The education department has asked corporation schools to conduct Wednesday morning meetings in English.

Story so far: There are a little more than 30,000 students in Classes 6 to 9 in corporation schools. Only 8,037 are comfortable speaking in English, according to a recent review by the education department. It only assessed their speaking competency.

  • The morning meetings on Wednesdays will now take place only in English. The goal is to help improve the English-speaking skills of the students from Classes 6 to 9.
  • Officials have begun reviewing their progress each week. The weekly reviews will be submitted to the corporation commissioner.

Other measures: The corporation is working to bring back approximately 6,000 students who dropped out during the pandemic. The corporation council also allowed the schools to appoint temporary teachers to avoid shortages.
