The Ministry of Education, Human Resource Development and Religious Affairs informs the public of the delayed reopening of 10 schools, which are currently under repair.
During the summer vacation period, this ministry commenced major works totalling EC$3 million and minor works, in the sum of EC$70,000, in its continued efforts to ensure that school environments are conducive to teaching and learning.
Officers from this ministry, together with officers from the Ministry of Infrastructure Development, Public Utilities, Energy, Transport and Implementation and personnel from the Financial Complex Limited, have been working tirelessly to address all critical maintenance needs for schools.
Although a significant amount of work has been completed on some facilities, to address issues flagged as the most critical, there are still some important restorative activities to be undertaken and additional works, which must be completed before students can return to some of our institutions. Consequently, this ministry duly informs the public of the adjusted reopening dates for affected schools, which are as follows:
