Education Regulation Review Far Advanced

A review of the Education Regulation of 1980, which outlines the framework under which all schools should operate, is at an advanced stage of completion.

These include guidelines regarding instruction hours across school days; safety precautions and equipment; and student behaviour, among other factors.

Senator Reid said the Ministry has commenced rolling out examination preparation strategies such as workshops and public education campaigns as the Government moves to replace the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) with the Primary Exit Profile (PEP) next year.
