Hundreds of students returned to the classroom today for the start of the new academic year.

According to Ministry of Education officials, all renovations on school plants have been completed and classes are ready to receive students.

But the Chief Education Officer Marcus Edward has observed that several schools continue to be heavily affected by termite infestation—a situation that has caused furniture shortages in some classrooms. He however notes that the affected school are expected to receive a consignment of replacements soon.

Meanwhile Edward has also disclosed that the transition for students and teachers at the George Charles, Sir Arthur Lewis Community College and the Jon Odlum Secondary school has been going smoothly.

An orientation exercise is taking place today for all students and classes are expected to start on Wednesday for students at the two secondary schools.
