Live question and answer session on schools and Covid-19 in Tower Hamlets

Join us online on Tuesday 13 October between 7pm – 8.30pm to learn about how schools in Tower Hamlets are handling Covid-19 and what you need to know to protect yourself, your family and the community.

Speaking will be:

  • James Thomas, Corporate Director, Children and Culture, London Borough of Tower Hamlets
  • Dr Katie Cole, Associate Director, Public Health for Children and Families, London Borough of Tower Hamlets
  • Cllr Danny Hassell, Cabinet Member for Children and Schools, London Borough of Tower Hamlets

They will discuss what new measures and guidance are in place across our education settings before responding to your questions.

You will have the option to submit a question in advance when you register, or you can ask a question on the night using the live chat function.

How it will work:

The event will be hosted through a Microsoft Teams Live event.

You can join on the night through a link which you will receive automatically once you register.

We recommend joining through a web browser on a computer (such as Chrome or Firefox). You can also participate through a smart phone or tablet, but on these devices you may be prompted to download a free Microsoft Teams app.

The event will go live at 7pm on Tuesday 13 October - this is when the link will become live/the event will be visible. You will then be able to submit questions by typing them through a Q&A tool. You can also watch the session without asking a question.

You will not be able to turn on your camera/microphone.

You must register to attend. You can also submit a question in advance, if you wish.
