Longer holidays also for non-teaching staff
WILLEMSTAD - School Janitors, administration, and system administrators may go on vacation just like the teachers when school is closed. This is according to the Minister of Education, Irene Dick.
Non teaching staff so far has been obliged to work during the school holidays. Like all other officials. Their union, STSK has asked the minister to make the holidays coincide with the teachers. During school holidays there is still nothing to do according to them.
The Roman Catholic Central school board, the largest education employer on the island, said that they are not pleased with the decision of the Minister. Teachers often work during regular holidays and will need the support of the non-teaching staff.
