Margibi County District#5 Representative Clarence G. Gahr broke ground for the construction of a modern elementary school over the weekend in Weala, Margibi County.
The project according to the construction engineers will take about three months to be fully completed.
According to Rep. Gahr, the project will contain six classrooms, a reading room, a teachers’ lounge, an office and storage facilities, male and female latrines, a dining hall, and a kitchen as well as a playground.
Rep. Gahr said the initiative is meant to reduce the challenges faced by some school-going children in that part of Weala and its environs.
Hundreds of students are expected to benefit from the facility when completed.
“We have come to reassure our commitment to the development of this district because in 2017 you did your part and it is time for us to pay back with development,” Rep. Gahr said.
Margibi County Superintendent Jerry Varnie lauded Rep. Gahr for what he described as “demonstrated commitment towards infrastructure development under the Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development.”
Supt. Varnie encouraged residents of Weala community to make the best use of the school facility when completed.
