LT Gay students still at four locations when school resumes


Share post:

School will resume for students of the Lawrence T. Gay Memorial Primary on Tuesday under the same arrangements as last term.

The Spooner’s Hill, St Michael campus has been affected by an environmental issue which forced the Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training to find alternative accommodation.

Earlier this week, president of the Barbados Union of Teachers, Rudy Lovell, said they were awaiting the latest update from the Ministry.

Classes will be constituted as follows:

  • All students of classes that were accommodated at the school’s Spooner’s Hill location during Term 1 will report to that site.
  • All students of Classes 2 and 3 will continue to be accommodated at The Church of Christ the King, Rock Dundo, St Michael.
  • All Class 4 students will continue to be accommodated at Sharon Moravian Church Hall, St Thomas.
  • Reception students will continue to be accommodated at Grace Hill Moravian Church, Spooner’s Hill, St Michael.

The Ministry of Education will continue to provide transportation, as required, to shuttle students to The Church of Christ the King and Sharon Moravian Church Hall.

Parents/guardians who are desirous of accessing transportation for their children/wards are advised to have them report to the school’s Spooners’ Hill location by 7:45 a.m.

The Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training thanks staff, parents/guardians and students for their understanding and cooperation as it systematically investigates and eliminates the possible sources of the reported offensive odour.  (PR/SAT)
