Students to be offered after-school programs

After-school programs will be made available in all primary and middle schools in urban areas, the Ministry of Education pledged recently.

Such programs cater to the needs of working parents who are unable to pick up their children immediately after school.

In a notice issued recently, the ministry said the programs should run until half an hour after the usual time that office work ends.

For students who have special needs, the programs can last even longer to solve the difficulties working parents have in picking up their children, the notice said.
