The Education Ministry is positive all schools' audited reports from last year will be with the ministry by the expected deadline, May 30.

"All audited reports from last year are due on May 30," permanent secretary for education Dr Brij Lal said.

While he had received many reports, he said he was optimistic the remaining 2013 audited reports from remaining schools would be with him by May 30

Meanwhile, the ministry has deposited the second cheques of the free education grant into the respective schools' bank accounts on Monday and is expected to deposit the remaining funds later this week.

Three hundred and eight schools received their cheques for the free education grant this week while 415 schools were handed their grants last week.

This is the second batch of payouts with $7,703,361 deposited into the respective schools' bank accounts.

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

Dr Lal urged the respective school heads to make arrangements prior to the start of the school year.
