A New School Building for CHS?

Last Updated: Wednesday, 29 November 2017 Published: Wednesday, 29 November 2017 Written by Isabella Prentice

On 18 September 2017, Hurricane Maria unleashed its fury on Dominica and the Convent High School (CHS) did not escape unscathed. The younger section of the school lost 80% of its roof, whilst the older section (110 years) lost its roof also but has been rendered unsafe as rains have soaked into the wooden flooring and in some areas mold have appeared in the wood and concrete. Parts of the Auditorium with wooden ceiling have also been impacted.

The initial cost of infrastructural damage to CHS has been valued at EC $3.63 million. The newer section needs to have the roof repaired; repairs have been estimated at EC$6,000,000, an official estimate has been prepared. In addition the school requires, laptops, printers, multimedia projectors, furniture - particularly desks - and other other teaching materials.

Maria has however offered us the opportunity to build a new climate resilient school. We have been toying with the idea so this is our chance!

The school appeals to all former students, benefactors and interested persons,organisation to assist us in this renovation and building.
