1 of the schools has 3 classrooms and can accommodate 135 pupils; 2 of the schools have 6 classrooms and each of the schools can accommodate up to 270 students. The 6 other constructed schools have 9 classrooms and can up to 405 pupils. The local beneficiaries were delighted with the new constructions because for the most part the schools were functioning in very precarious conditions under tents or inside wooden huts. The students present at the inaugurations demonstrated an immense pride in their new securely built classrooms which meet current earthquake and hurricane resistance standards. The Digicel Foundation is very happy to be getting closer to achieving its objective of constructing 150 schools by September 2014 and would also like to thank the above mentioned partners for their collaboration along the way.
