The Ministry of Education confirmed that all schools—at primary, secondary and ECCE level—will be closed on Friday 12 October 2018. This is to facilitate the 2018 National Convention of Teachers, which will be held from 9am to 3pm on that day.

Harrilal Seecharan, chief education officer of the Ministry of Education, publicly announced the date today, via press release, after approving a request for time off by the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers’ Association (TTUTA).
