KUWAIT CITY, March 6: In a move believed to be necessary to avoid introducing any unhealthy foods or prohibited items to students, the Ministry of Education has decided to prevent employees of delivery companies from entering schools in order to preserve the safety of children and the school community. In a press statement, the Acting Assistant Undersecretary for Educational Development and Student Activities Dr. Ghanem Al-Sulaimani revealed that he had sent a circular to all schools of all stages in all six educational zones to ban the entry of employees of delivery companies into schools as of Sunday, this week, either at the request of students or administrative and educational bodies. He stressed that school canteens must meet all needs in this regard.
Meanwhile, Dr. Al-Sulaimani explained that the ministry will form a team to confront the spread of drugs and cigarettes in schools, especially vapes, with the cooperation of the Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Social Affairs, in addition to NGO called “Bashayer Al-Kheir Society”, according to specific mechanisms and activities.
These include awareness lectures about drugs, and media campaigns organized by the educational development sector starting from this week. These campaigns will be held in two phases in the intermediate and high school levels. The ministry will organize trips to recreational and scientific places, such as the scientific center, libraries, and book fairs, for members of the awareness group about the dangers of smoking and drugs.
