A key aim of the initiative of the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development is to sensitise parents and guardians as well as educators about the processes involved in the administration of the examination, which will be held on Tuesday, May 7.
Main facilitators for the sessions will be Senior Education Officer, Glyne Price, Education Officer, Everton Briggs, and Principal of Hillaby Turner’s Hall, Colin Cumberbatch. They will instruct persons on how to fill out the forms used in the BSSEE, including those for choice of school, deferral and special requests.
Parents and guardians have been urged by the Ministry of Education to attend any meeting convenient for them.
