BNTU President says more than 200 teachers affected by Hurricane Lisa; many still need help

Teachers still need help in both the recovery of their personal spaces at home and their classrooms. BNTU President Senator Elena Smith, says more than 200 teachers were affected one way or another. She appealed for assistance for those educators still putting back the pieces. We also asked about efforts to address psychosocial concerns. 

Likewise, schools are also being impacted and Senator Smith is hoping that those classroom challenges are quickly addressed.

Elena Smith, President, BNTU: “That was the reason why we had that meeting with the minister because we saw the condition of these schools. It’s really a disservice to our children to have them have to go into those school yards like that. I mean look at Wesley College, look at Wesley Lower, Belize Rural High the entire roof went and my goodness it was just so disheartening to see those things and I have not been able at this point in time to get feedback as to how many of those schools have been fully repaired and so that is something that we have to work on to get the stats to see how many of them have been fully repaired and how they have been managing since we last visited them.”
