About 900 nurses have been assigned to various schools as part of preparations for the new school year through the coordinated efforts of the Education and Health ministries, reports Al-Anba daily quoting sources.
Sources revealed that in accordance with what the two ministries have agreed upon in a series of meetings, the nurses will start working at the clinics in schools and all the necessary medical equipment will be provided before the administrations of schools are fully operational.
Sources added the ministry announced the academic vacancies that must be filled through local recruitment, indicating the ministry has been coordinating with its interior counterpart to issue entry visas for stranded teachers whose residency permits expired while they are outside the country to allow them to return to the country before the new school year.
Sources confirmed that Higher Education Minister Dr Ali Al- Mudhaf and Undersecretary Dr Ali Al-Yacoub have been closely following up the preparations for the resumption of classes.
Meanwhile, no new teachers were hired from abroad as no entity has been assigned to recruit teachers from other countries since the start of the Corona pandemic one and a half year ago.
