| 19/08/2022 | 15 Comments

(CNS): The Department of Education Services (DES) has released the back to school dates for all government schools, including primary and secondary schools, the Lighthouse School and the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC). Primary schools are scheduled to reopen for all students on Thursday, 25 August. High schools and CIFEC are scheduled to reopen on Tuesday, 30 August.

Orientation Days begin on 24 August and parents are required to accompany their children on their allocated day, which is mandatory for any student entering a government school for the first time.

Officials said the orientation sessions provide students and their parents with essential information for successful integration into the new learning environment.

Meanwhile, examination results for outgoing Year 12 students will be available for collection from 9:00am to 5:00pm on Monday, 5 September. Students or parents in Grand Cayman should collect results from the Department of Education Services. Those in Cayman Brac should go to the Layman E Scott Sr High School. Results will only be given to people possessing a receipt showing that any outstanding fees have been paid.

Anyone with outstanding fees should have already received invoices from their schools. However, those who are uncertain or require a new invoice should call the Ministry of Education’s Finance Unit at 244-1804 on Grand Cayman or 948-2226 on Cayman Brac.

To pay outstanding fees, take invoices to the Treasury Cashier in the reception area of the Government Administration Building or the Cayman Brac Teacher’s Centre. Once receipts are issued, students/parents may proceed to the DES or the Layman E. Scott Senior High School to collect results.

    Glad to see solutions to the traffic were discussed this summer. yeh right. I haven’t heard or seen anything from the education minister about any thing much less traffic. Her only concern is getting reelected. Should have put elvis in when we had a chance

    The sign at the junction of Frank Sound Road boasts about ‘a world class education”.
    Such a shame that with all the money being spent on education we do not have enough ‘world class’ teachers, or leaders…..and the schools still underperform.
    Please, please, please cut the hype and concentrate more on the area that has been neglected for far too long…..TEACHING and LEARNING.

      World class teachers can’t do much for children that don’t have world class PARENTS.

    At the start of each school year, before they buy uniforms parents are reminded about ‘a dress code for students”.
    Unfortunately there are no such guidelines for teachers. There are an increasing number of parents who see ‘double standards’ set by those who should be setting a better example for our children.
    If a male teacher wears his shirt ‘out’ there is no problem, yet if a male student does the same he gets punished, if there is a problem, wear a bush jacket.
    For health and safety reasons students are required to wear shoes (which have to be plain black) so why do some teachers wear sandals?
    We have other issues with: jeans(especially yellow), coloured hair ( green, blue, red-white and black),night club clothes including tight pants and revealing blouses etc
    Some staff at CHHS are among the worst culprits.

      It’s preparing the kids for an important life lesson. Your boss gets perks you don’t get. When you get older and you’re the boss, you get to wear sandals to work.

    Every year they announce this about a week before term starts. Do they not schedule this at least a year in advance so parents can plan life ?

    Or do they do so it feel they have to remind some folk ?

    I am already dreading the horrendous traffic that will return.

      And vehicle emissions to skyrocket, accidents to increase, and standstill traffic.

      We had an entire summer to implement more remote work, stagger start and ending times, and mandate bussing.

      Nope. Not in Cayman.

        I’m so sorry you expected efficiency and innovation from our world class civil service.

        Best we can offer you is the same tired garbage as last year.
