STUDENTS of Chalky Mount Primary spent the first day at their new temporary locations yesterday, following the decision to abandon the St Andrew school building on safety grounds.

Officials reported a seamless transition to the nearby Wesleyan Holiness and Seventh-Day Adventist churches for the rest of the school term.

David Clement, Deputy Chief Education Officer in the Ministry of Education, said no problems had been reported in resiting the more than 100 pupils.

“The settling in is working so far, the children are comfortable, the teachers are satisfied and the work is proceeding as normal; it was a smooth transition,” he told the DAILYNATION.
