Jacks Hill Primary school in rural St. Andrew has been adopted by the Rural Water Supply Limited (RWSL) as its 2014 Labour Day project.

The school will benefit from significant improvement works to its plant on Friday, May 23.

Managing Director of RWSL, Audley Thompson told JIS News that, “when we looked at the school we saw where it needed some amount of refurbishment, so we decided to adopt the school as a Labour Day project to do some painting and cleaning up”.

The scope of works, aside from the painting exercise, involves rehabilitating the cracked tank, which serves the 78 students, and teachers and administrators.

Mr. Thompson said the RWSL is currently on a drive to rehabilitate and water-proof public water catchment tanks across the island and that this tank, would be given with the same priority.

Meanwhile, he informed that the company will carry out general clean-up activities, as well as make minor repairs to the drinking fountain.

Efforts are also underway to have members of the surrounding Jacks Hill community join forces with the RWSL team to make the exercise a labour of love and unity.
The RWSL is an agency of the Ministry of Water, Land, Environment, and Climate Change.
