Children of the Ayetepa D/A Basic 'B' JHS in the Ningo Prampram District of the Greater Accra Region reported to school in their numbers on the first day of reopening after the long break due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Classes began on the first day and the children who wore face mask  had  hand sanitisers on their desks  as part of the safety protocols.

The school has mounted Veronica buckets and hand washing basins for the children.

The headteacher of the school, Mr Nathaniel Dassinor Lomotey, said he would ensure that students and teachers adhered strictly to the laid down public health protocols during school hours.

Mr Dassinor urged parents to play active roles in safe guarding the health of their children because the COVID-19 pandemic seriously affected the academic calendar and it would not be prudent for schools to close down again.
