At the start of the new school term, students of the Corinth Government School in St. David returned to find a newly installed, 200ft guardrail at the school. The guardrail provides added safety for the students, teachers and visitors to the school by acting as a barrier between the schoolyard and the main road.
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 guardrail, 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 fifty thousand EC dollars, was constructed under the Grenlec Community Partnership Initiative, which focuses on enhancing education, sport, environment, technology and culture.
Grenlec thanks 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.
