Safe Return to School in September

Getting Ready for September


Kuwait National English School is in full swing in its preparations for pupils to return to school in September. Two pieces of good news in the past couple of weeks is the Governments decision to return to a relative normal. They have approved the return to in class learning in September and have announced the reopening of the Airport on July 1st.

We are working with and cooperating with Ministry of Education for all precautions and measures to be taken for a safe return to school. KNES has already spent a great deal of time and effort to ensure that the school was ready for the return of students as soon as the Government gave approval. After a recent visit from the Ministry, we were very encouraged by the feedback on our preparations.

The main aspects of preparation is to ensure deep cleaning is performed regularly, social distancing is the standard practice and efficient action is taken immediately whenever incidents occur. The class sizes will be reduced to ensure social distancing and therefore spaces for September are limited to allowed capacity. Some year groups are already at capacity so please ensure your child is registered for September 2021.

We will keep parents informed as time goes forward and what responsibilities are necessary from the school, students and parents.

In the meantime lets be thankful for being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel and the most important aspect of life at the moment which is children returning to school!
