Unite BVI to absorb full repair costs for Enis Adams, Francis Lettsome

Unite BVI to absorb full repair costs for Enis Adams, Francis Lettsome

Education Minister Sharie de Castro has indicated that all expenses for repair work needed on two schools assigned to house students displaced from the Althea Scatliffe Primary School (ASPS) will be dealt with entirely by local philanthropic organisation, Unite BVI.
In July of this year, parents were informed of the ministry’s plans to relocate the staff and students of the ASPS after a structural assessment of the building conducted in June revealed that the building was structurally unsound and unsuitable for continued use.

“Today we are pleased to announce that the Ministry of Education has partnered with Unite BVI who has agreed to absorb the total cost of the infrastructural works needed to provide a safe and functional learning environment for the students at both Enis Adams and Francis Lettsome Primary Schools,” de Castro said in a recent statement.

The Education Minister described it as exceptional news and said thanks should be extended to the team at Unite BVI for making a difference.

In the meantime, de Castro said the projects will start this week and in the case of Francis Lettsome Primary School, will be completed in phases. The first phase is slated to be completed in time for the reopening of school.

“This will allow for the students and teachers to occupy the space in time for the opening of the new school term,” the minister stated.

De Castro said the works needed at Enis Adams Primary School include the completion of the second floor classrooms, which is slated to begin this week.

She noted however, that because of the lead time necessary for materials needed to complete the works, the project is estimated to take a bit longer.

“In light of this, and after consultation with the technical team at the Ministry of Education and the principal of the school, a decision has been made to implement a hybrid system at the Enis Adams Primary School,” de Castro said.

She further explained that in order to ensure all students at the institution are afforded face-to-face instruction on a daily basis, the following schedule will be implemented:

Students from kindergarten to grade two, including students in the therapeutic kindergarten will attend school for full day instruction from 8:30am – 3:15pm, Monday to Friday.

Students in grades 3 to 6 will attend on a hybrid schedule with one half of the population attending in the morning from 8:30am – 12 noon and the other half attending in the afternoon from 1pm – 4:30pm.

The Minister also stated that consideration has been given to accommodate families who have students in multiple grades so that parents will not have to pick up at two separate times during the day.
