Thanks to the support of the Global Partnership for Education, the schools were disinfected at the beginning of the school year in October 2020 and hand-washing devices were distributed.
Booklets were distributed to children, starting with the students who will need to take exams at the end of the school year (Certificat d'Études Primaires et Élémentaires for the CM2 classes, equivalent of grade 5, and Brevet d'Études du Premier Cycle for the 3e classes), equivalent of grade 9.
"These booklets will be very helpful, because due to COVID-19, the learning results of our students are down. In addition to the lessons that we give in class, we count on the family to accompany the children”, says Wilfrid Malonga.
At Mafouta Primary School, information on the right prevention measures has been reinforced for a safe return of children to school.
