MOETVT Pays Tribute to the Late FO Zella Symonette

Ministry of Education and Technical and Vocational Training staff gathered in the foyer of the Ivy Dumont Building for a memorial for the late Zella Symonette. Mrs. Symonette, a 40-year veteran of the public service joined the Ministry’s Accounts Department in 2015. She passed on December 14th, 2022.

 

Minister Glenys Hanna Martin extended condolences on behalf of the Ministry to the children and extended family of the beloved Financial Officer.  Noting that she had not gotten an opportunity to work closely with Ms. Symonette, the Minister said that her superb work ethic and professional reputation remains undeniably evident throughout the ministry.

 

Mrs. Symonette is survived by her husband, two children and extended family. Her funeral is scheduled for Friday, December 30th, 2022 at Mount Tabour Baptist Church.

Public Private Preschool Partnership Programme

The Ministry of Education and Technical and Vocational Training hosted a press conference and contract signing with preschool directors to present them with the contracts for the 2022-2023 academic year on December 1st, 2022.

The Public Private Preschool Partnership Programme incentivizes directors of private preschools to increase the enrollment of children from families who are unable to afford to pay for preschool by presenting them with vouchers of up to $2,000 per child.

Minister of Education, Hon. Glenys Hanna Martin underscored the importance of the initiative during the press conference.

“Education is the key to our future. If we do this right, our country will be prosperous, successful, harmonious, peaceful; our young people will be creative, confident, innovative, and will do well in life and our country will do better,” the Minister said.

Private preschool directors signed contracts to confirm their commitment to work collaboratively to provide quality preschool education to each child enrolled in the programme.

Improving pre-primary education access by 2030 is a mission for The Bahamas, as the country agreed to the United Nations Sustainable Development goal regarding early childhood education.

Students, who often travel home via public transportation, have been given a much more convenient route to get home. The Ministry of Education and Technical and Vocational Training launched a new bussing programme on Tuesday January 3, 2023 at select junior and senior high schools throughout New Providence.

 

The initiative, which was announced at the S.C. McPherson Junior High School on Thursday January 5, 2022, will allow vetted bus drivers to collect the student passengers directly from the school’s campuses and seamlessly passage them along their usual bus route. The purpose of the new programme is to provide a safe transportation alternative for students who usually rely on public transportation to get home.

 

On hand to announce the new programme was Chief Superintendent Dr. Cheswell Hanna, who is the Coordinator of the School Policing Programme; along with Permanent Secretary Mrs. Lorraine Symonette Armbrister. Also in attendance were members of the Bahamas Union of Teachers and other executives of the Ministry.

The Ministry of Education and Technical and Vocational Training Platinum Jubilee Subcommittee awards first and second place winners of the Platinum Jubilee Art Competition, held in March, 2022 for public school students.  Students were invited to submit artistic depictions of the late Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in commemoration of her Platinum Jubilee.  The winning painting was presented to His Excellency, the Duke of Cambridge, during the Platinum Jubilee visit to The Bahamas in March, 2022.  Winners received gift certificates for the Paint Place and a tablet during a brief presentation at the Ministry on Wednesday, December 21st, 2022.  From the left, Keino Demerit, Kiyshanna Hepburn, C.R.
