Press Release:– As the roadmap for the reopening of our schools has been outlined, the United Workers Party National Women’s Arm wishes the principals, students, teachers and support staff a productive new academic year.
They have been committed to this reopening process from the inception and we will now see most of our schools begin to reopen.
The tremendous amount of work which has been undertaken in schools to ensure that the students are provided with a safe environment must be acknowledged.
We the women are pleased with what has been done and the extensive health and safety measures that have been put in place to provide the best possible educational experience for our children in a safe and welcoming environment.
A few weeks ago, The Ministry of Education unveiled a plan to prioritize the health and safety of students and staff and has continued to provide clear guidance to all schools on what is required.
They also continue to support schools with any adaptations they need to properly equip the premises.
Our students have shown great resilience in facing the unprecedented reality of what is considered to be the new normal.
It has been five months since they have been in a formal classroom and some are looking forward to the face-to-face instruction which is still of utmost importance.
We believe that no child should be left behind as school perseverance and educational success are the keys to their development and to our future.
Our schools will look different on Monday with new signage and procedures in place, but what remains the same is the excitement from our principals, teachers and support staff to teach and support our children.
We are so thankful to have a Government that cares and is committed to creating and maintaining a positive school culture that will be conducive to teaching and learning in this new era.
All the Best in the New School Year!
