Modular classes at the Cité scolaire open to Soualiga middle school students


President Daniel Gibbs and Rector Mostafa Fourar went together to the Robert Weinum School District on Monday
1er last April, to visit the six modular classes built in extension of the building to accommodate the students of the Soualiga College of Cul de Sac, destroyed by Hurricane Irma.

The President and the Rector were accompanied by Mrs. Annick Pétrus, Vice-President in charge of Education and by Mr. Michel Sanz, Head of Education in Saint-Martin. 

Since the start of the new school year in November 2017, students from Soualiga secondary school have been housed at the Robert Weinum school complex in Savannah, which in this context hosts a high school and two colleges. The community was therefore committed with the support of the Fondation de France to build modular classes to increase the capacity of the establishment. The delivery of these six modular classes was considerably delayed due to logistical problems which disrupted the school year. These six air-conditioned modules are now operational and welcomed the students at the opening of classes on Monday morning. Apart from the leak of an air conditioner in one of the classes which somewhat disturbed the teacher assigned to this room (the air conditioner will be changed tomorrow), integration into the new classes went very well for the of the students. The rooms have an area of ​​60m2 and are spacious enough to offer students good working conditions.

Welcomed by the principal of Robert Weinum High School, Mrs. Borel, the principal of Soualiga College, Mr. Frigo and the president of the Caisse Territoriale des Œuvres Scolaires (CTOS), Mrs. Laborde, President Gibbs and Rector Fourar first made a stop at the school restaurant of the establishment. They then visited the new classes and took the time to exchange with the college students and their teachers, welcoming the work efforts made under difficult conditions in recent months, also encouraging them to put their situation compared to other places. 

Anxious to be able to provide students with optimal learning conditions in the coming years, the community opted for the construction of a new 900 college by 2021. In the meantime, the community of Saint-Martin and the rectorate have ratified the creation of 14 additional modules for the next school year. This system will accommodate students from Soualiga college. The six modular classes built by the FDF will then be made available to high school students from Lycée Robert Weinum. As for the 4 Algéco classes which had been made available by the gendarmerie, they will be moved near the sports complex and will serve as changing rooms for the students and as a storage place for school materials.
