WITH THE HILARY TERM set to officially kick off today, some teachers and students will still be working without electronic devices.

General secretary of the Barbados Union of Teachers, Herbert Gittens, said while he had not received major complaints from teachers ahead of the new school term, which will be done virtually, the devices remained a challenge in some instances.

Gittens, who is also principal at Wesley Hall Junior School, said last Friday he had given out additional devices to students. (RA)
