All public educational institutions – nursery, primary, secondary, special and tertiary – will close at noon tomorrow, Wednesday, March 18, to facilitate an online consultation on COVID-19, led by Minister of Education, Technological and Vocational Training, Santia Bradshaw.
The virtual meeting will be streamed live on YouTube at 2:00 p.m., to allow school personnel to view the proceedings, either at respective schools or other locations.
Persons are required to go to YouTube.com/mrdbarbados, and click on the Live Link. Presentations will be made by representatives from the Ministry of Health and Wellness, the Pan American Health Organization and the Ministry of Education.
Principals/directors, teachers/instructors, non-teaching and clerical staff and school meals workers are invited to log on. Private schools are also invited to take part in this exercise.
An email address has been created – firstname.lastname@example.org – so that school personnel can submit their questions, which will be addressed during the consultation.
