The awareness booklets have been designed for students, parents, teachers and school staff.

Sharjah recently launched a series of 16 e-booklets on staying safe in school in the time of Covid-19. Tailored to the daily new-normal routines of students, parents and teachers, the comprehensive guide lists out the precautions that must be taken on the campus and beyond.

The awareness series is a project of the Health Promotion Department (HPD) at the Supreme Council for Family Affairs in Sharjah has released, in cooperation with Sharjah Private Education Authority (SPEA).

Available in Arabic and English, the booklets are divided into eight sections, ranging from preventive guides for parents and students to getting to know the signs and symptoms associated with Covid-19. A section is dedicated to boosting immunity, and another for healthy student meal recipes and lunch boxes. Readers will also get some tips and advice on how to help safeguard public health during distance learning.

Iman Rashid Saif, director of HPD, explained that with these new e-publications, students, parents and the entire school community will have a clear guide on the steps they need to follow — whether at home, on the school bus or on campus — to prevent Covid-19 infection.

“The updated health information and guidelines in these booklets would help strengthen the commitment of students, parents, teaching and administrative staff to following the precautionary measures issued by the authorities and the World Health Organisation,” Saif said.

“Our goal is to encourage healthy lifestyles and develop a healthy and safe school environment. This would positively impact the physical, social, and educational growth of students.”

The booklets are part of the executive phases of the ‘Together We Return’ campaign launched by the SPEA in partnership with the HPD at the beginning of the new academic year.
