PM Imran welcomes children returning to schools

Islamabad (Web Desk): Prime Minister Imran Khan has welcomed the return of children to schools as educational institutes gear up to open on September 15 after a six-month-long closure due to the novel coronavirus.

In a tweet on Monday, he said tomorrow we will welcome millions of children back to school.

The premier said that it is the priority of the government and the nation's collective responsibility to ensure that every child can go to school safely to learn.

PM Imran said that the government has worked to ensure that school operations are aligned with public health safety rules on COVID-19.

It is pertinent to mention that the educational institutions in the country will begin reopening in phases from Tuesday, following a fall in new cases of COVID-19, ending a long closure that led to exam cancellations and introduction of online classes by a number of institutions.
