Students of Bishops College Kingstown have expressed mixed emotions about the resumption of face to face learning.
After a little over two years of online instructions the students of the school returned to in-person classes on yesterday, Monday September,5.
On the first day of each school term students and teachers head to the St George’s Cathedral for a general assembly, and yesterday was no exception.
“I am excited about the reopening because I am now in Form 5,” one student told SEARCHLIGHT.
“ I was not mentally prepared at first but listening to all the work I have to do, I have to put my mind to it”, Leah Millington said.
Another student said it was stressful coping with online learning and hopes that this new academic year will bring some sort of change.
“It’s less frustrating… I have a better opportunity to understand better and explain myself more clearly with face to face school keeping,” said Kelise Stowe.
At the recess break around 10:30 a.m, students were seen mingling and socialising with their friends after the extended period being away from school.
Last year, the school lost its principal, Cecilia Akers-King. The school is now headed by Insa Duncan with Rosmond Richardson as Deputy Principal.
