Two Days To Be Added to School Year


The Ministry of Education will compensate for the loss of two days to the school year, due to last week’s strike by teachers, by limiting the mid-term break to Labour Day only.
In a release Tuesday (May 11), the Ministry pointed out that Labour Day, Monday, May 24, is a national holiday and no additional days should be given, before or after the national holiday, which means that schools will be closed only on Labour Day for mid-term.
The Ministry also stated that a decision has been made not to pursue docking the salaries of teachers who had not turned up for work on the two days of the strike.
