Over the next few months, schools will undergo a major spruce-up.

Prime Minister Mia Mottley announced last night that Government would make a few million dollars available for a school improvement and repairs programme over the summer holidays.

She was addressing the media following a near ten-hour meeting with officials in education, the teachers’ trade unions and other stakeholders at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre.

The Prime Minister said the Primary School Summer Programme would now receive $5.5 million, instead of the $3.5 million originally voted in the Estimates. (DB)
