Education remains mandatory for all young people aged between 6 and 16 years old (2007 Act), however given the circumstances, there will be no penalties for students who are absent.
The Government would like to reiterate the importance of education in the classroom, which continues to be strongly recommended. Nonetheless, for students who may be unable to return to class for health reasons, arrangements will be made for them to receive educational support remotely.
