Education officials within the Ministry of Education are raising alarm over the recent heatwaves sweeping the nation and its potential impact on students and teachers as schools reopen.

Director of Education, Clare Browne, revealed discussions with Education Minister Daryll Matthew and the Board of Education to tackle this concern.

Browne acknowledged that excessive heat poses a challenge at the beginning of the school year.

Efforts to alleviate classroom heat are underway, with an appeal to the business community, service clubs, and individuals to adopt schools and make donations.

The ministry is addressing the reality of climate change, recognizing its ongoing impact on classrooms.

  1. Omg! Now? Appeal to community? What is the education levy collective supposed to be used for if not education? You had all summer to figure out something and now you’re scrambling for answers? In the mean time,teachers and children are suffering in the heat and crowded classrooms. Such lack of vision and incompetence is inexcusable.
