Parents Should Make School Fees Payment Plans – Minister Mutsvangwa
Parents should make school fees payment plans if they do not have adequate school fees, says Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa while responding to questions during the Question and Answer session.
"In addition, she also said Government’s decision to open schools next week was made after considering that learners have not been going to school for a long time due to successive three waves of the Covid-19.
“It is not easy to balance all the issues that ought to be put under consideration. If parents have no fees they can approach school authorities.
“I think all parents have been looking forward to see children going back to school. Covid-19 came unexpectedly and we have had three waves, no one wants people to suffer or fail to travel,” said Minister Mutsvangwa.
“Our people are clamouring for vaccination, which has not been the case before. We appreciate that children have not been going to school.
“We have been doing a lot of work to make sure that we prepare. The dates have been (announced) after a careful consideration,” she said.
Minister Mutsvangwa also tackled the issue of false social media reports that have been suggesting that pupils should first be vaccinated before attending lessons.
“There is no Government policy to have children vaccinated before going to school,” said Minister Mutsvangwa.
