Schools get promise of better care


Share post:

Better communication and better maintenance. That was promised by Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw after touring Milton Lynch and St Bartholomew Primary schools in Christ Church yesterday to get a first-hand look at their problems.

“Some (schools) are in better condition than others and I think the fact there has not been a proper system of maintenance existing across the plants is what is leading to these challenges being brought to the fore repeatedly,” she said.

“We will have, going forward, a system of maintenance that identifies problems on a regular basis so that we don’t wait until things get out of control. Instead, we will start to address the problems as they manifest initially so that we can make better use of the available resources.”

The minister, accompanied by Chief Education Officer Karen Best and acting director of the Education Technical Management Unit Richard Harrison, said part of this would include better communication not only with the public, but within the ministry. (CA)
