The British Virgin Islands will soon implement teaching methods tailored to suit every child, Education Minister Dr Natalio Wheatley has said.
The former educator made the remarks at the start of Education Week 2019.
“The ability of each child is being considered and the Ministry of Education is planning with them in mind,” Dr Wheatley said.
“It is time for differentiated teaching and learning to be utilised to reach every child in our care.”
Meanwhile, the Education Minister also called on students to play their part towards their own education.
“In order to achieve excellence, students have to practice good habits of attending school regularly, review notes, complete assignments and keep up with teachers in each subject by reading ahead, ” he said.
“We all have power and potential to change our prescribed futures.”
The theme for this year’s Education Week is ‘Be Disciplined, Achieve Excellence’.
