June 1, 2017: In his quest to ensure that no child should be denied access to education on the basis of a disability, the Honourable Anthony Garcia, Minister of Education has identified the Penal/Quinam Government Primary School as the educational institution where five year old Khalesi Webb, who has Spina bifida, can attend.
Minister Garcia said he has been assured by the School Supervisor II for the St. Patrick Education District that everything will be put in place to ensure the comfort of the student. The parent, together with the line supervisor (School Supervisor I) will visit the school on June 1 to get a firsthand view of the premises.
Once the parent is satisfied, Minister Garcia said the child will be allowed to start school from September 2017.
