Barbados’ school doors are open for Dominicans.

At least 50 tertiary level students are coming to Barbados to complete their studies, which were interrupted when the Category 5 Hurricane Maria ravaged their island last month. The students, who are in the final year of their associate degree programmes, are set to enter the Barbados Community College within the coming weeks, once the Ministry of Education is able to secure all of the resources necessary to facilitate them. 

This was confirmed by Minister of Education Ronald Jones, who was speaking to the media yesterday after a church service at Abundant Life Assembly to launch Education Month.

Jones said his ministry was trying its best to facilitate Dominicans students at all levels once the requests were made. (LK)
