New school for St Martin gets the go-ahead
Saturday 10th November 2012, 5:00PM GMT.
A NEW primary school will be built in St Martin after plans were approved by the Environment Minister.
The project was given the go-ahead at a Ministerial Planning Meeting yesterday after the scheme was re-examined by Deputy Rob Duhamel. The issue has split parishioners over whether the school’s playing field should be built on, as per the approved plans, or whether the old school should be refurbished.
The project will go ahead provided Education, Sport and Culture Minister Patrick Ryan ensures that the parish football club can continue to train on the school field and that solar panels and thermal heating are given more consideration to help with the school’s energy needs.
