MINISTER OF EDUCATION Ronald Jones will tomorrow get a first-hand view of the repairs programme being undertaken at some the 22 primary schools during this summer vacation.The repairs, slated to start at the end of June and end by August 20, were expected to cost approximately $1 million.Some of the work was general while some other schools were set to have ceiling upgrades, construction of nutrition rooms, floor repairs, the provision of covered walkways and the relocation of prefabricated buildings at six schools to allow for additional space.When the NATION team visited Deacon’s Primary last Tuesday, the janitors were busy cleaning desks and scrubbing floors in time for school which resumes in two weeks. The floors which are being replaced at Charles F Broome are almost completed, while the Nutrition Room which was constructed at Grantley Prescod Primary was receiving the finishing touches with a coat of paint.
