For years the management of Grace Primary School has been working on plans to have an extension to their school built on a 3-acre parcel of land on Faber’s Road in Belize City. To date the school has just under five hundred students enrolled and each year they have had to turn down applications due to limited classroom space. Today the school is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel as ground was broken at the Faber’s Road location with plans to begin construction within a few weeks. Brenda Hyde, the school’s Vice Principal spoke to Love News on how far they have come.
William Lamb is the Executive Director for the Social Investment Fund. According to him there was a process to undergo in order to get the funds approved for the construction of the 4-classroom structure.
Education Minister, Patrick Faber was on hand for the ceremony. Faber says this project is falling into line of what they had foreseen for the area.
It is anticipated that the building will be ready for use by the 2017 academic year.
