Govt. finally supports the reconstruction of one Mile Primary school
Back in 2012 during the deadly Linden July 18th protest a fire of unknown origin gutted the One Mile primary School. Residents in the community took it upon themselves to rebuild the school, that process had started but was moving rather slow much to the dissatisfaction of residents. Given the financial constraints facing the once thriving bauxite community the task was beginning to get difficult.
Now the government is chipping in and according to government chief spokes- person and cabinet secretary Dr Roger Luncheon cabinet granted no objection to the award of over 170million dollars for the school construction.
Over 800 students were displaced from the One Mile primary school. Residents told this newscast that the children are accommodated at schools around the community but the transportation cost is placing an additional financial burden on their pockets.
