THE MIN­ISTRY of Ed­u­ca­tion, Youth and In­for­ma­tion Re­gion 6 yesterday hosted an ap­pre­ci­a­tion ban­quet for re­tired high-school prin­ci­pals at the Knutsford Court Ho­tel in St An­drew. The oc­ca­sion also served as the launch of the School Im­prove­ment Sup­port Ini­tia­tive.

Twenty-four school prin­ci­pals who con­tributed between four and 30 years of ser­vice to ed­u­ca­tion were recog­nised and and hon­oured with plaques.

As it re­lates to the School Im­prove­ment Sup­port Ini­tia­tive, as­sis­tance will be given to schools that have been rated as un­sat­is­fac­tory by the Na­tional Ed­u­ca­tion In­spec­torate. Schools will be ex­posed to re­sult-based man­age­ment, as well as mon­i­tor­ing and eval­u­a­tion train­ing, to give ad­min­is­tra­tors the skills nec­es­sary for de­vel­op­ing ef­fec­tive in­ter­ven­tion pro­grammes.
