The Roads, Buildings and General Services Authority (BRAGSA) has commenced the construction of a temporary school at the old E.T Joshua Airport Tarmac to accommodate more than 500 students.

This is part of the government’s move to relocate the staff and students of the Thomas Saunders Secondary School in preparation for repairs to be carried out on the existing school structure located in Kingstown, a release from BRAGSA states.

The project will involve the construction of eight structures, comprising 19 classrooms, a staff room, washrooms and a cafeteria.

It is being done at an estimated cost of $1.6 million and is expected to be completed by the end of July.
