Leonora Delville Primary on the western end of Tortola is now ready to receive students when school reopens on Monday.
Education Minister Myron Walwyn said on Friday that repair works on the school are now completed.
“We have a few more finishing touches, most of which can be done without any interruption to our students. I would like to thank my very hardworking staff at the Ministry of Education for making this happen.”
“I remain grateful to our teachers, parents and students for their patience during this difficult period,” Walwyn said.
The school has been at the centre of debate and even controversy surrounding whether it would have been ready for the start of the 2018 school year.
Andrew Fahie, the representative of the First District where the school is located, had threatened to ‘revolt’ if students who are enrolled at the educational facility were made to start the school year under tents.
Walwyn, in what can be described as a sharp reply, told Fahie to redirect his energy towards assisting to get the school ready.
