After-school programmes were suspended today at many schools because of the Covid-19 pandemic and delayed test results.

The Department of Youth, Sport and Recreation said there will be a delay in the after-school programme and after-school club services at nine schools.

But a spokeswoman added that it was hoped that services could restart on Monday and that an update would be released over the weekend.

Schools that have reopened and where aftercare service has been suspended are Clearwater Middle School, East End Primary, St George's Prep, Elliot Primary, Francis Patton Primary and the Lyceum Preschool, West Pembroke Primary, Paget Primary, Purvis Primary and Dalton E Tucker Primary.

Schools that have not returned to classroom teaching so are not affected are Harrington Sound Primary, St David's Primary, Port Royal Primary, Whitney Middle School, Dellwood Middle School and Sandys Middle School.
