spot_img

Education Minister Shawn Edward, declaring school security a priority, has assured parents, students and staff that his Ministry had received the recommendations from a recent security audit and was implementing them.

“Creating a safe and conducive school environment remains a major priority for us at the Ministry of Education,” Edward explained in a back-to-school address aired Sunday night.

He also appealed to parents to prioritise their children’s education while urging students to make the most of education opportunities at their disposal.

The Minister stated that parents should not leave their children’s education entirely to principals and teachers.

” Yours is an invaluable role in the nurturing of your child,” Edward explained.

In Sunday night’s address, the Minister observed that although there were work programme challenges in rehabilitating school buildings, all primary and secondary schools will reopen on Monday, September 4.

  1. Our wise Prime Minister make available funds to carry out school refurbishment or enhancements just 2 weeks before school starts. This is appalling from you minister with regards to numerous deficiencies within our school system. Your department needs to be more practical and aggressive when it comes to not flex with certain policies. Your educational sector will shame this island big time in the near future. Currently the public school system going to reduce to nothing, zero standard. A complete analysis should be immediately address not just security.

  2. Would love to hear the ground breaking recommendations for school security that the officers of the RSLPF couldn’t tell us therefore we had to pay Ausbert Regis a hefty consultancy fee for.

  3. ” … Education Minister Shawn Edward, declaring school security a priority, has assured parents, students and staff that his Ministry had received the recommendations from a recent security audit and was implementing them.”
    That should have been implemented YEARS ago … Why only now?
    Again … no time frame mentioned.
    Words! Words! Words! = No action!
    I hate to be negative – but I can read between the lines, and between those lines lie no assurity or confidence.
