Protect school property urges MoE official
KINGSTON, Jamaica - The Chief Education Officer at the Ministry of Education Grace McLean has challenged school officials and community members to forge greater bond to protect school resources.
McLean made the call today during a visit to the Maverley Primary and Junior High school for the official opening of the institution’s computer laboratory.
"I want to say I am encouraged by the work that was done at the school but I want to challenge both parents and members in the community to come together to protect the resources at the school," said McLean.
Member of Parliament Derrick Smith, present at the opening, shared similar sentiments.
The official opening at the lab brings to an end several years of stop-and-start construction and delays by gang violence in the gritty northwest St Andrew community.
The violence in the area had even threatened to derail the project.
Head of European Union (EU) delegation in Jamaica at the time, Ambassador Marco Mazzocchi Alemanni, had raised concern that violence had hindered the project from being completed within the contracted five-month time-frame.
