Luanda - Angolan minister of Education Luísa Grilo Saturday called on parents and guardians to cooperate in the safe return to the school.


Parents and guardians represent key component in education and teaching process, particularly, in observation of the rules laid down aimed to combat Covid-19 pandemic, she said.

Addressing a press conference on return of classes, due to start on Monday (October 05), Luísa Grilo stated that in this special context, of great vulnerability, everyone is required to show a high sense of responsibility.

She said that a careful work has been done to ensure a safer welcome to students and prevent children from being infected in schools.

The minister also said that children who suffer from various pathologies will be left out, in particular those with the disease of sickle cell anemia.

In turn, minister of Higher Education, Science, Technology and Innovation, Maria do Rosário Sambo, appealed for patriotic sense, team spirit and humanism.

She said that the work done allows higher education institutions to re-open within normal limits. She recognised, however, that there are still some “aspects” to address.

According to the new calendar released by education sector, classes are set to resume on October 5 in the university and the transition classes of the 1st and 2nd cycles of secondary education (grades 6th, 9th, 12th and 13th).

Students with 7th, 8th, 10th and 11th grades start on Ocober 19, while the primary education and 1st cycle begin on October 26th.
