page1a256SOUTH REWARD--Students of the St. Maarten Academy PSVE beamed with pride on Friday as their brand new Care and Technical Science Rooms were opened.

The rooms were funded by Dutch funding agency USONA for over NAf. 300,000 and took about two years to get to the point where Minister of Education Rhoda Arrindell could cut the ribbons and declare them open for usage. The Minister congratulated the school and students on their new facilities.

Invited dignitaries at the opening all heaped praise on The Department of Educational Research, Policy and Innovation (DERPI) and USONA, in particular its Managing Advisor Angela Dekker who was at DERPI when the project was initiated. Dekker was hailed as a key figure in the renovation of the two classrooms and thanked for her patience and dedication in working with the team at PSVE to realize the project.

Education Coordinator and Advisor to Foundation for Academic and Vocational Education (FAVE) Roberto Arrindell said despite having to fight hard for the rooms, PSVE can now boast of having a complete vocational school.

He thanked the teachers who made the canteen shade a working space, for their creativity in strange conditions and ability to still deliver quality education. He also urged the teachers, especially those who will be using the two new classrooms, not to be afraid to ask the school board for additional financing since the nature of the daily use of the rooms would probably require more financial commitments.

DERPI Project Manager of PSEV Zuleima Salmon thanked the school management and teachers for their cooperation and asked the students to take pride in their new classrooms.

Invited guests toured the new classrooms where presentations and demonstrations were provided by students of the care and technical science programmes.

(Additional coverage on the new classrooms and their functions will be featured in the next issue of Teen Times on April 4).
