Delayed opening of several schools
Several primary and secondary schools will not be opening on Monday for the new school term.
The delays are due to construction and rehabilitative work, resulting in the need for the school plants to be industrially cleaned, materials sanitised, furniture repositioned, school meals serving areas reequipped, and teachers allowed to stage their classrooms before students can be readmitted.
The secondary schools that will start on Wednesday, September 11 are Alexandra School, Grantley Adams Memorial Secondary, Frederick Smith Secondary and Princess Margaret Secondary.
The primary schools which will start on Monday, September 16 are Ann Hill School, Bay Primary, Belmont Primary, Eagle Hall Primary, Luther Thorne Primary, Milton Lynch Primary, St Bartholomew Primary, St Giles Primary School, St John Primary, St Margaret Primary, St Paul’s Primary, St Philip Primary, St Stephen’s Nursery, Welches Primary, Wesley Hall Junior, and Wilkie Cumberbatch Primary.
The teaching and non-teaching staff are asked to report to the schools and take directions from the principal as it relates to getting the school ready for opening.
All other schools will start on Monday, September 9. (BGIS)
