Although the entire month of October is officially designated as Child Month, this change became necessary given the need to prioritise alternative arrangements to support parents and teachers for the safe reopening of schools.
The Child Month Committee has decided that the theme for Child Month 2020 is “Keeping All Our Children Safe.”
The focus will be on health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The broader theme for Child Month continues to be “Love the Child.”
Based on the situation that exists in schools due to COVID 19 protocols, especially the need for social distancing, the Ministry said it will be scaling down activities in order to keep everyone safe.
