Chalky Mount students settle into new school


Share post:

AFTER AN EARLY HICCUP, former students of Chalky Mount Primary have settled into their new surroundings at A DaCosta Edwards Primary School in Belleplaine, St Andrew.

The bus, which was scheduled to arrive just before 8 a.m. was more than an hour late.

Frustrated parents – who were allowed to travel on the buses today only – and restless children finally made the journey to Belleplaine where they were greeted by headmistress Laureen Hinds and taken on a tour.

The parents said they were satisfied that the students were in a better environment.

Last term, Chalky Mount Primary was deemed unsafe due to structural defects. The school was closed for a few days and the students were temporarily housed at the nearby Wesleyan Holiness and Seventh-Day Adventist churches until the end of the term.


The Ministry of Education also announced the school would be closed and the children relocated to A DaCosta Edwards Primary. (RL/SAT)
