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.
