Eight schools which are part of the School Teacher Effectiveness Plans (STEPs) Pilot project will have Open Days for members of the public starting this week.
STEPs, a critical component of the Education Sector Enhancement Project II, was launched on October 10, 2017, and aims to transform learning and teaching in schools. The concept was framed within the context of identifying models and tools to guide teachers and schools towards being more effective. It is expected that this will result in the overall improvement in student performance, especially in literacy, numeracy and science.
St. Elizabeth Primary and Belmont Primary will have their open days on Friday, October 26, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.; while St. Martin’s Mangrove Primary and A. DaCosta Edwards Primary will have theirs on Monday, October 29, from 10:40 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., respectively.
Elliott Belgrave Primary, St. Philip Primary and Wilkie Cumberbatch Primary Schools will host their open days on Tuesday, October 30, all from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wesley Hall Junior School’s open days will be held on Tuesday, October 30, and Wednesday, October 31, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., daily.
The Open Days are part of Education Month activities which are being held under the theme: Building Excellence in Education through STEAM.
