Madam Speaker, thank you for the opportunity to make a brief statement to this Honourable House and the people of the Virgin Islands as I express our sincere gratitude to those persons who have assisted us or made pledges to assist our schools in one way or another.
Minister for Education and Culture, Honourable Myron V. Walwyn has labelled it ‘an act of kindness that goes beyond business but rather speaks to humanity’ following the donation of a semi-permanent 4,000 square feet schooling facility on Virgin Gorda.
The staff and students of the Primary Division of the Bregado Flax Education Centre in Virgin Gorda had a special start of their academic year today with the donation of a 4000 square feet semi-permanent structure that will be used as their temporary school.
Residents, friends, public officers, I am Rosalie Adams, Acting Governor of the Virgin Islands and I am pleased to deliver this week’s update on the recovery efforts in the Territory following the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
