 after the long COVID-19 lockdown. Before reopening teachers and other staff were given training on how to handle students and other stakeholders amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The school provided protective equipment such as Veronica buckets, hand sanitisers, tissues, liquid soap, infra-red thermometers, and even nose masks.
Posters highlighting the school’s ‘ No nose-mask, No entry’ policy, illustrations of the COVID-19 symptoms, and other COVID-19 educative posters were pasted around the school.
On the day of reopening, three entrances were designated. One each for the Preschool, Primary, and JHS divisions. Everybody at the school was required to wear a nose mask. All stakeholders were taken through the observance of the set protocols: First, the body temperature was taken, hands were washed, then the inspection of bags, and finally, the application of a hand sanitiser before one was cleared to enter the school.
The Greater Accra NADMO Director and a team of 40 visited the school on the 3rd of February 2021 to inspect the COVID-19 measures enforced by the Dome branch. He was highly impressed by our processes and even offered the school a certificate for being the best school in the Ga-East Municipality, for its strict adherence to the set COVID-19 safety protocols.
We will see the adherence of these protocols till the end.
