By Aaron Humes: While the Ministry of Education had been set on re-opening schools this past Monday, the spike in COVID-19 cases thwarted that.
But Chief Executive Officer Deborah Domingo told us that she remains “very optimistic” that schools can re-open soon – because both the academic and the general community have been working hard toward it.
“The safety of our students will always be a concern. But what I have seen in terms of the effort being made by principals and teachers is just absolutely tremendous. The reports that I have received in terms of the community support has been absolutely impactful and quite positive. So, I am very, very optimistic. Because even where schools are struggling and members of the community are able to assist, they are stepping up to the plate, more so now than ever before. And that, I think, is a cause to celebrate and to be very optimistic,” Dr. Domingo told us at a recent event.
Minister of Education, Patrick Faber said he is aiming for the traditional first Monday in September as the next target for re-opening, pending any new swerves in the trajectory of COVID-19 in Belize.
