It is now only a matter of weeks before the Ivan Dawson Primary School campus reopens.
United States non-profit group All Hands and Hearts – Smart Response handed the school back over to local authorities at the weekend during a ceremony to mark their successful completion of rehabilitative works to the facility.
The school was retrofitted with a modern play area, renovated classrooms, among other things. Both teachers and students celebrated the All Hands and Hearts team for their effort.
Education Minister Myron Walwyn also said he is grateful for the contribution from the non-profit group which has been volunteering at local schools since the September 2017 hurricanes.
“My team and I stopped by the Ivan Dawson Primary School to thank All Hands and Hearts for the magnificent work they have done to renovate this institution.”
“We will re-open this institution at the end of this month. The students, as you can see, are very elated about getting back in their classrooms,” Walwyn said.
Like the majority of other local schools, Ivan Dawson Primary underwent a thrashing from the Hurricane Irma.
