The Ministry of Education, on Friday, announced that the opening of four schools under its auspices will be delayed.

A press statement said that Georgetown Secondary School will reopen on Wednesday, Sept. 4, while Calliaqua Anglican School, Kingstown Anglican School, and Park Hill Government School will reopen on Monday, Sept. 9.

“Parents and guardians can be assured that adequate preparation would be made to make up for the loss of instructional time in the affected schools,” the ministry said, but offered no explanation for the delay.

The statement said that all other schools under the auspices of the Ministry of Education will reopen as scheduled on Monday, Sept. 2.
