WESTERN Province’s Education Authority will distribute Home Learning Materials for children next week.

In an interview with Island Sun Gizo, Principal Education Office of Western Education Authority, Freedom Tozaka said consultations on how to distribute the materials is underway.

He said his office is cautious on how to roll out Home Learning programmes as threat of COVID-19 still high in the communities.

“Our best shot is to work closely with teachers and community leaders on best approach to roll out the Home Learning Programme.

“We do not want to expose our children to this virus and this is one of our fear.

“We know that there are committees in respective communities in respect COVID-19 protocols and appeal to chiefs and leaders to work closely with our teachers when the materials arrived at respective communities,” Tozaka said.

He said the materials are very important for children learning continuity during the pandemic which has forced schools to remain closed until now.

Tozaka said the Ministry of Education has already declared children learning continuity begins this week as such collective efforts is needed in Western province to see the ambition roll out successfully.
