George Charles Secondary temporarily relocated

PRESS RELEASE:-The Ministry of Education will undertake major rehabilitation to the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College, to address existing deplorable conditions of the buildings of the College’s Morne complex.

A recent assessment done by the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) has revealed that many of the College’s buildings have air quality issues and are infested with mold and termites. The cost of addressing these issues at the College, at this time, is estimated to be in excess of EC$3 million, and the Government of Saint Lucia is seeking the assistance of the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) in this regard.

To provide temporary accommodation to the staff and students of the College, the Ministry of Education will make available to the SALCC, the premises of the George Charles Secondary School as of August 15, 2016. As a result, all students and staff assigned to the George Charles Secondary School will be accommodated at the Jon Odlum Secondary School from September 05, 2016.

The Ministry of Education apologizes for any inconvenience caused, and requests the cooperation and support of parents and students, as it attempts to undertake the important repairs at the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College. The Ministry of Education will also provide transportation to staff and students of the George Charles Secondary School, desirous of this service.
