Lengua Parents want a School. Now!

Lengua parents are upset, in other words they are damn mad. Just imagine that over 3 years ago the Lengua Presbyterian School was declared a hazard and abandoned. The students have been accommodated at the Inverness Presbyterian Primary school since their school was declared a hazard.
Now the question has to be asked, what really is the priority of the government? The Education Minister, Esther Le Gendre, needs to address the concerns of these protesting parents immediately. They want to know when the school is going to be rebuilt. After all this is all about the 20/20 vision plans, right?
Recently we saw $400M approved for the purchase of an aircraft that was done literally overnight. So the Minister needs to explain why after 3 years nothing has been done to remedy the problem in Lengua.
The funny thing is that this government is good at putting up new buildings, just check out Port-of-Spain; there are new buildings all over with others currently in various phases of construction.
Build the school for the children – they are our future!

Hello my friend,
Lengua is located in the County of Victoria. I guess you don't know the joke that everything South of the Caroni River is of no importance... well except the money making centers ... black gold!

Lengua Presbyterian Primary School was closed by the Ministry of Health on June 5th 2005. The staff and students are housed at Inverness Presbyterian School. These schools are located in Barrackpore, a rural community.

Hope the Government makes good on their promises and the children get their school. Education for all is the new thrust...that means it be equitably distributed.
