By Aaron Humes: “Free paper bun” after Christmas for at least one set of Belize’s students, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Technology has told principals of secondary schools and directors of adult continuing education (ACE) programs.
Students set to take the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE), under the authority of the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC), will be allowed in limited circumstances and where necessary, face-to-face instruction starting after the usual Christmas holidays in January 2021.
CEO Dian Maheia wrote in the internal memo that this is subject to national health protocols.
This year’s examinations were delayed into the summer holiday due to COVID-19; indeed, in-person instruction at all schools has been delayed for some time as the pandemic took hold. Under Patrick Faber, the Ministry had prepared for the return of in-person instruction by equipping some schools with single desk-chairs and was preparing to roll out tablet grants for most primary and secondary school students to a total of 16,000.
