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.

Mister Speaker, my statement is titled. Thank you God. Mister Speaker, I want to take this opportunity to thank God for keeping His guiding hands on this Government, the unconventional Government. In other words, we walk by faith and not by sight—this is what we mean by unconventional. God lead, we trust Him and follow!
