Principal of the Fair Hall Government School, Sharon Morgan-Peters, said the institution is at the forefront of the thrust to promote Inclusive Education in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Mrs. Morgan-Peters said there are currently some 20 students enrolled at the institution with disabilities including Dyslexia and Autism.
Head of the Girls High School, Michelle Beache, said her institution welcomed a wheelchair-bound student for the first time in 2006.
Mrs. Beache said while physical arrangements were made to accommodate this disability, it was heartening to see the positive attitudes of the other students toward their new schoolmate.
Inclusive education means that all students attend and are welcomed by their neighborhood schools in age-appropriate, regular classes and are supported to learn, contribute and participate in all aspects of the school.
