DAT encourages teachers to get vaccinated; launches blended learning survey

The Dominica Association of Teachers (DAT) is encouraging all teachers on island to get vaccinated against the Covid-19 virus.

“As a union we encourage all teachers to get vaccinated against the Covid-19 virus,” Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the DAT Juanita Carbon stated recently.

“We also advise that each teacher get tested to know his or her status,” she encouraged. “Let us protect ourselves, our colleagues, our students as we strive to return to face-to-face instruction.”

She continued, “We wish to make our schools and learning institutions a safe place for all.”

Carbon added, “Together we can help in the fight against the spread of the Covid-19 virus by following all the protocols and guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health.”

Meanwhile, she said the DAT is aware of the present Covid-19 situation in Dominica which will impact the scheduled opening of school for the new academic year.

“We have all heard from the Minister for Education, Octavia Alfred, on the immediate decisions taken by the ministry in that regard,” Carbon stated.

She called on all teachers to avail themselves of all the training and planning sessions which will be conducted by the Ministry of Education from September 1st to 10th, 2021.

Furthermore, she indicated that the DAT will continue to dialogue and work collaboratively with the ministry during this trying period.

She revealed that an online survey has been launched by the DAT requesting information from teachers on blended learning.

“Teachers you are kindly asked to complete the survey as soon as possible,” Carbon urged.
