All Scots pupils - except shielders - in full-time return to school after Easter

All pupils across Scotland will be back in the classroom full-time following the Easter holidays, Nicola Sturgeon has confirmed.
Speaking at a Scottish Government coronavirus briefing, the First Minister said the decision has been taken following an assessment of relevant data.
She said: “When the Easter holidays end, virtually all pupils will return to school full-time, so secondary schools will go back to in-person, full-time learning.”
Ms Sturgeon said the exception to this is children who are shielding, who are asked to remain at home until April 26.
Speaking about the return to schools, she said: “This, I know, will be a huge relief to many children and young people and, of course, to many parents and carers and as I said a moment ago, by the end of April we want to see children on the shielding list get back to school in person as well.”
The First Minister announced that Scotland recorded no deaths of Covid-19 patients for the fourth day running but stressed this figure tends to be artificially low over the weekends as most registry offices are closed.

  • Why can’t Sturgeon show the royal family some respect. Why can’t sturgeon stop spewing her bile until Philly is buried at least. Everyone knows Nicolas hatred for all things England. But surely she must know when to lay off tbe hate.

Rebuttal letter to European Medicines Agency from Doctors for Covid Ethics, April 1, 2021 NOTICE For the avoidance of doubt, if your regulatory body does not immediately suspend its “emergency” recommendation of potentially dangerous inadequately tested gene-based “vaccines”, while the matters which we have highlighted to you are properly investigated, we hereby put the European Medicines Agency on notice of being complicit in medical experimentation, in violation of the Nuremberg Code, which thereby constitutes the commission of crimes against humanity. Furthermore, it is your indirigible duty as a regulatory body to ensure that all doctors worldwide are advised that they are taking part in medical experimentation via “vaccination” programmes, whether wittingly or unwittingly, with all the legal and ethical obligations that such involvement entails.

  • There’s literally children on heroin where I live now but don’t worry the schools are open at the end of the month. Countless years of effort thrown away for multiple generations for a virus that has a mortality rate twelve times lower than diarrhea what an absolute joke

  • And she is still trying to make herself look better than Boris. After announcing kids going back to school, she was asked if she couldn’t open pubs and other hospitality sooner than planned. Once again her answer was to compare her planned opening dates to Englands, by saying Scots pubs were opening earlier. They are not. Yes pubs are opening, but if they do not have a beer garden they cannot sell alcohol ! It seems to be an obsession with her, indie and comparing anything she does to England in the hope she will score brownie points. A bitter and twisted woman.

Never mind having to stay in your home many never had a home to come...well..home to. Gas Masks.. Rationing. Sleeping in the underground or in your back garden in an air raid shelter or huddling under the kitchen table.. So much taken for granted today simply wasn't there for them you lot would have been demanding the government to surrender so as you could have your curtains opened at night.. Sheesh
