The Ministry of Education has announced the availability of the Primary Schools Registration Forms at all primary schools and Education District Offices.
Standardized application forms for admission to First Year at schools are available at the school and at the respective Education District Offices during normal working hours and the Ministry’s website at http://moe.gov.tt/Education/Primary/Registration from 14th February, 2018.
All completed application forms must be submitted to the school for which the application has been made by 15th March, 2018. Parents/Guardians of successful applicants will be contacted by the school during the period 15th May to 31st May, 2018.
The Ministry today emphasized that there must be no interview process and/or examination as criteria for admittance to a primary school.
The ministry says Principals who wish to utilise online registration may do so but must simultaneously ensure that paper copies of application forms are also available to prospective parents. It adds that Principals are reminded that under no circumstance should a registration fee be charged to parents or any request for a contribution of cash or kind be imposed on any parent as conditions for acceptance of a child into a school.
The Ministry of Education says the Government is striving toward quality, access and equity in education to all students across Trinidad and Tobago.
