Dominica: Parliamentary Representative of Roseau Valley Constituency Melissa Poponne-Skerrit has shared an update on the construction work on the new Grammar School.

The construction of the school will continue throughout 2022, and more space will be provided to the students.

“Construction has begun on the new Grammar School. The new building will be spacious for existing and new students while also expanding the school’s subject offerings. Work will continue throughout 2022,” Melissa Skerrit took social media and informed.

She further stated that the government has been committed and will continue to work to enhance its educational sector.

“We remain committed to the tradition of educational excellence,” she outlined.

In early May, the government of Dominica informed that the Dominica Grammar School is currently undergoing a facelift which will set it apart from other educational buildings in the Caribbean country.

The rehabilitation of the school started in April 2022. Expectedly, the project will be completed by 2024, and will ensure that students and teachers will have a modernized and more comfortable teaching and learning environment.

The Montreal Management and Consultants Establishment (MMCE) Ltd will undertake the rehabilitation works.

MMCE will retain the two (2) existing buildings but with major renovation works externally and internally. The works will be modernizing both structures to achieve harmony with new buildings.

Third major building will be built, similar to the two existing buildings for classes and lectures. Other areas on the campus will include a library, an administrative building, sporting facilities, a greenhouse, green areas and a modern auditorium that can host up to five hundred people.

In the past few days, the government of Dominica has commissioned three primary schools – Morne Jaune Primary School, Stevens Primary School, and Wills Strathmore Stevens Primary School. The rehabilitation of these schools are done as part of the government’s Climate Resilience and Restoration Project.
