The very over populated San Pedro Roman Catholic School (SPRCS) is receiving much needed assistance in the creation of new space for the many students that are currently in need of attending school. By the beginning of the new school year, SPRCS will boast three new classrooms. This is just the beginning of a very ambitious undertaking by Canary Cove and the San Pedro Town Council who have teamed up after a wish list was sent by the school to both entities earlier this year.

The primary focus for the team is getting a new building measuring 24ft wide by 72ft long to house three new classrooms. Construction of the new building commenced on Tuesday July 24th and is expected to be completed in time for the commencement of the school year 2012-2013.

According to Gabi Nuñez, Town Councilor tasked with overseeing the work on the school’s grounds, the building will house three classrooms measuring 24ft by 24ft with a verandah extending 4ft. Each classroom will have the capacity to house approximately 40 students comfortably. The building will be made of treated pine and T111 5/8th plywood board. The new building will have an opened ceiling system with proper insulation as well as breather fans. Straying from the norm of the other buildings, it is the hope of the constructors to install removable dividers to separate the classrooms, which would make it possible for the building to be used as a conference room or for assembly.

San Pedro school getting new classrooms

Classrooms for San Pedro School

Placement of students in schools around the country has always been a challenge with the demands of a growing population. In San Pedro, there are at least fifty-seven students who are out of school, not for the summer holidays, but because there simply is no space for them, will now have the chance come this September to sit in newly-built classrooms. The accomplishment, according to San Pedro Town Mayor, Daniel Guerrero, comes through a joint community effort, involving the San Pedro Town Council, San Pedro Roman Catholic Primary School, and an unnamed “Good Samaritan”.

San Pedro’s Education Officer, Miriam Pott, says that the construction of the classrooms was a dream that was answered in just a beckon call.

The construction of the wooden classrooms comes at a cost of around a hundred and fifty thousand dollars.
