Five New High Schools to Be Built Across Jamaica
Five new schools are reportedly scheduled to be built at locations across the island in a bid to ease overcrowding.
The new schools will be constructed in Old Harbour – St Catherine, Christiana – Manchester, and the parishes – St Ann and St James.
According to The Star, Education Minister Ruel Reid says:
“We have about 85 primary schools and about 166 high schools. Now that we have extended opportunities for everybody to be in high school, we do not have enough, so we need to build some more. Even if five is not adequate, it will take pressure off the high schools”.
He made the disclosure while speaking to reporters recently.
The project was reportedly undertaken by the Jamaica Social Investment Fund at a cost of $83.1 million.
