    Dellwood Middle School: set to reopen on September 13

Dellwood Middle School is to open to students on Wednesday despite Ministry of Education plans to relocate pupils to alternative buildings in Hamilton.

The school has been undergoing major works including mould remediation.

Yesterday, education minister Diallo Rabain said: “I met with the principal, parents and staff to inform them that the Ministry of Health and the Government Health and Safety Officer have cleared the areas of concern for occupancy after receiving the air quality report carried out by an independent company.

“The repair work that was initially scheduled for six weeks has successfully been completed in four weeks, allowing for the school to reopen on Wednesday, September 13.

“Dellwood Middle School teachers will be able to access the school on Friday to allow them to take inventory of classroom needs. Teachers will use Monday and Tuesday to finalise classrooms and plan lessons for students.”

Mr Rabain added: “Finishing touches will continue this week and into next, but the essentials for teaching and learning will be in place for a successful school opening and school year.”

He thanked the Ministry of Public Works, the education facilities team, health department officers, custodians and contractors for their hard work.

Mr Rabain added: “I am grateful for the support of the Dellwood principal, Tina Duke, the PTSA and staff who have made every effort to ensure that our students have minimal disruption to their learning.”
