Minister of Finance, Winston Jordan says he will have a structural engineer examine the condition and strength of the Christianburg Primary School’s building.
The Department of Public Information (DPI) says this follows several issues raised by residents of Christianburg, Linden during a ministerial outreach to the area on Saturday, February 3, 2018. The visit was organised to ascertain the levels of development, the areas of need and the concerns of citizens. DPI said that many residents highlighted the dilapidated nature of the school and the fact that its closure has affected the children living in the area. According to the Parent- Teacher’s Association, numerous complaints were made to the previous PPP/C administration for repairs to the school, but those efforts proved futile.
These students are currently attending classes at St. Aidan’s Primary School in Blue Berry Hill, some distance from their homes.
