FIVE hundred and sixty three schools around the country will be receiving grants from the $10million that was released by the Education Ministry this week.

This grant — part of the Government's free education grant — is for the second term of school.

In a statement released by the Ministry of Information, it stated that the grant was released to the schools upon the submission of the schools' audited financial report for last year.

It also stated the submission of the minutes of the annual general meeting and recommendations from the monitoring team.

The government said all schools were required to submit their 2013 financial report by the end of the month.

"Some schools also sought assistance from the Ministry of Education to furnish their financial reports," the statement said.

The statement also stated that the ministry's monitoring and evaluation teams visited schools at the beginning and the end of the first term to provide guidance and also monitor their financial reports.
