Kingstown, St. Vincent (ONE NEWS SVG) – Some students in St. Vincent and the Grenadines may return to the physical classroom on May 25, 2020.


The Ministry of Education has proposed May 25 for the phased reopening of schools for grade six, form five and Technical and Vocational Education and Training students to prepare them for their external examinations.


Minister of Education Hon. St Clair “Jimmy” Prince told One News St. Vincent that the preliminary reopening date was May 18.


But, “we need more time to put everything in place to create a safe environment for students and teachers. Deep cleaning, sanitation, running water facilities and hand washing areas.”


The grade six students will be writing the Caribbean Primary Exit Assessment- CPEA, the fifth form students will be writing the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate Examination- CSEC and the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Students will be writing the Caribbean Vocational Qualification Examinations-CVQ.


The Ministry of Education is making the necessary arrangements to ensure that the students are prepared to write these examinations amidst the global pandemic.
