Education Minister, Fayval Williams, says the government’s embarking on a pilot programme for the resumption of face to face classes in some 17 schools across 9 parishes.

The pilot is set to begin on November 9 and will run for two weeks.

She made the announcement during yesterday’s virtual media briefing.

Minister Williams says the decision to gradually re-introduce face to face classes in select schools was driven by data.

She notes the risk profiles of the schools being considered are low.
