Madam Helena Onua Offen, a teacher at True Vine School at Adenta, said she had been praying against the second closure of schools because her only means of survival was teaching.

Mr Ernest Ofori Asempa, a teacher at Christiansburg Preparatory School at Ogbojo, near Adenta, told the GNA that, he could not afford to bear the difficulties his family went through during the first closure of schools.

He said though schools had resumed, he and his family were yet to recover from the impact of the long break and may not be able to endure a second closure of schools.

Mr Asempa said what was needed was strict enforcement of Covid-19 protocols and not a closure, which would cause a lot of problems for private schools and the economy.
