EDUCATION Minister Jeffrey Lloyd said officials held meetings with education unions this week on the way forward for schools on certain islands that will return to face-to-face learning under a hybrid model.
EDUCATION Minister Jeff Lloyd said yesterday it is likely this year’s national examinations will be held later than usual as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
EDUCATION Minister Jeffrey Lloyd said his ministry is still awaiting the approval of the Ministry of Health as to when face-to-face learning can resume on certain islands.
WITH the publication of the national exam results at the beginning of the year, one thing is apparent. The performance of Bahamian children in these examinations continues to trend in the wrong direction. Of the 6,073 students who sat the Bahamas General Certificate of Secondary Education (BGCSE) exams, only 365 – an incredibly low six percent – received at least a grade C in five subjects.
WHILE all government schools will reopen for instruction on Monday January 4, students on four islands including New Providence will not report to school yet for face-to-face instruction.
EDUCATION Minister Jeffrey Lloyd said he is satisfied with the national examination results in spite of the challenges COVID-19 brought to the process.
