Not enough counsellors: Kumar Minister for Education Premila Kumar has revealed there are not enough counsellors to provide psychosocial support to senior students and teachers returning to schools in November.

Kumar said there are only 35 counsellors which are not enough to provide psychosocial support to senior students and teachers returning to schools in November.

She said the ministry is mindful that many students and teachers will need psychosocial support when school resume next month.

“The ministry has been working with United Nation Children's Fund and Department of Foreign Affairs to provide refresher training to 35 counsellors,” she said.

“The 35 counsellors will be put in clusters to provide psychosocial support for teachers and students who are returning to schools in November.

“We also understand that the 35 counsellors are not enough to provide psychosocial support to senior students and teachers resuming classes next month,” she said.

She said to address the shortage of counsellors, the ministry will be providing psychosocial support training for child protection officers.

“Starting from next week school child protection officers will undergo psychosocial support services training to help students who will be resuming school after six months,” she said.

“Students have missed face-to-face teaching and learning in a classroom for almost six months and now is the time to bring them to school with safety and care.

“Virtual training of the heads of schools started on Tuesday. They have prepared the school environment to ensure it adheres to health and safety measures,” she said.

She said the health ministry will visit schools to check the facilities before clearance is given for their reopening.
