Public schools across the country are expected to undergo repairs during the summer months, according to Director of Education Clare Browne.
Many of the school plants are said to be in a deplorable condition and are in need of urgent renovation.
While summer classes will be held on most of the compounds for three weeks, starting July 8, this will not impact the work, Browne says.
Additionally, the Director says that no summer camps will be held on the school plants this year, because they will pose some hindrance to the planned repairs.
He notes that the summer-school programme will already reduce the time frame in which the repair work can be completed.
Meanwhile, Browne says that particular attention will be paid to the Golden Grove Primary School, which has been quite a challenge over the years.
He says the Government has acquired a plot of land in proximity to the school, and this will facilitate the expansion of the plant.
Although the work might not be completed for the new school year, starting in September, the expansion is necessary and long overdue, the Director says.
