Education facilities commissioned in Deep South Rupununi

During the last 20 years of being in government, the PPP/C administration has been steadfast is ensuring that educational opportunities exist in all 10 Administrative Regions. This momentum has resulted in nursery, primary and secondary schools being constructed in many communities, particularly in the hinterland regions, where none existed.

In the hinterland regions, government has had to include the construction of teachers’ living quarters and students’ dorms to ensure both groups have accommodation thereby ensuring the delivery of education.

Over the last weekend the Ministry of Local Government and Regional Development carried out an outreach in Deep South Rupununi, Region 9 where meetings were held in several communities. Minister of Local Government and Regional Development, Ganga Persaud and Permanent Secretary, Collin Croal officially commissioned the rehabilitated $3.9M Shulinab primary school (Makushi Primary), $20.2M Katoonarib Primary teachers’ quarters and sanitary block, renovated Achawib Primary and rehabilitated Awarewaunau Nursery School valued at $2.5M.

The Katoonarib teachers’ quarters was built under the Education For All/ Fast Track Initiative (EFA/FTI) programme under the Education Ministry.

Minister Persaud recognised that the provision of the facilities is in tandem with government’s desire to ensure that greater comfort is experienced by Guyanese. He noted that it is hoped that investments such as these are cared for by the users, first, followed by the community and the regional administration. While the cost is high, the administration views it as a worthwhile venture since it aids the teaching and learning experience. In this regard, the parents were urged to ensure their children access secondary education which is available at St. Ignatius, Aishalton, Annai and Sand Creek in Region Nine. Before the current administration attained office in 1992 the Region only had one secondary institution, the St. Ignatius Community High School. Minister Persaud said government is pleased that it has been able to take teachers’ education to the Region through the in-service programme as such it is hoped that in years to come the teachers in the various communities would be those indigenous to the areas.

PS Croal stated that the commissioning of the facilities is an important activity for any regional programme and are manifestations of the PPP/C government’s policy of not only constructing new schools, but also maintaining and rehabilitating them.

He urged the children to ensure that the buildings are maintained and that they utilize the opportunity that is being made available for them to continue their studies in a conductive environment. He also indicated that the school uniform programme is also a part of government’s education policy through which uniforms are provided to school aged children across the hinterland while those on the coast receive vouchers.

The Village Councils and teachers expressed appreciation for the work done and stressed that they will ensure that the facilities are cared for.
