Three hundred and eight schools received their cheques for the free education grant from the Education Ministry yesterday.

This is the second batch of payouts with $7,703,361.00 deposited into the respective school bank accounts.

Ministry permanent secretary Dr Brij Lal urged the respective school heads to make arrangements prior to the start of the school year.

"Of the 308 schools, 240 are primary schools and 68 are secondary schools and this money has been deposited into the respective school bank accounts," Dr Lal said.

"The headteachers, principals and school managements of the eligible schools should make necessary arrangements to prepare their schools for classes as there are only 13 days before the school opens for term one.

"To date, 723 schools out of the eligible 898 have received the free education grant. The final batch of the grants will be released on Wednesday, the eighth of January."

The first batch of education grants were distributed last week where 415 schools were handed their grants.

Of the 415 schools, 401 are primary schools and 14 are secondary schools.

The ministry deposited $6,997,365 into the respective school bank accounts in the first batch of payouts.
