THE Corinth Secondary School is officially off the shift system, just over one year after it was instituted to accommodate construction.
The newly constructed extension replaces a termite infested building, the cause of much discomfort to students and teachers.
Minister for Education, Human Resource Development and Labour, Dr. Robert Lewis, expressed satisfaction with the completed works and that normalcy had returned to the institution.
“The new buildings have been turned over to the school and therefore I am very excited, and I am sure parents are very happy to know that their children can get a full day of school”, he said.
The major works included construction of the class-room extension, a covered multi-purpose space and the realignment of the school’s sewerage and drainage system.
The Corinth Secondary School is amongst five schools refurbished under the Basic Education Enhancement Project, BEEP.
Dr. Lewis took time to congratulate the workers employed under the BEEP for their work , but said there was more to be done.
“The projects have gone well, by and large, whether it’s at Fond Assau – we still have some works to complete there – the Clendon Mason [Secondary] is not yet finished, but it will be in maybe the next two months and the Vieux Fort Infant has gone back to the school,” said the Minister..
