The Dean Dr Colin Calleja and the Deputy Dean Dr Michelle Attard Tonna yesterday held a meeting with the Permanent Secretary for the Ministry for Education and Employment, Dr Frank Fabri.
The COVID-19 framework for the reopening of childcare centres, schools and educational institutions was discussed. This framework provides five possible scenarios and five key elements, and stakeholders are now being asked to provide feedback for each scenario. The way the faculty can contribute to the reopening of schools was also discussed, based on a number of concerns expressed related to the lack of engagement of some students and the lack of capability of some parents to support in homeschooling, particularly if these parents need to return to their workplace.
