Social Share

BY THE END of next month, more than 400 primary school teachers will be appointed.

Minister of Education Ronald Jones, during a media briefing in the committee room of Parliament, said 416 appointments will be made, increasing the established posts from 1 392 to 1 631.

In addition, he said 60 supernumerary posts will be incorporated, further increasing this number to 1 691. Jones said these were teachers who had not been appointed prior to 2007 who will now be added to the established order.

Jones also said 239 additional posts will be created once the Public Teachers Service Order is passed later in the year.

As for the new school term, beginning September 7, Jones said schools were 95 per cent ready and a further update would be available by the middle of next week. (CA)
