The Ministry of Education, on Thursday, announced that that school will reopen on May 25, 2020 for all students writing external examinations.

“The school day will commence at 9:30 a.m. and conclude at 2:30 pm. On-line teaching continues for all other students,” the ministry said.

“The Ministry of Education is collaborating with the Ministry of Transport and Works to assist students commuting to and from school daily,” a statement continued.

“We are all reminded of our obligation to maintain a clean and safe environment for all. Let us continue to work harmoniously to combat the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic,” the ministry said.

Schools in St. Vincent and the Grenadines closed one week ahead of the Easter break in April and have remained closed since.

  1. Boy oh boy! I really do hope and wish for the best. Hope it isn’t a mistake the Ministry of Education is making. While the students of Secondary School might observe the Social Distancing protocols, and I say MIGHT, I very much doubt the Primary School students will. Most children who attend the primary school in my community do not listen well at all. They seem not to understand matters of a serious nature. While the country has had 17 cases thus far, this does not mean Covid-19 is not being passed on unnoticed by the health authorities. A number of persons not being tested for Covid-19 may be passing on the virus. Parents, guardians, and all of us, hope for the best for our nation’s children. Hope that our children going back to school is not a recipe for national disaster. Covid-19 pandemic is not over yet.

  2. Anguilla is the only Island in the Caribbean that is Covid free, they had 3 cases that has already been recovered over 45 days now.

  3. The 22nd Covid-19 case in Grenada is that of an 8 year old child. So contrary to what some may think, children are at HIGH risk too for contracting Covid-19. Therefore, I hope the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Health really know what they are doing in reopening schools.

    It is not a mistake those kids are well grown up to practice social distance. Am living in ANGUILLA AND THE SCHOOL’S IS OPEN ONLY FOR GRADE 5 AND GRADE6 STUDENTS AND ALSO FOR THE SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS FROM 5,6, AND THE SIXTH FORM.
