With about 250 invited participants, the CPDM Mezam V Section president, Professor Abety Peter says it will help delegates share ideas on ways to support the back to school course.
“Participants too don’t have to displace themselves from where they are” he said.
Key proposals he explains have already been made.
“Some of the participants have suggested that we as a community should think about contributing money to help needy parents and pupils in their return to school” he said.
The financial contribution he added “will go in the direction of providing school needs, giving scholarships to the needy, as well as putting together a fund that can help for the recruitment of teachers in the locality” .
First of its kind, the virtual conference is expected to last for three weeks, at the end of which resolutions taken will be made public.
The team did not unveil the exact dates of these online conferences but said the public will be notified on the resolutions taken by the 250 invited delegates.
