The external works to clean up the surroundings of the L-shaped building of the Elmore Stoutt High School has begun as Government moves to end the shift system at the institution.

Premier and Minister of Finance Honourable Andrew Fahie said he is happy with the progress made by Ministry of Finance, especially Dr. Drexel Glasgow and his colleagues at the Project Management Unit to get this project completed for the new school year in September this year.

Premier Fahie said, “Since taking office, your government has designated this project as high-priority so that our junior students can once again attend school full time at this site.  Our senior students will continue school at the CTL Building, but now they will attend school full-time.  This will end the shift system which was implemented as a result of the destruction of the ESHS campus in September 2017 by Hurricane Irma.  In the meantime the plans for the new ESHS campus are in the making.”

The Premier added that contracts for the internal works on the L-shaped building will be signed next week. He expressed appreciation to the principal, assistant principals, teachers, support staff, students and parents of ESHS for their patience, professionalism and tolerance in this matter from September 2017 to the present, adding, “ Your new Government will continue to move with haste to ensure a more conducive educational environment.”
