The Education Minister Ronald Thwaites has promised to work to get the May Pen Primary School on a single shift system.

The school has a population of over 2,500 students.

Speaking at today’s opening of the school's Safety and Security Week, the education minister said he is concerned about threats to which students at the institution are exposed.

Thwaites said he will be working with stakeholders to ensure that measures are put in place to ease the burden on the students caused by the dual shift system.

He also urged the students to practice safety and security both at school and on the roads.
