Details have been provided about the grant from Government for students in the education system, from primary to junior high school.
In a recent bulletin, The Ministry of Education, Youth and Information said that all infant departments and primary-level schools will receive $2,500 per student; and all-age and junior high schools (up to grade 9) will receive up to $19,000 per student.
Also to be provided is a maintenance grant of $150,000 per school along with the janitorial grant of $250,000 and Internet/telephone grant of $60,000.
The increased amounts to schools are said to be in keeping with the non-mandatory fee policy which commenced in September 2016.
Students, who benefit from the Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH), will receive literature books, while $2,000.00 will be allocated to cover identification (ID) and uniform-related items. Book vouchers valued at $2,000 each will be provided for the neediest students.
