Resilient is the word being used to describe teachers and students of the Elmore Stoutt High School as they adapt to their new location at the old CTL building in Pasea.

Four weeks after the delayed start of the 2017/2018 academic year, Principal of the Elmore Stoutt High School, Sandy Underhill says teachers and students are adjusting and coping well with their new environment.

The high school suffered extensive damage when Hurricane Irma wreaked havoc on the BVI back in September and since October 5 has been relocated to the old CTL building which has been retrofitted to accommodate 36-classrooms.

During the past month, senior school students attended school on a shift system but from November 6, the junior students will return to the classroom. Students in Grades 7 – 9 will attend school from 8:00 a.m. to 12-noon while senior students will go from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

In this NEOC interview, Principal Underhill said teachers are committed to continuing the business of education and appealed for the support of parents and the wider community as they face the challenges of the new post Hurricane Irma reality.
