Parents and guardians who have children sitting the 2020 Barbados Secondary Schools’ Entrance Examination on Tuesday, July 14, have been issued with a number of guidelines by the Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training.
Parents and guardians have been advised that students should have a nutritious breakfast and to provide a simple, packed lunch for their child or ward such as sandwiches, a boxed juice, and fruit.
A statement from the ministry also said each child must have the following supplies: stationery (pencils, eraser, sharpener, ruler), mask and sanitiser.
“Students should arrive at the examination centre early - no later than 8:30 a.m., and parents and guardians are asked to encourage their children to do their best, and leave them with positive, uplifting words. Students should be dropped off at the security gate of the examination centre. Parents or guardians will not be permitted on the compound and are urged to observe all of the physical distancing and safety protocols in effect,” the statement said.
Parents were asked to collect students from the examination centres at 1 p.m. (BGIS)
