New Antigua secondary school to ease crowded classrooms
Grant from China funding new school to accommodate 750 students.
ST. JOHN’S Antigua, Monday February 27, 2012 – Antigua is set to have a new secondary school to the tune of 75 RMB through a grant from the Chinese government.
Assistant director of education in charge of planning, Ms. Doristeen Etinoff said discussions between the Antigua and the Chinese governments on the construction of the Five Islands Secondary School were ongoing, as the building is expected to be completed by September 2013.
Once completed, the new school will be able to accommodate 750 students, and be divided into classrooms, a gymnasium, IT and Science Laboratories and have a music room.
The school is expected to ease some of the burden being placed on the heavily populated public secondary institutions which has resulted in over-crowded classrooms.
