The Grade Six class at the Newfield Primary School along with their teacher, Mrs. Karen James, embarked upon their Social Studies School Based Assessment (SBA) Community Project.
It involves working in conjunction with the Transport Board and Police in erecting speed bumps in the vicinity of the school. The aim is to make the area safe for all pedestrians, especially the students, to cross.
A crew from the Transport Board’s Road Marking and Sign Maintenance Division has been collaborating to provide the young students with theoretical and practical experience in erecting the speed bumps.
It not only was a great learning experience for the students and their teacher, but they also become a part of history by laying
down the first rubber speed bumps on the main road in Antigua.
The Staff and students of the Newfield Primary School would like to thank the
Antigua and Barbuda Transport Board, especially Mr. Shawn King and his team, for working with the students on their SBA project.
