Daryll Matthew apologizes to Baptist Academy

Education Minister Daryll Matthew

Statement from Daryll S Matthew, Minister for Education:

My comments in Parliament today intended to celebrate the decision of the administration of the Baptiste Academy for exercising leadership in ensuring that their staff is fully vaccinated in order to provide face to face learning to their students.

You will recognize that I prefaced my statement with “I AM TOLD….” Having spoken to the Principal of the Baptiste Academy, I am advised that I received inaccurate information regarding the process by which his staff received their

As such, I offer apologies to the Principal and Staff of the institution if any harm was done through my statement.

Let us, however, not miss the point. In order to return to a state of normalcy, vaccinations are a must.

#NotToo BigToApologise.

    • That is reason why you verify the information before you talk about anything. But he apologized which is the most important thing to do.

  1. That is why you verify the information before you talk about anything. But he apologized which is the most important thing to do.

  2. So you apologize, so what? You want a medal? Or you put down your name for a Sir?
    You were so quick to play the politics, you couldn’t even wait to verify. You have to know that the same teachers you and your boss trying to vilify are the same teachers you need to teach class when school reopens.
    Don’t be so hostile. Get off your this and your that and go and talk to them. That will make you look better. Not because you apologize for being the horses rear end.
    You are so into yourself, you can’t see what is needed here. Go and talk to your teachers. You did not have Carnival, no Independence celebrations, no Carifesta. You should have done a better job with the Education. It was your moment to shine. But no, Mr Big Head. Too busy being the sharpest knife in the draw. Disgusting.

  3. I am noticing that nothing Is confidential anymore. Whether I choose to be vaccinated or not Should be MY business. You guys take people personal business & go to Parliament and want to verbally abuse people because you know that you have Immunity in there but there Is another Parliament waiting on the whole bunch of you guys. I am so disappointed In you all.

  4. Maybe he feared a lawsuit heading his way….

    Politicians are always running their mouths about stuff they know little about.

  5. Chat too dam much. He had nothing constructive to talk about, was glad someone told him of Baptist Academy and before verifying the info jump and talk. So gullible.

  6. The gaffe of the minister is no different to Pearl this morning where she said a man had an arrangement with the state electricity company to make part payments on his outstanding bill and that they are proceeding to cut him off – only to hear the electricity company say nutten tarl go so!!!!
