Govt: Schools To Be Understanding And Flexible To Returning Students

Govt: Schools To Be Understanding  And Flexible To Returning Students
February 29
14:28 2016

Government is asking schools around the nation to be understanding of the challenges being faced by those students resuming classes tomorrow in the wake of Cyclone Winston.

It is important for school managements, principals and staff to be flexible because the situation is far from normal.

Some students may not be in a position to wear uniforms and may have also lost books and other items during the cyclone.

Students must be allowed to wear casual clothes for the time being if uniforms are not available.

Teachers should also take into account the fact that for many young people, Cyclone Winston may have been a traumatic event and it is important to be understanding and compassionate.

Parents and students are urged to examine the accompanying list of schools that will be open from tomorrow and assume responsibility to attend classes at the normal time.

For those students of schools that have been destroyed or forced to close while essential repairs are carried out, parents are asked to make sure that alternative arrangements are made for them during the day.

It is essential for them to be under some form of adult supervision.

Please co-operate fully in this important national effort to get our young people back into the classroom to resume their studies.

Government is working as hard as possible to re-open those schools that cannot operate for the time being and seeks the patience and assistance of the community as this process continues.

The Ministry of Education is requesting parents to call their divisional numbers on the contacts listed below for further clarifications.
