The Newell High School in Southern St. Elizabeth, is set to benefit big from the Ministry of Education. The assistance will be for the building of a brand new Classroom Block at the school.
The commitment came from the Minister of Education, Senator Ruel Reid while on a tour of the School on Friday last. The Minister made the Commitment after the Principal of the school showed him the plans for the construction work and asked for support. The minister said he was very pleased with the proactive approach taken by school.
The Minister also had a firsthand view of a building that recently went up as a part of the Schools expansion plans.
Minister Reid was accompanied by the State Minister in the Ministry of Education, and, Member of parliament for South western St. Elizabeth, Floyd Green, Councillor and former Mayor of Black River, Jeremy Palmer alongside Board Chairman Jason Henzel and members of staff.
Newell High is amongst the schools that are having Classroom space constraints.
