Thanks Offered After Transition From TN Tatem

December 9, 2016

The Department of Education today [Dec 9] gave special recognition to students, teachers, the Department of Public Transportation [PTB] and mini bus operators who all worked together to smoothly manage the first day of student transition from T.N. Tatem to Clearwater Middle school.

Acting Commissioner of Education, Dr. Freddie Evans said, “This successful transition is model of what Bermuda needs right now – a community of sharing and caring and professional collaboration.

“The initial success of this strong merger is a reflection of strong, positive leadership and a willingness to put children first.

“It was dynamic to see children from Warwick and St George’s walking to class together, and starting on a positive note as a shared school community.

“I wish to thank Clearwater Principal, Keisha Douglas and her staff who welcomed T.N. Tatem principal, Francine McMahon and her staff. Together they are working in the best interest of our students.

“We also wish to give a special acknowledgement to parents who have been diligently working with us to provide a safe learning environment for our students.”

      @Onion Juice. How does anyone take you serious. And another note, do you think for one second the children of that school are reading this article and because of that do you feel your foul mouthed comments out of place.
      You really are a poor example.

      Just my opinion but you seem to be one of those know it alls.

    Interesting how both the premier and the minister had villainized the teachers of TN Tatem in the media… But have not uttered the slightest word or semantic of apology. It’s a shame how these governmental leaders continue to operate with impunity and NO ACCOUNTABILITY!!!!!

    Should’ve closed it down before the school year started, and relocate to best suited schools in the area. Oh yeah. I forgot. They protested that too.

    Can’t win. It’s a crying shame.
