Return to School in St. Maarten on January 7th 2019 instead of January 2nd 2019
The Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, Minister Wycliffe Smith has denied the request to extend the Christmas Vacation Schedule from January 2nd to January 7th 2019 twice because "school vacation schedules are created three years in advance" and it "had been provided to school boards at the time".
Our WITU President sent in a request on the Teacher's behalf, it was denied. Our Milton Peters College Students sent in a request on student's behalf, it was denied.
Here is an alternative proposal:
What about closing school three (3) days later in the Summer Vacation Schedule 2019 and adding those days in January 2019. We are
humbly asking our Minister to consider his decision made.
