Education Ministry monitoring weather
The Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training is monitoring the impact of the inclement weather at all public schools.
The Ministry is aware that some schools were impacted by the heavy rains being experienced in Barbados over the last two days. Where necessary, remedial work was done at the schools and measures put in place to curb the influx of rainwater. Students were shifted to other areas of the affected schools, while some were shifted to online modality.
The Wilkie Cumberbatch Primary School was closed half-day today after flooding occurred in several areas of the plant and there were issues with falling plaster. This school will have all online classes on Friday, October 30, to facilitate the start of structural repairs. (BGIS)
