Nassau, Bahamas - The Ministry of Education advises the public that all schools in The Bahamas will reopen on schedule on Monday, 5th September, 2011 with the exception of schools on Cat Island, which still do not have electricity restored or the physical plants are being repaired

Minister of Education, The Honourable T.
