Smooth start


Share post:

The buses were rolling, the new Constitution River Terminal was packed, one school brought a brand new uniform on stream, while another was forced to close early for industrial cleaning.

As thousands of children headed back to the classroom on Monday, there was a generally smooth start to the 2018-2019 academic term.

But at Bay Primary School in Bayville, St Michael, classes ended well before the 3 p.m. bell to allow completion of industrial cleaning there. A Barbados Government Information Service statement gave no further details as to the cause.

At The Ellerslie School, while most students came decked out in the new school uniforms, some parents vented their frustration about sourcing the new material which was only available at one outlet. (DB)
