A donor has pledged to rebuild the Carrot Bay-based Isabella Morris Primary school, Premier and First District Representative Andrew Fahie has said.
The school, like many others territory-wide, was temporarily closed after sustaining considerable damage during the September 2017 disasters.
“I am proud that through the Minister for Education and his efforts that with God’s help, a donor has come forward and committed to building the new Isabella Morris Primary School,” Fahie said during his annual district report presentation in Capoon’s Bay on Saturday.
“This is good news for our education system, our teachers and students who will be the end-users,” he stated.
The First District representative did not specify who the donor is. But, once repaired, Fahie said the school would be equipped with modern technology.
“The building will be done using SMART and green building strategies to ensure that generations unborn will benefit tremendously. This is progress. This is moving in one direction, forward,” he stated.
Junior school idea still a possibility?
During the tenure of the previous National Democratic Party administration, there was talk to possibly transform the educational facility from a primary school into a Junior High School. However, whether that will be materialized under the Fahie-led administration is yet to be seen.
In the meantime, Fahie said the Leonora Delville Primary School that is also located in his constituency has received some attention of its own.
“We have been able to tackle the mould issue that was previously ignored by others,” the Premier said.
That school was also affected during the aforesaid weather events.
