New Building for New Forest Infant School

28 Dec, 2018


The New Forest Infant School was established in 1948 and has been catering to students from Alligator Pond, Comma Pen, New Forest and surrounding communities.


The New Forest Infant School located in New Forest Manchester, has been transformed into a model school with the addition of a four-classroom block, staff room, kitchen and sick bay and the renovation of the existing structure. CHASE provided a grant of $43M.  The Minister of Education, Sen. the Hon. Ruel Reid, participated in the opening on November 29, 2018.  Billy Heaven, CHASE CEO, in his address to an audience made up of parents, teachers and members of the New Forest and other communities, noted that very high proportion of learning takes place from birth to age six.   Students, he said, “are at a crucial stage of life in terms of their physical, intellectual, emotional, social and creative development and must be provided with positive learning experiences.”
