Combermere’s plan to catch up
COMBERMERE SCHOOL HAS decided that this term there will be “no telescoped timetable to accommodate [athletics] eliminations”.
That instruction has come from the school’s principal Vere Parris, as he seeks to make up for the lost time students spent away from the Waterford, St Michael institution because of environmental problems there.
Around 1 000 students returned to Combermere last Tuesday for the first time since mid-November, when the school was closed indefinitely.
In a letter sent to parents and guardians on Thursday, January 19 and titled Re: Mitigation Strategies To Redress Some Of The Effects Of Time Lost To Environmental Issues, Parris outlined 15 procedures which teachers and students have been urged to follow, and which he believes would optimise the 13-week Hilary term.
