School reopens in Arima, damaged wall fixed

Classes are expected to resume at Ari­ma Cen­te­nary Gov­ern­ment Pri­ma­ry School this morning, after a tree fell on the eastern side of the perimeter wall and damaged the structure.

Education Minister Anthony Garcia confirmed the incident, and added that clean up operations would have taken place over the weekend by the Arima Borough Corporation, following an assessment by Ministry and other stakeholders.

Garcia said, “Ap­proval has al­ready been grant­ed by our per­ma­nent sec­re­tary to re­pair the dam­aged area of the wall and then to treat with a more per­ma­nent so­lu­tion sub­se­quent­ly,” Gar­cia added.

He said that the repairs were done in an effort to save the loss of teaching hours at the school.
