MOE assures religious boards that their voices will be heard

The Ministry of Education said it has noted the concerns shared in the media, that Denominational Boards are not represented on the Committee formed to make specific recommendations on the way forward for SEA and the Concordat.

The MOE, in a release this afternoon, said “The denominational boards of education are our key stakeholders, and will form part of an important sub-group that the substantive committee will engage.”

The MOE said representation is present on the committee from religious bodies and denominational schools and further clarification and refining of feedback from Boards, received during the National Consultation of 2020 will be a critical part of the committee’s work, which involves examination of the very agreement by which the Board’s schools are governed.

The MOE assures the denominational boards of education that this review process will not happen without the direct engagement with and contribution from all member groups.
