School repairs set to kick off with first three schools; Sr. Regina, St. Joseph and Leonald Conner

Operational repairs to nineteen schools, prioritized by the  Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth, and Sport (MECYS) are set to begin under the School Repairs activity of the Sint Maarten Trust Fund. Working in close collaboration with MECYS, various school boards and school managers, the National Recovery Program Bureau (NRPB) has been intensively preparing to ensure a smooth process with as minimal disruption as possible to students, parents and teachers.

Repair works have been separated into three batches as it would be near impossible to relocate all nineteen schools at the same time. Repairs to the first three schools, which include the  Leonald Conner School, the Sr. Regina School and the St. Joseph School, are expected to take approximately 100 days should no unanticipated issues be found during works. The construction time per school depends on various factors, including the extent of damages, the size of the school, and if the premises will be completely vacated during works or not. Works on a second batch of schools are anticipated to begin mid-May and the larger third batch later in the year. Read more...
