Society stays closed
SOCIETY PRIMARY SCHOOL will remain closed.
Despite last-ditch attempts by some members of the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), who have consulted a lawyer to help in their cause to save it, the latest word from Chief Education Officer Laurie King is that the St John school will not be reopened.
“As far as I’m aware Society is closed, the children have been reallocated to different schools across this island and the students are very happy. All appears to be very settled from the standpoint of the parents and students,” he told the DAILY?NATION.
There has been some concern expressed about the future of the school, which is the oldest in the island. PTA president Paul Puckerin had suggested that the school be repaired and turned into a community centre or something of the sort, rather than let it fall to further ruin.
