Education Minister, Anthony Garcia

The Education Ministry has identified the Penal/Quinam Government Primary School as the institution where five year old Khalesi Webb, who has spina bifida, can attend.

This development was contained in a media release sent from the Ministry this afternoon.

It maintains that no child should be denied access to education on the basis of a disability.

Education Minister Anthony 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 statement explained that the parent, together with the line supervisor (School Supervisor I) will visit the school tomorrow 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.
