Public Schools to Host Virtual Open Houses
Government schools are inviting parents and prospective students to a series of virtual Open Houses in advance of registration for the 2021 – 2022 school year.
The Open Houses will take place on the ZOOM video-conferencing app and will be recorded and uploaded onto the Bermuda Public Schools YouTube channel and Facebook Page.
The online events begin next week and continue through to the end of January.
Interested persons will have the opportunity to ask questions before and after the sessions via a feedback form posted on the social media channels.
Schedules for the Open Houses can be found on the Ministry of Education’s website (www.moed.bm) as well as the Bermuda Public Schools Facebook page.
Commissioner of Education, Kalmar Richards said: “We invite parents and guardians to visit our schools virtually and meet school leaders and key staff members. Ask questions and leave confident that your children will be in good hands.
“The Department of Education is grateful for our dedicated school leaders who are pulling out all the stops to ensure that the annual Open House tradition continues even amid the pandemic.”
The Minister of Education, the Hon. Diallo Rabain, JP, MP said, “It is important to note that no primary schools will be closed during the 2021/22 school year. I am encouraging families to participate and ask questions during the virtual open houses in order to prepare for the upcoming school year. The public is also reminded that public consultation on proposed parish primary schools is ongoing and the consultation document is available at www.moed.bm”
Open House attendees are asked to ensure their cameras are on and that their full names are displayed.
Registration for the 2021 – 2022 school year takes place on the following dates:
PRESCHOOL & PRIMARY Tuesday, February 2 - Thursday, February 4, 2021
MIDDLE & SENIOR Tuesday, January 26 - Thursday, January 28, 2021
