Minister of Education Myron Walwyn has released a proposed drawing for what he said is a new building that is being considered to house the teachers’ staff room, auditorium, gymnasium, and cafeteria at the Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS).

He said it will be built where the teachers’ staff room is now located.

Walwyn did not give a time-line for the start and completion of the project. In a post on his Facebook page, Walwyn stated that he was merely posting the design to get feedback.

“This is a proposed drawing for the auditorium/cafeteria/gymnasium at the Elmore Stoutt High School which I intend to have built very soon.”

“The building will also house the teachers’ staff room on the top floor. We intend to place this building where the current staff room is. That way, both the senior students and junior students would have access to it without the co-mingling,” Walwyn said.

He further explained that the aforementioned building is merely a part of the overall development plan for Elmore Stoutt High.

“Thirty two classrooms are currently being built to be ready in time for September. The overall separation of the school into junior and senior high will call for improved classrooms, improved labs, new furnishing and general improvement to the physical plant,” added Walwyn.
