Education Minister Anthony Garcia will meet with stakeholders in the coming weeks, to discuss what can be done about the low turnout of students during the week of Carnival.
While there was a high turnout of teachers on Ash Wednesday, the vast majority of primary and secondary school students were not present.
The Education Ministry issued this statement today.
Education Minister Anthony Garcia is expressing concern about the registration system for primary schools, which results in parents having to line up in the wee hours of the morning to get registration forms.
The Minister says this must not continue and that all parents and guardian should be given forms.
The following is a statement from the Ministry of Education.
