Ministry Of Education Engages Parents On The Enhanced Curriculum Pilot For Grades 4 And 6
The Ministry of Education has embarked on an outreach program featuring school meetings that will
sensitize parents and guardians of primary school-aged children to the New Enhanced Curriculum.
Mr. Francil Morris, Deputy Chief Education Officer, explained the reason for these sessions as he addressed those in attendance at one of the sessions held at the Beach Allen Primary School on Wednesday, May 12, 2021.
“The Ministry of Education has embarked upon a number of sessions for parents and guardians as it relates to our Enhanced Curriculum, that is being piloted currently on grades four and six. We have to make sure that whatever
we do our education is relevant so that we can provide support to all our students,” he said.
The Enhanced Curriculum was designed to assist the Ministry of Education in achieving policy goal 3.2 which seeks to “strengthen the quality and relevance of education at all levels to improve student outcomes” as well as Programme Area 2: Curriculum and Assessment as outlined in the Ministry of Education 2017-2021 Education Sector Plan.
“We [Ministry of Education] want to ensure that all of our students are successful at whatever they can do”, noted Mr. Morris.
The Ministry of Education is committed to engaging parents and guardians throughout St. Kitts and Nevis on any new initiatives that are being implemented within the schools.
