West End and St David’s Primary Schools to remain open

It’s official. The West End Primary School will remain opened as will the St. David’s Primary School.

Both institutions were earmarked for closure as part of ongoing restructuring efforts of the public education system.

The change of heart was announced at a press conference held today at the St. David’s Primary School by Premier David Burt and Education Minister Diallo Rabain.

It was indicated during the press conference that West End Primary scored slightly higher in a history legacy assessment than did Somerset Primary.

“Therefore, the parish primary school for Sandys will be located at the West End Primary School site” according to government.

This of course means Somerset Primary will eventually no longer be.

Those being:
