By BBN Staff: On Saturday, January 8, Area Representative for Cayo North Minister Michel ‘Micho’ Chebat made his rounds visiting and donating basic cleaning supplies, including alcohol and chlorox, as well as hand gloves and disposable masks to different schools in the Cayo North constituency. The donations were made in preparation for the return of children to schools for hybrid learning today, Monday, January 10, 2022.
Schools that benefitted from the donations are: Sacred Heart Primary School in San Ignacio, Arms of Love Primary School in the Kontiki area, Center for Employment Training in San Ignacio, Bullet Tree Roman Catholic Primary School and Bullet Tree Seventh Day Adventist Primary School.
In making the donation, Minister Chebat posted on social media that “It was a pleasure to reach out to the different schools in Cayo North and assist them with basic cleaning supplies and masks for their school population.”
The Ministry of Education had been hoping to resume face-to-face classes in January of this year but has had to settle for the hybrid formula due to the rapid spread of the suspect Omicron variant of COVID-19. The compromise agreed to is that schools will have a set of students attending in-person education for one week while the other set will have classes virtually. The two sets of students will then switch the following week.
“2022 cannot be yet another year of disrupted learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re putting the education and the best interests of our children, first,” noted the Ministry of Education in making the announcement to hybrid learning.
