In February, 2021, the ministry of Education with the support of Ministry of Health and Ministry of Sports Culture and Heritage developed the Covid-19 safety and health protocols/guidelines that will enable the gradual and safe resumption of Co-curricular Activities in Education Institutions which were suspended in 2020.
The guidelines were later presented to National Co-curriclar Activities Steering Committee and the Regional Co-curricular Activities Management Committees. These protocols have been cascaded to all levels and disseminated to all schools.
On 18th October ,2021 the Ministry of Health recommended that Interschool sporting activities may gradually resume with strict adherence to the current guidelines prepared by MOE. The initial focus should be on non-contact/low contact activities as guided in the protocols.
In view of the above development, the Ministry of Education advises the Principals to engage learners in internal co-curricular activities and guided inter-school contest over the weekend and after classes.
Meanwhile the Ministry is working on modalities for full resumption of activities due course.
