The issue of overcrowding, at least for the time being, should not be an issue for staff and students at the Clare Hall Secondary School (CHSS).
The school, yesterday, opened a new Centre for Excellence which will address overcrowding and other specific needs of the school.
Principal Jonah Greene said the need for additional classrooms and space was critical, as CHSS was built to accommodate less than 500 students but now has an enrollment of 832.
“The statistics would have indicated that the Clare Hall Secondary School is the fastest growing secondary school on island. The completion of this first phase addresses the issue of classroom space at the school,” she said.
The headmistress also thanked the government and the Ministry of Education and others who played a role in completing the project.
Minister of Education Michael Browne said $1.9 million out of a US $15 million loan from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) was spent on the construction of the three-storey building which comprises six classrooms with fans and state-of-the- art whiteboards, an elevator lift, office space and other amenities.
One of the classrooms will be specifically geared towards students with different learning abilities.
Browne said the second phase of the project is the renovation and upgrade of the Technical and Vocational block for Home Economics.
