Video: BNV With Simmons, Hunt & Horton

September 6, 2021

Cecille Snaith-Simmons, Larry Hunt, and Ellen-Kate Horton are joining Bernews this evening [Sept 6] for the latest episode in the Bernews News & Views series, with the trio set to discuss their position on the planned closure of West End Primary School.

In July, following a consultation process, the Government announced that they will move forward with Parish Primary Schools which “will see one primary school per parish with two primary schools in Pembroke for a total of 10 primary schools, eight less than the 18 primary schools we currently use.”

“There will be no closures of any primary schools this school year or next school year. These eventually discontinuing use of any schools will be phased in over a period of no less than five years, starting after the 2022/23 school year and more specifically between 2023 and 2027,” the Government said.

The live broadcast should start at around 8pm:
