- 03 October, 2017:
Government aims at creating a synergy with all school leaders and educators so as to chart the way towards the successful implementation of the ongoing reform in the education sector. The reform aims at achieving the highest possible standards in the education of our youths.
The Minister of Education and Human Resources, Tertiary Education and Scientific Research, Mrs Leela Devi Dookun-Luchoomun, made this statement yesterday at Hennessy Park Hotel, Ebène, during a meeting with 161 newly promoted Headmasters.
In her address, the Minister pointed out that the longstanding commitment of the newly promoted Headmasters to their duties and their hard work, have culminated in their promotion. She also emphasised on the important roles assigned to Headmasters who are responsible for the smooth running of their institution as well as for building the future of children.
Mrs Dookun-Luchoomun underscored that primary schooling is regarded as the most important foundational years for learners. The coaching, the grooming and the academic exposure that early learners acquire play a decisive role in their development, highlighted the Minister. The Nine-year Schooling reform provides an ideal platform for the holistic development, she added.
The Minister appealed to school leaders to fully play their role to facilitate the transition to the new education system and support their staff to adapt to numerous changes accompanying the reform such as, the Early Support Programme, Holistic teachers and Support teachers. On that note, she urged all Heads of school to come up with a proper system of management so that they can unleash and drive the reform at their level.
