MARIGOT–The Collectivité’s Human Development Department and Department of Education invited the parents of students from the Jérôme Beaupère and Aline Hanson Schools in Sandy Ground to a technical meeting to inform them of the progress of the repair work on the buildings.
The meeting was held in the presence of the Deputy Academic Director of National Education Services Michel Sanz, the Inspector of National Education (IEN) of the Northern Islands Dominique Boyer, the directors of the two schools, and respective representatives from the Sustainable Development Department in charge of school repair work, the Human Development Department and the Director of Education.
This meeting was an opportunity to explain to parents the extent of the damage to the buildings by Hurricane Irma, and the work that will be undertaken to repair these two first degree schools. The option chosen in agreement with the parents and the Education Nationale is to maintain the hourly rotations until the end of June 2018.
Small repair work will be undertaken between now and then by the Collectivité, knowing that the bulk of the work will be carried out during the school holidays. Roofing, fencing, painting and interior design work are required to rehabilitate these two schools.
It was mutually agreed that the site would be delivered for the start of the school year in September 2018, with a return to normal class hours.
