Another school year has begun, and the ground-breaking ceremony for the schools planned for north of San Pedro Town has once again been delayed. It is now tentatively set to take place after the September celebrations. The ground-breaking had previously been scheduled for August, but that never happened. Area Representative for Belize Rural South and Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Honourable Manuel Heredia Jr. said that the schools will be built, but that they need to finish preparing the site so construction can take place. He is anticipating for the construction of the schools to start sometime in October of this year.

The project continues to see delay after delay. Heredia explained that the delay this time is because works are yet to be finished on the site and because the project in San Pedro is linked to a similar one in Caye Caulker. According to him, a pre-school and a high school will be built on la Isla Cariņosa and the arrangements to have that site ready for a ground-breaking as well is what has affected the process in San Pedro. Heredia added that the schools for Caye Caulker and San Pedro Town are a part of a package; thus, both projects need to be worked on and executed around the same time. The area where the schools are to be built is allegedly seven miles north of downtown San Pedro, and according to the Ministry of Education, transportation will be provided for students and teachers. The funding secured for the three schools north of the island are thanks to a Caribbean Development Bank loan to the tune of $70 million. These monies will cover the building of all 35 new schools across the country.

Maybe the delay is because he is too focused on destroying mangroves down south to build 'his' 22 lots from garbage. (Because the island is out of land???)
How many students are located in the area expected to be served by these new schools?

Living north I knows many properties open for schools to build. Maybe even rich resort could donate land to build proper type schooling house?
