No school on Wednesday and Thursday
WILLEMSTAD - In connection with the elections on Wednesday, October 5, there will be no school on that day and on Thursday, October 6. This is according to a decision from the Minister of Education Irene Dick. Several schools serve as polling stations.
The Protestant Schools are not happy with the extra day off. According to the Director Miguel Goede, the teachers are skilled enough to make up for the missed hours. The Catholic Schools have no formal plan to compensate for the additional day off.
Director of the Catholic Schools, Lisette van Lamoen-Garmers said that today they will discuss this.
