It has been a few days since the Rwandan government suspended all schools and colleges to control the spread of COVID-19 disease. The initial closure was for a period of two weeks, but it is likely to be extended as new cases are reported. Unsure of when normalcy will resume, some schools and universities have already opted for e-learning tools. For children, it might feel good to take a break from the school drills for a moment and binge of TV shows. But there is an ultimate need to keep the ball rolling, seeing that many in primary and secondary schools are expected to begin their exams immediately the schools reopen.
