Upgrades and maintenance of school plants and furniture will take place during the summer as is customary, utilizing the Education Levy operated by the Board of Education.

The country’s leader visited the Glanvilles Secondary School on Monday to assess the situation with the school’s administration; proposed upgrades will be undertaken during the summer months.

The Cabinet invited several teams that are responsible for events production to appear before it. The industry professionals reported that during the time of COVID, their equipment remained unused and as a consequence have now failed by simply not being used.

 The industry professionals also indicated that the same experience has caused other industry specialists in other Caribbean countries to have their sound systems fail, their generators fail, their electric lights and other sensitive equipment to fail because of non-use during COVID.
