At the start of the new school term, students of the Corinth Government School in St David returned to find a newly installed, 200 ft guard rail at the school. The guard rail provides added safety for the students, teachers, and visitors to the school by acting as a barrier between the schoolyard and the main road.
Grenlec team members from the Parish of St David, joined the Principal, teachers, students and parents for a dedication ceremony to commemorate the completion of the project.
Mrs Joslyn Augustus–La Touche, School Principal remarked, “I can recall a number of instances where our students’ safety was threatened by vehicles running off the road and into the school yard. We are extremely happy to have this guard rail, which will offer protection to the students of our school for many years.”
Sean McQuilkin, Grenlec Supervisor added, “Safety is a very critical matter for Grenlec and the protection of our nations’ children is paramount. With the completion of this project, we are relieved that the students and staff of the school can learn, play and work in a safe environment.”
This project, valued at more than $50,000, was constructed under the Grenlec Community Partnership Initiative, which focuses on enhancing education, sport, environment, technology, and culture.
Grenlec thanks the Project Manager, Hugh Thomas (Geotechnical Investigation Services); Contractor–Benedict Clyne, and Road Officers from the Ministry of Works for their work and technical advice on the project.
