Swimming lessons at elementary schools will resume on October 14, 2021

ORANJESTAD - The Minister of Education and Sports, Endy Croes, announced that starting October 14, 2021, the swimming lessons will restart for elementary schools.

The start of the swimming lessons is now possible after resolving the contract issue of swim instructors and by allocating the necessary funds to help cover the transportation expenses, to and from the swimming classes.

Last week, the Minister announced that the contract issues with the swim instructors were resolved. Based on the advice requested and received from the Department for Human Resources (DRH), they decided that the swim instructors will resort under the Department Public Schools (DPS), under a similar contract they previously had for 28 years.

The Minister also allocated 300 thousand florins from his budget to help fund the transportation expenses.
