 Share This On:

(PRESS RELEASE) — The Sir Arthur Lewis Community College informs that agreed to cleaning and maintenance works, at the Morne Fortune Campus have been completed and authorization has been given by the Occupational Safety and Health Specialist in the Ministry of Labour for the resumption of classes.

The College further informs that because of major rehabilitation issues needing attention at the Goodlands Extension, the two units housed there will be relocated. Therefore, effective Wednesday, 7th November 2018, classes for the Department of Health Sciences (DHS) and the Division of Teacher Education and Educational Administration (DTEEA) will be relocated to the UWI Open Campus and the SALCC Campus at Morne Fortune.

The Ministry of Education and Cabinet, as promised in August this year, have released the first disbursement of funds. On Monday, 5th November the College collected a cheque of $1.5 million.

This money will be used to address some operational shortfalls and most importantly allow for commencement of the rehabilitation of two buildings on the Morne Fortune Campus.

When rehabilitated, these two buildings will better position the College to accommodate the Divisions that have been temporarily relocated.

The Board and Management would like to thank staff and students for their patience and support during this trying time. The safety of staff and students, as well as the provision of quality instruction for students, will always be a priority of the College.

  1. A great decision MUST BE TAKEN. Move this facility to the south of the island. The morne has no space. The only thing that should be kept on the morne as it stands is A Level. Everything else must move to the south. Now hear me out, I know where the populations centers are. But what must happen with expanding that place is that particular buses , not the mini-buses you all know, but real buses like buses in big country cities with card reader must be provided at various hours to shift the population from north to south. So students will buy a discounted bus card, flash it to open the bus and off they go specifically to the campus in the south. this means that students will be able to take the bus at a central station in castries and disembark and embark at that station. the bus is not for other passengers. with online payment for bus fare, it means that even overseas relatives can go online and pay a years bus fare for the students. and you all have a way of being ignorant when you all try new things in the land. you all will then need to create particular spots on the road for these buses to pull up too in designated areas. for instance only one stop in dennery, one in micoud, one in VFort. it means that the buses will not stop everywhere like normal bus. now spending millions make sense under those conditions. but now i asking myself, what you all did so much up the morne that cost me and generations present and future more than 1 million EC.
