following us on our social media platforms. Our learners will be writing in a
few weeks, we need to give them a break from hard domestic chores. Their energy
must be directed to schoolwork. Please give them time to rest, allow them time
to sleep after their long study sessions. I also want you to monitor them to
ensure that they are indeed studying. The use of mobile phones must be very
minimal. Make sure that they use their gadgets for academic purposes”, MEC in
