Schools in both Sierra Leone and the UK have been closed because of the virus but now those in Bo are reopening …
Over the past three months teachers across Bo and Warwick district have remained in touch through Whatsapp and, unlike the West African Ebola virus in 2015, this time we shared a crisis together- the Covid 19 Pandemic. Only about 20% pupils in Bo were accessing any education, mostly through the radio, or for those who could afford – private tutoring.
Today, July 1st, Bo schools have opened again for Class Six pupils who will sit their NPSE exams in August which they need to pass to be allowed to move on to Secondary Education. Teachers and pupils alike came to school with their face masks.

Sierra Leone, with a population of 8 million, has had 1,462 cases with 974 recovered. They suffered 60 deaths, compared to 4,000 from Ebola disease. Life has been made very difficult for the majority of people with food prices soaring due to closed borders.
