ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - At this morning’s, September 10, 2014, 1st General Assembly of the Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS), Minister for Education and Culture Honourable Myron V. Walwyn announced several initiatives that would enhance the physical and other structures of the school as he implored all not to take matters of education lightly.

It was the occasion where the school’s newly appointed acting Principal Sandy M. Underhill made her debut address to teachers, administrators, students, the media and other key stakeholders in the Multi Purpose Complex in Road Town.

“I had to come by to say to you that the new Principal Ms Sandy M. Underhill has my full support as Minister (for) Education and Culture. I am asking teachers, I am asking parents, I am asking the wider community to support the school and support the initiatives of the school,” said the Hon Minister.

He said that for the 2015 there will be some critical changes made to aid in the process of making the environment for education more friendly, including the construction of a cafeteria, an auditorium and more importantly the division of the school into two sections, junior and senior.

Hon Walwyn said that currently architects are on the ground at the school working out the demarcations as to how they can design the separation of the two sections.

“So when we do all these things to improve education, to improve the environment for you, I am going to ask you to do one single thing for me, take your education seriously. Come to school prepared to learn… Take your responsibility as a student very seriously,” he challenged students of the ESHS as he wished them all a successful year ahead.

    Since Mr. Myron has such big plans for Elmore Stoutt High School, could he explain to us why his daughter is no longer going to the Elmore Stoutt High School? Is it because Mr. Myron, your plans are good enough for our kids but not good enough for yours? Enquiring minds want to know!!!

    What about expansions for BFEC school in Virgin Gorda , where our primary school kids still share the same school compound with the secondary kids? I ain't hear nobody talking about that. None of these ministers care about the other islands anyway. only when taking season comes and they looking for votes, then you will see all kind of people who you don't even know coming to events Talking farth and shaking your hands Pretending they so love you ect.

      You do realize that BFEC is an 'Educational Centre'? That it is one body with two divisions? Why should they have to be on two separate compounds? And where is the land and space to put up another school?

    Let's hope that the Minister truly supports the principal and efforts to improve discipline among other things.

    Instead of building a new junior high he is going to throw money away on the old site- the high school is too big sir- in fact it needs closing down completely- we need a new junior high - and please build it on crown lands not on someone's private property-
