The impact of the storms at the commencement of the school year brought new challenges.  The Government has expressed its commitment to rebuilding stronger more resilient schools, and to ensuring that all learners have the tools needed to be successful.   The Ministry will continue to make professional development opportunities available to all staff, continuously upgrade facilities in primary and high schools and expand the ICT inventory in schools.

The Ministry remains committed building a resilient and inclusive education system in which each learner can be successful. The Ministry of Education extends best wishes to all Grade Six achievers as they transition to high school.
