Ministry of Education stands by school re-opening plan, lists schools allowed to re-open later

Posted: Sunday, November 6, 2022. 9:57 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: In an addendum to its press statement of this afternoon and in response to objections by the Belize National Teachers’ Union, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Technology (MoECST) states archly, “FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT AND CONFUSION, PLEASE NOTE that the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Technology (MoECST) is the only legal authority that can cancel or suspend classes.”

Thus, it appears tonight that most schools, including in the Belize District, will re-open as announced on Monday, November 7, rather than a week later as claimed by the BNTU.

However, there is a list of schools in the Belize and Cayo Districts which will be allowed to re-open later for various reasons, and a list was sent this evening enumerating these.

In the Cayo District, Cotton Tree Roman Catholic Primary School and Our Lady of Guadalupe Roman Catholic Primary School in Belmopan will re-open on Tuesday, November 8, and Wednesday, November 9, respectively.

St. John’s College High School and Junior College will re-open on Tuesday.

Returning on Wednesday are Bethany Baptist Pre-School; Grace Primary School; Small World Pre-School; St John Vianney and St Martin de Porres Roman Catholic; Stella Maris School and Unity Presbyterian Primary School.

Re-opening on Thursday, November 10, are Belize Rural Primary School at Double Head Cabbage, Belize District; Burrell Boom Methodist; All Saints Anglican in Belize City; Calvary Temple Primary; Ebenezer Methodist; Queen Street Baptist; Sadie Vernon Technical High School; Pallotti High School and St Catherine Academy; St Therese Roman Catholic Primary; Wesley College and Wesley Lower and Upper Schools.

Gwen Lizarraga High School, Holy Redeemer Roman Catholic Primary, and St Luke Methodist Primary all return next Monday, November 14.

If your school’s name is not listed here, you are expected to report to school bright and early Monday morning.
