New ‘classrooms’ for Lawrence T Gay students
School was in session at the Breath of Life Seventh Day Adventist Church today for Class Four students of the Lawrence T Gay Memorial, which has been temporarily closed due to environmental problems.
When a Barbados TODAY team visited the church around 9 a.m., the primary school students, who are scheduled to sit the Barbados Secondary School Entrance Examination in May, were settling into that location where they are due to spend the remaining four weeks of the current school term, which ends on March 23.
At this morning’s assembly, Principal Beverley Parris told the students that despite being in an unfamiliar environment, it was important for them to “get back to doing some serious work”.
In the meantime, officers attached to the Environmental Protection Department of the Ministry of Health continued to investigate complaints by teachers and students at the Spooner’s Hill learning institution of sore throats, itchy skin and rashes.
Tomorrow, Class Three students are expected to join the Class Fours at Breath of Life, while Class One and Class Twos are due to report to the Sarah Ann Gill Methodist Church in Fairfield, Black Rock from Monday.
The Ministry of Education is yet to announce where students of Reception, Infants A and Infants B will be housed. (AH)
