The Education Ministry is to double the janitorial grant allocation to primary schools come September when the 2016/17 academic year commences.

Currently, each of the over 200 institutions receives between $30,000 and $40,000 per annum for cleaning and general maintenance.

However, school administrators have complained that this is insufficient. 

Education Minister Senator Ruel Reid says his ministry is aware of the complaints.

He says schools will be made aware of the new figure shortly.
