On Thursday morning the Ministry Of Education unveiled the 3D design and shape of the new Basseterre High School during a ceremony at the BHS site.
Government officials, teachers and students were among those in attendance at the ceremony at Ponds Extension to officially reveal a 3D model of the proposed new Basseterre High School.
This is the most recent step as plans proceed for the new BHS following the review of the drawings by the sub-committee of the Planning and Control Board.
Parliamentary Representative for Constituency #1, the Hon Ian Liburd said the government is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for the students of Basseterre High.
Minister of Education, the Hon Shawn Richards said the new Basseterre High is expected to be the most state of the art, technologically advanced high school in the Eastern Caribbean.
Among the proposed amenities are an auditorium and stage with a capacity to seat 1200, 32 classrooms, 2 dedicated music rooms, four Science labs, six computer labs, a dedicated Lecture Room, and five dedicated Vocational Workshops.
Other key features of the school include a playing field and running track sized to meet international standards, areas for hard court sports such as basketball and netball, bleachers for viewing sports on the playfield, a courtyard, library and a resource centre.
The project is being financed by the government to the tune of 80 million dollars.
