Fem Cruz, Love FM News: The Belmopan Comprehensive High School have been pushing to get classes back to normal. However, according to the principal of B.C.S., Shirley Vaughn, since the Easter Break many students have not returned. Vaughn gave us more details. 

Shirley Vaughn, Principal, Belmopan Comprehensive High: “I want to appeal to our parents, our guardians, our sponsors, to please assist us in having our students return, especially the 4th years who they have like two more weeks to complete. We want to get in those assessments as soon as possible and by extension, our 1st to 3rd year students, we are back face to face. Full fledged Monday and Wednesday, 1st and 3rd and then on Tuesdays and Thursdays we have our 2nd and 4th year coming to school. So we’re not doing any online classes. Kindly return to school. Meet with us parents. Meet with us guardians or sponsors. Come to school. We’re open Monday to Fridays from 8 to 3, in some cases to 4 we’re here. Come and meet with me to find out what are some of those issues that we need to iron out. It’s very important. Education is the key to success and we want to continue to encourage, to work with the school to make sure that we have all our students back to school. For next week Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday we have our admissions program, whereby we have a representative from each of our feeder schools. They will be coming into Compre meeting with our dynamic team, to have students register for the school year, for next school year, to make sure we have, meet all of those social and academic needs. Also for next school year, God is willing, we’re making sure that we have everything planned, everything structured to have our students and teachers return back to school. Everything in place, so it’s important that you reach out to join our Compre family to make sure that we continue to educate our young women and men to make sure that we have a stronger Belize.”
