After a silent march, the parents of the students exchanged with the representatives of the Collective who came to meet them on the site of Grand Case. The discussion was constructive, the Community as parents wishing to improve the conditions of reception of the students of the two schools concerned. Vice President Nyuiadzi acknowledged that in the urgency of the many school records to be processed, the link with the parents of students has not been sufficiently maintained.
For better information, the Collective intends to set up a space for dialogue with the teaching staff and parents' representatives to keep them informed of progress or difficulties encountered in the context of the reconstruction of schools. Briefings on the work will thus be frequently organized.
Parents were also informed of the upcoming start of work in Grand Case schools. The shipyard took a few days late because of the swell and the impossibility for the freighters to deliver the ordered materials.
During this exchange, the Community is firmly committed to responding quickly to the expectations of parents and teachers, including the conditions of reopening of the kindergarten Ghislaine Rogers in September and the reopening of the school restaurant kindergartens.
