Yesterday, adding to the list of completed school plant renovations made by the Ministry of Education, the Administration building at the All Saints Secondary School, which was destroyed by fire in February of last year, has been completed. The state of the art structure will house the faculty and staff of the school, having been described as their second home. The new building contains desk space for teachers and administrators, as well as bathrooms and storage areas.
As a first in Antigua, APUA has also installed fiber for which will supply the institution with the fastest internet available presently on the island, a welcome addition in a time when the internet is an essential tool for education.
The e-textbooks that the ministry has been working feverishly to make available will be piloted at the All Saints Secondary School making it the first school on the island to benefit from the technology.
Minister of Education, the Honourable Michael Browne expressed his pride in the accomplishments that the students and teachers have made despite the obvious setbacks after losing so much in the fire. He commented that other schools should not be jealous of the improvements made at ASSS because schools are provided with what is needed and all schools do not have the same requirements. He proudly proclaimed “Promise made, promise kept” as the students, teachers and invited guests joyously echoed his sentiment.
