The Ministry of Education is assuring Barbadians that everything is being done to ensure schools are safe for the resumption of face-to-face classes.
Chief Education Officer Dr Ramona Archer-Bradshaw said Friday night that repairs and cleaning were ongoing at schools but all should be ready for February 21.
“Industrial cleaning of the schools started on February 7. We recognised that there were some schools that required minor repairs so we have personnel working on those schools to bring them up to speed for February 21. But the schools that required those minor repairs would be ready for the 21st,” she said.
Archer-Bradshaw said the ministry was satisfied with the progress of the work, pointing out that officials would be conducting tours this week to get a first-hand look at the state of the schools. (SB)
