Schools in SVG will reopen on September 7

(Press Release) – The Ministry of Education, National Reconciliation and Information having consulted with major stakeholders has taken the decision to reopen schools one week later than was previously communicated.

Students will resume face to face engagement on September 7, 2020 while teachers will return to school on August 31, 2020 to assist with finalizing arrangements for the new school year.

Recognizing that the well-being of our nation’s children and educators is an absolute priority amidst a global pandemic, this week will allow teachers to be actively engaged with health professionals to review the individualized protocols and plan effectively for the new school year.

The Ministry of Education and the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines takes this opportunity to express solidarity with the family and people of Bequia who have lost a great custodian and advocate of education, Mrs. Dahlia Hanson-Ollivierre.

Let us all continue to work harmoniously to combat the challenges presented by COVID-19.
