A new primary school for San Pedro is in the making and this is exciting news for Ambergris Caye considering the overcrowding of all primary schools and the need for several private elementary schools. This good news was announced last week Thursday, June 2, 2011, at the official inauguration ceremony of the Hon. Manuel Heredia Hall at San Pedro High School grounds.

The first mention of this project for a new building for elementary education was first made last year by Hon. Manuel Heredia at the ground-breaking ceremony of the same new building for San Pedro Jr. College. In his address to a large gathering last week Hon. Manuel Heredia elaborated on his plans to see the construction of a new building for a R.C. School and this he hopes to do before his present term in office is over in 2013.

Our Area Representative said that the most challenging part is locating a piece of land for the said project. “As soon as this property is identified,” said Minister Heredia, “the government of Belize is ready to commence actual construction.”
