Thirty-six educators have been appointed, on promotion, to the post of principal within the primary school system.

The new principals were presented today with letters of appointment by Minister of Education, Science, Technology and Innovation, Ronald Jones, at the Elsie Payne Complex, Constitution Road, St. Michael.

Jones said the appointments, which take effect from the next school term, “will further strengthen the delivery of pedagogy, improve administrative and leadership functions and assist in the overall implementation of Government’s education policy”.

Congratulating the new heads, he said theirs was “an awesome responsibility” that called for interaction not only in the school but within the community.

Urging them to seek assistance from the ministry and share ideas as well, the minister said: “We must do whatever it takes to ensure our system becomes a lot more responsive.”

An orientation programme for the new principals will be conducted during the Easter vacation.
