The High School is inaugurated

The inauguration of the first phase of the new high school, comprising six large classrooms, took place on 23 January. The second storey is now nearing completion and in June the first 350 pupils will move into the school. Eventually, when the “arms” either side have been added, it will accommodate a thousand pupils.
