Do not close Gilbert Institute
Gilbert Institute is one of four primary schools that could face potential closure. Though a final decision has not been made, we the Gilbert Institute Parent Teacher Association (PTA) believes that change is indeed needed within Bermuda’s education system, however this change should be via a systematic and structured plan to improve Bermuda’s educational system holistically.
That being said, we believe that Gilbert Institute plays a vital and important part in the quality education provided to its students and remains one of a few schools that provides a high level of quality of service for children that are hearing impaired, ADHD, ADD, and need assistance via the Learning Support Program.
As a direct result, we are creating the attached petition because we believe that education is a critical part of our community, and want to encourage Government to see, hear and witness that Gilbert Institute is a top notch school, that supports children in a small and supportive environment. “We are Gilbert”. Our little school gets tremendous support from the community, and we are asking you to continue supporting us in keeping Gilbert Institute open.
Please sign our petition and forward to your family, friends & co-workers.
On behalf of all the parents and committed teachers at Gilbert Institute....THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!
