Parents of students leaving form three and who will be progressing to form four with their government issued tablets, are asked to note they will NOT be required to purchase textbooks for the six (6) subjects that already have ebooks loaded on the devices. The current ebooks will be upgraded to reflect the requirements of the CXC syllabuses and as such, paper-based textbooks will not be needed.
All parents are also asked to note there has been an omission – namely hand sanitizer – in the list of items on the book list. In the current Coronavirus environment, sanitizers are considered as essential to help reduce the spread of infection. As such, parents are asked to ensure their children have these included in their school supplies for the new academic year.
