Classes for senior students at Elmore Stoute High School resume today after being postponed on Tuesday, May 21.

This according to Chief Education Officer Connie George who assured that the postponement was ‘nothing of major concern’.

“The air conditioning unit was not up and running. We had a slight electrical problem and the building was hot, so we just decided we wouldn’t have them come at that time of the day,” George told BVI News.

She added: “We realise this time of the year it’s extremely hot and if we do not have the air condition, taking the children there would not have been beneficial at all and the people were working on the building to fix the problem so it didn’t make sense.”

With all the issues rectified, George did confirm the resuming of classes.

“It’s all fixed and up and going again,” the Chief Education Officer said.

Concerns were raised on Tuesday when the school released a bulletin stating that classes were “due to unforeseen reasons”.

    Dem busy talking bout immigration policy!! Look at where dis generation is heading. No regard for God nor man. principal praying students dont care making noise disrespecting God. SOME teachers both exp. contract teachers indeginuous teachers, in the room or walking pass the rooms and no one seems to care. Young teachers employed without proper training. That is ting to be concerned about. Some teachers laid back or absent more than present.Yet still, they make the most noise and pretend they are doing so much. Administrators passing teachers without even a civil hello; pretending to be too busy. That is of concern. The hyprocisy is AWWFUL. if teachers do not show common courtesy to each other how would the students do any better. Some of them in Ministry not to better either. We are too pretensious.
