School Heads Must Be On Duty During School Holidays, Teachers Told
Permanent Secretary Alison Burchell.

The Ministry of Education in a circular has reminded heads of schools that they are expected to be on duty during the school holidays.

The circular signed by Permanent Secretary Alison Burchell said: “It is important for you to be available at the school as there is often building or renovation work happening, textbooks being delivered and it is always possible that there will be a natural disaster occurring during the cyclone season.

“Please note that the General Orders state: ‘No acting allowance will be payable if absence from duty is in excess of 15 consecutive days.’”

She said the head of school is a position of responsibility and they are expected to ensure all arrangements are in place if they are absent.

Those that are acting have to advise their District Offices and the HR Department of their absence so their allowance is ceased should they be absent for more than 15 consecutive days.
