Sarah Stannard, Director of Education of the Falkland Islands, told Paula Ojeda of Montevideo's El Observador how the 1982 War is taught to schoolchildren in the South Atlantic British overseas territories where fighting took place. The story was published this week.
The Falkland Islands government, FIG, is stepping up its response measures to COVID- 19 after it was confirmed that the King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH) is currently treating a critically ill child. Chief Executive Barry Rowland said that although it has not been confirmed, it is suspected that the child has contracted Coronavirus. Under the new phase of the response, schools, nurseries, and play-parks will close as of Friday 27 March and will not re-open until at least the start of the new term on 4 May.
