Refurbished classrooms for Fanny Village infants department

Arrangements are currently being made to have the infants department of the Fanny Village Government Primary School accommodated at their old school.

The original school structure was gutted by fire in 2015 and students were subsequently relocated to the Fanny Village Community Centre.

The infants have been housed at a two room plywood structure on the community centre’s compound ever since, though the accommodation was only meant to be temporary.

The Point Fortin Borough Corporation last week closed the infants department of the school “until further notice” citing concerns of termites and the functionality of toilets.

Responding to questions posed in the Senate on Tuesday, Education Minister Anthony Garcia said a resolution is expected soon.

Following a recent visit by Ministry officials, it was determined that three classrooms at the school were unaffected by the 2015 fire and could be used to accommodate the infants.

Garcia said the all clear was given for those classrooms to be refurbished to house the students.

These works are expected to be completed within days.

“I have been told that that refurbishment will be done in a few days so the students in the affected classes can be accommodated as soon as possible,” Garcia said.
