What ESHS Auditorium Will Look Like 

Yesterday, April 19th, the proposed drawing of a massive building to house the gymnasium, cafeteria and auditorium at the Elmore Stoutt High School was released to the public. 

Hon. Myron V. Walwyn, Minister of Education posted the drawing on social media to gain feedback from the public. 

"The building will also house the teachers' staff room on the top floor. We intend to place this building where the current staff room is, that way both the senior students and junior students would have access to it without the co-mingling," Minister Walwyn said. 

He said it will be built soon. 

"It looks real nice indeed. Looks like it's ready for the 21st century. I would just add some solar panels to the roof and try to make it more eco-friendly aligned with some green space where the students can learn to cultivate their own community garden. Grow local," a resident expressed." 

Another said,"Stop building on Elmore Stoutt, it's overwhelmed. Look for a new site and build another School. Renovations will do at the present. Not another piece to the overstuffed jigsaw puzzle."

The resident added, This is nice and all but think about our current situation, we need to improve what we have before we can spend $, $$$, $$$.00 for something we know we are not ready for, Just like the Sixth form conundrum. Education Minister we not moving in the right direction."

Walwyn To Be Grilled On Extra School Year Accommodation

Education Minister, Hon. Myron V. Walwyn will be grilled about the accommodation for the additional school year next week in the House of Assembly.

Hon. Andrew Fahie, Opposition Leader said that as more classrooms are needed at the Bregado Flax Educational Secondary Division due to the implementation of the extra school year, would the Minister state how many buildings are projected to be constructed? and The construction cost of the entire project and explain in details how the development of this project satisfied the tenets of the Protocols for Effective Financial Management.

Also, the construction cost of each building? And if the project will be tendered.

He will asked, as construction of two buildings to house classrooms at the Elmore Stoutt High School campus has already commenced, would the Minister state for each building: the number of petty contracts issued, the description of works, amounts, contractor/vendor, and dates?; the number of Purchase Orders issued, the description of works, amounts, contractor/vendor and dates? and If all persons, vendors, companies, contractors, have completed their assigned work and have been paid and if not why not.

Fahie will ask Minister Walwyn, to provide details of contractors, work orders, and purchase orders currently outstanding and the process used to select contractors, vendors and materials for each building.

"The total cost to date expended on each building? The total cost left to complete each building."
