Friday March 09, parents of students Ghislaine Rogers and Elie Gibs of Grand Case were able to discuss with Vice President Yawo Nyuiadzi, in the absence of President Gibbs and Vice President Annick Pétrus, currently in Guadeloupe for meet the rector of Academy.
Vice-President Nyuiadzi was accompanied by Territorial Adviser Jean-Raymond Benjamin, Deputy Director General in charge of the Sustainable Development Pole, Romain Perreau, Medhi Boucard Director of Education, Kenroy Bryan, Director of the Territorial Fund for Works School Board (CTOS) and François-Xavier Binvel, Deputy Chief of Staff of the President.
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.
A meeting is therefore scheduled, Monday, March 12, at the Hotel of the Collectivité with the representatives of the parents of students of Grand Case to present the projects of work.
More generally, the community has made a commitment to communicate regularly on the progress of school building sites. President Gibbs announced in November, that he would not accept a back to school discount at the beginning of September 2018, and that the Collectivité would make every effort to move in this direction with the Rectorate and services of State.
