Mr. Speaker, last year, I announced my intention to examine the additional year of instruction in our public secondary schools, with the intention of deciding whether it would continue. Mr. Speaker, I held public meetings, which yielded useful feedback on the topic. I was able to confirm that, indeed, there were students in the system who benefitted from the additional year as well as students who were being held back by the additional year.

Minister Speaker, thank you for this opportunity to provide an update on some education matters. The main areas of focus during our professional development sessions is physical literacy for all and critical literacy. To promote physical literacy, Sports for Life Team and the BVI Olympic Committee graciously donated physical education equipment to the schools. I express my sincere appreciation to their generous donations. In addition to the training that took place in August and November 2019, the final training is scheduled for 4th – 15th May, 2020. We also held our annual Excellence in Teaching workshops for teachers on Tortola and Virgin Gorda also as a part of on-going professional development.

Educational institutions perform important roles in the development of any society and to show appreciation for this, we often acknowledge the contributions of principals and teachers. But there is a small but growing segment of persons that needs to be celebrated. Those are our school counsellors.
