New Classrooms at R.C. School Possible Through Great Benefactors

The San Pedro RC School proudly celebrated the inauguration of its new school building that houses three brand new classrooms on Thursday, September 6, 2012. The new school building was made a reality thanks to the kind collaboration of The San Pedro Town Council and the owners of Canary Cove, Mr. and Mrs. Don Listwin.

At the event Mayor Guerrero said that the conviction of a working council led them to seek funding for the much needed class room. "When my councilors and I were sworn in as the new San Pedro Town Council, we pledged to give our very best efforts to serve our community and we pledged our full support to education for we know that our children are the future of our beloved island� It is as a result of this conviction that we sought and obtained funding which has provided this much needed classroom space for our children," said the Mayor as he pledged to continue working alongside the management of the school to improve the quality of education being offered. But while the Mayor was happy for the inauguration of the building, he was also critical of the state of other buildings before being uplifted over the holiday. "At the same time I am saddened by state of disrepair which we found at the SPRCS. I was really saddened to see the deplorable classroom facilities and grounds which our children had to use to get their education. If we were only willing to provide poor facilities for our children to learn, then we could only expect poorly prepared citizens of tomorrow," criticized Mayor Guerrero.

New school building inaugurated at SPRCS

The building measures 27 feet wide by 72 feet long, and is estimated to have cost over $120,000. Financing for the building was obtained through the collective efforts of the Councilor Gaby Nu�ez and the school management, who lobbied for funding from Listwin. Don Listwin, who has adopted San Pedro as his second home, spoke at the event, saying he was happy to be involved and contribute to education on the island. "If you are going to live in a community, you have to participate in the community and so my wife and I both though about what we wanted to do� We were happy to do this (building of the classroom) and we are happy to see the result." Listwin also stated that he wants to be further involved in the community.
