Happy to be back at school


Share post:

Some of the senior students at the Princess Margaret Secondary School said they were pleased to be back in their familiar learning environment when they returned to school today to complete their School Based Assessments (SBAs).

John Cox said he could not complete his SBA for building and furniture technology at home because it involved mixing concrete and creating stepping stones.

His classmate Ju-Sean Shepherd agreed, noting that they were also going to be tested on how they used the power tools and this was something e-learning could not facilitate.

Both students will be taking the Caribbean Secondary Examination Certificate (CSEC) examinations next month.

This is the first time students returned to the physical compound since March 18 when the Hilary Term ended, and new public health protocols to protect against the spread of COVID-19 are in place.

Students had their temperatures checked and hands sanitised by the school guard on entering the compound.

There are sanitising stations dotted about, classes are smaller, desks are wider spaced, school hours are shorter and there is a limit to numbers at the facility. (SB)
