TTUTA concerned about students’ safety, but Ministry happy with turnout

Standard five students returned to school on Monday to prepare to sit the Secondary Entrance Examination on August 20.

Some 19,000 pupils returned to classes for the first time since COVID-19 forced a shutdown of the education system.

However, while pupils were facilitated at their Primary schools, there was some concern with the readiness of some learning institutions as they did not receive all their deliverables to ensure a smoother process with the students.

TTUTA President Antonia De Freitas told News Power Now this morning that the Association had some concern with the issues still facing some of the Primary Schools.

She said in some instances Principals had to seek alternative solutions to ensure they were ready to house the students.

However, Minister of Education Anthony Garcia said that it would be more prudent to concentrate on the positive aspects of the students’ return to their schools.

Speaking with News Power Now this morning, he lamented the fact that the focus was being placed on the problems that faced some schools and not all that was achieved by the Government in facilitating the students’ return.

He said he was happy with the turn out by both teachers and students yesterday.
