Frank­field Pri­mary gets proper bath­room fa­cil­i­ties

Jamaica Gleaner - - ENTERTAINMENT -

THE FRANK­FIELD Pri­mary and In­fant School was es­tab­lished in 1910, and over the years, suc­ces­sive school ad­min­is­tra­tion has toiled hard to keep its fa­cil­i­ties in work­ing or­der. Its lat­est pro­ject was the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of the up­per school bath­rooms, which was of­fi­cially re­opened in time for the new school year.

Vasper Scar­lett, prin­ci­pal of the in­sti­tu­tion, said in 2012, they re­alised that the bath­room fa­cil­i­ties were in a de­plorable con­di­tion, and as such, de­cided to em­bark on a pro­ject to ren­o­vate them.

“We tried many dif­fer­ent op­tions, but to no avail, so we took the ini­tia­tive and de­cided that from a school per­spec­tive, we would at least try to do it on our own,” he told Ru­ral Xpress.

Scar­lett said the vice-prin­ci­pal was also in­stru­men­tal, as she was able to se­cure a sig­nif­i­cant do­na­tion from a mem­ber of the com­mu­nity.

Food For The Poor do­nated the tiles, which would have cost the school a tidy sum, while the rest of the money came from fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties as a re­sult of the ef­fort of teach­ers and stu­dents, which amounted to more than $100,000.
