Registration needed after 'security incidents' at school events
Registration will be needed for virtual open house events on public school enrolment after “incidents” at two meetings, the Commissioner of Education said last night.
Kalmar Richards said the move was part of strengthened security rules.
A ministry spokeswoman said two virtual open houses had been “disrupted by someone who showed obscene pictures during the meeting”.
Both incidents have been reported to police.
Virtual open houses are being held remotely this month for parents and guardians of pupils planning to enrol in September.
The links to register will be on the same links advertised to put questions in advance. they can be found on www.moed.bm, the Ministry of Education’s website.
Registrations will be checked by meeting organisers before people will be admitted.
Participants in open house events will be on camera live, and must display their full names.
Participants were also asked to arrive in the online waiting rooms at least 15 minutes early for administrative and security checks.
