A brand new state of the art primary school was commissioned on Thursday January 16, 2008, at the Flats in St. John’s Parish IN Nevis and government officials have put the final cost in the region of EC$3.9 million.
The school was part of the civil works component of the Basic Education Project funded jointly by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) and the Nevis Island Administration (NIA). Construction began in November 2005 and was completed in early July 2007.
Prior to declaring the school opened, Premier of Nevis and Minister of Education the Hon. Joseph Parry shared the credit with the past Administration who had initiated the project and the Nevis Reformation Party led-Administration who ensured its completion.
He, however, pointed out that the winners were the people of Nevis in particular the people of St. John’s whom he told to embrace the new primary school as a shining light in their community and a new beginning.
