The Ministry of Education on Wednesday held a blessing ceremony to mark the start of work on the new Mahaut Primary School.
The school is being constructed by Montreal Management Consultants under Dominica’s Citizenship by Investment Programme.
Parliamentary Representative for the Mahaut Constituency Rayburn Blackmoore says the school will open up new possibilities for the future of Mahaut’s children.
“We believe that the school must be built not just on bricks and mortar, But on a foundation for an education revolution. An education that must get our people into the 21st century teaching and learning mindset.”
“The hope is that this new school will provide emphasis on critical areas of learning that are the prerequisite to functioning in a modern economy and society,” he added.
Meantime Education Minister Octavia Alfred says the new school will cater for the comfort of all students as well as teaching staff.
