The Ministry of Education has assured that all students returned to their classrooms on Monday confirming the reopening of schools. 

In a media release the ministry said over the last three weeks in conjunction with the Educational Facilities Company Limited (EFCL) the ministry undertook repairs and maintenance projects to ensure the readiness for the new academic term.

Minister Anthony Garcia also encouraged teachers, students and parents for continued success, good health and happiness in 2017.

However C News understands at the St. Joseph RC School students had to return home because of electrical works being done and dusty classrooms.

Meanwhile the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association in a release said they were only aware of one school not reopening and that was the Sangre Chiquito Presbyterian Primary School because of the school building being condemned.

They also received reports of the Penal RC School closing their doors to students because of structural problems.

They said at the San Fernando West Secondary School teachers withdrew with services because of a recurring sewer problem.
