The groundbreaking for the construction of a new primary school building in San Pedro Town was announced by Daniel Guerrero on Saturday, March 3rd during the United Democratic Party (UDP) rally held at the Honourable Louis Sylvestre Sporting Complex. The ground-breaking was tentatively scheduled for that same Saturday, but due to unforeseen commitments from the Minister of Education, Honourable Patrick Faber, the event has been postponed with a new date yet to be announced.
“The project will see the construction of a building of a pre-school, primary school and high school, all government schools,” said Guerrero. The schools are to be built north of San Pedro Town and according to Guerrero, the area is being prepared for the ground-breaking. Additionally, he reiterated the UDP’s intentions to continue providing the access to education to everyone. It is expected that with this completion of the school project more children on the island will have access to quality education, combatting the country’s literacy problem. At the same time, authorities believe that families will no longer have to send their kids to schools located off the island due to the present space issues at the schools on Ambergris Caye.
