Parents are expected to hold protests this morning at the Plymouth Anglican Primary School and Scarborough Secondary School demanding that all longstanding issues be resolved immediately.
The school is one of a few not carded to open today, on the first day of the new academic term.
In the division’s release yesterday, Secretary of Education, Research, and Technology, Zorisha Hackett, ensured concerned stakeholders at the Plymouth Anglican Primary School and also Scarborough Secondary School that their issues are being actively addressed.
She said repair works have commenced at these institutions and are expected to be completed soon.
“I want to reassure the concerned stakeholders at both the Plymouth Anglican Primary School and Scarborough Secondary School that their issues have always been on our radar, and that we at DERTech are unwavering in our determination to address them comprehensively.”
She said discussions between the division and PTA on this matter have taken place.
Regarding other repair works across the island, Hackett said that crucial repairs have been completed, with minor repairs and outstanding projects scheduled to continue during afternoons and weekends until they are satisfactorily completed.
Hackett said efforts to resolve the issues caused by aging schools will continue, ensuring that no child is left behind.
There are also reports of unfinished repair works at the Parlatuvier Anglican Primary School.
