Meet Our EAs!

As part of a national youth employment drive launched by the Department of Basic Education (DoE) at the end of 2020, Union High School was supplied with four temporary Education Assistant (EA) positions to support our educators in strengthening the learning environment at the school.
Among other things, these EAs have been tasked with assisting our teachers to prepare their classrooms for teaching and learning and ensuring that teaching materials are available and ready for use.
They will also be helping the school with the learners’ educational and social development; maintain safe, secure and clean classroom environments; oversee learners out of the classroom and during lunch breaks; supervise group activities of learners and carry out administrative tasks as required by the school.
