Approximately 150 pupils of Union Gardens and its environs in south-west St Andrew will have a newly built infant school when the 2015/16 academic year begins in September.

Construction of the institution, the Union Gardens Infant School, began in March 2015, and it is being built at a cost of US$186 million.

The facility, for which development is being spearheaded by the Union Gardens Foundation, will on completion have a spacious auditorium and classrooms; covered walkway-linked buildings with play areas; and landscaped common areas, among other features.

The institution will accommodate infants, aged three and half to five years, with a bus being assigned to shuttle the children to and from school, at no cost to parents.
