Denominational schools across the country are expected to begin receiving their funding from government within the next few days.
Education Minister Dr Nyan Gadsy-Dolly said “Everything is set for this week and we are working with that timeline.”
This good news follows complaints from the Denominational Boards of Education and Principals of Denominational Schools that they were running out of supplies like cleaning material, stationery, etc.
The Boards said there is a disparity in the distribution of funding and that principals and teachers in Denominational Primary Schools are struggling for resources to provide printed material for students who cannot access online learning.
They said only large and small Government Primary Schools were receiving supplies of household and hardware items and stationery among other items. Distribution began last week.
Minister Gadsby-Dolly admitted “The schools which are receiving now are the government primary schools”.
But she assured that the distribution is on stream for all.
