Combermere PTA delivers letters to Ministry of Education
THE EXECUTIVE OF the Parent-Teacher Association of the Combermere School has delivered letters to the Ministry of Education expressing concern about the environmental issues that have forced the closure of the school and resulted in loss of valuable teaching time.
First vice president of the PTA Alan Marshall, who delivered the letters to Parliamentary Secretary Harry Husbands, said the promise was made that the letters would be taken to the Minister of Education Ronald Jones and a response given.
Marshall spoke to the media after the brief meeting at the Elsie Payne Complex.
He said the letters dealt with a number of issues, chief among them was how the five weeks the students missed as a result of the Waterford, St Michael, school would be made up.
More time will also be lost next term, generally referred to as the “sports” term with a heavy emphasis on athletics. Marshall said they did not want to disadvantage the student athletes. (LK)
