Headteacher of the Uitvlugt Secondary School, Mr. Keith Sampson who delivered the background, said that today, “we commissioned renewed purpose.”
He explained that in the past, the old building which the new structure has replaced housed the Zeeburg Secondary School. Further, he said that in 2016 a new Zeeburg Secondary School was built leaving the old structure wanting for purpose. He said that the building was later refurbished to serve as an annex to the Uitvlugt Secondary School. However, due to the visionary leadership of the Ministry of Education, a new secondary school materialized.
Meanwhile, Regional Vice-Chairperson Mr. Omesh Satyanand, said that only a few weeks ago the Region commissioned a new primary school in Tuschen. He said that the Regional Democratic Council is excited about the growth in education. He said that the region is experiencing wholistic growth especially in the education sector where more children are attending school.
Further, he referenced the School Feeding and Breakfast Programmes, the Vice-Chairperson that that the RDC is happy that children can attend school and receive breakfast or a snack. He said that the RDC is happy with the work the Ministry is doing in the region along with its officers and teachers in the classrooms. “You guys are doing a great job and that is why we are partnering with you to ensure that the delivery of education is second to none in this country,” he remarked.
Also present at today’s commission was the Regional Executive Officer, Jagnarine Somwar, the Regional Education Officer, Mr. Akbar Chindu, the Assistant Chief Education Officer (Secondary), Ms. Tiffany Harvey and the Assistant Chief Education Officer (Primary), Mr. Rabindra Singh.
