Ministry of Education holds dress down day in aid of the Bahamas

The Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development is holding a ‘Dress down Day’ on Friday, October 11, 2019 to raise funds for Bahamas relief.

Hurricane Dorian impacted the Bahamas on September 1 as a Category 5 hurricane, devastating the Abaco and Grand Bahama islands.

The Ministry recognizes the tremendous support received from friendly governments and students across the region subsequent to the passage of Hurricane Maria and wishes to assist the people of the Bahamas in kind.

Students are encouraged to contribute a minimum of one dollar ($1.00) to assist. Staff within schools, as well as the Ministry of Education are also expected to participate in this fundraising event.

The Ministry is encouraging ALL schools to actively participate in this activity.

    Dress Down Day. Dress Down Day means relaxation from wearing formal dress on a particular day at work place. Employees are allowed to come to office in casual clothing like jeans, skirts, sandals etc.

      @Annomyous, I spelled your name just as it is written.

      Anyway, I have the same question as yours, I was looking to see what they are to “dress” in; now I am wondering why is it the title of the announcement.

      From Merriam-Webster
      dress down
      intransitive verb
      : to dress casually especially for reasons of fashion.
