"Notice to all parents of children who are blind and visually impaired.
The Trinidad and Tobago Blind Welfare Association will be reopening its domestic services for children who are blind and visually impaired at the beginning of the new school term in January of 2017. This service will offer children who are blind and visually impaired to reside at the School for Blind Children at Pax vale Santa Cruz. Parents will drop off their children on a Monday starting at 6 AM and collect them on a Friday no later than 6 PM within the given week.
Parents who are unable to have their children attend school and return home on a daily basis can leave their children in the care of the staff of the Association at no cost to the parent. The Association will be responsible for all children who are blind and visually impaired from 2.30 PM and will conclude at 8.30 AM each day. The Ministry of Education will be responsible for all children who are blind and visually impaired from 8.00 AM through 3.00 PM each day.
