After a $21 million upgrade, the acting principal of St Michael’s Infant School in central Kingston, is appealing to residents to help take care of the facility.
Deverlyn Wilks-Kennedy made the appeal after the facility was handed over to school administrators last Thursday.
The renovation work include the installation of a new roof; the installation of age-appropriate sanitary fixtures; general painting of the building and the construction of a play area.
Speaking at the handing over ceremony, Wilks-Kennedy said she was moved to tears to see the students enjoy their new surrounding and predicted that the upgraded facility would positively impact their learning experience.
Education Minister Ronald Thwaites welcomed the project, noting that early childhood education is the most important aspect of a child’s learning experience.
