Samuel: Two bad situations

 Arima MP Rodger Samuel said he will be meeting with Education Minister Dr Tim Gopeesingh tomorrow to discuss the status of Arima Central Secondary School and Arima Hindu School.

 He said they were dealing with “two very bad situations” and he was optimistic about finding a speedy resolution. 

In a telephone interview yesterday, Samuel said: “There was a meeting today (yesterday). It was held with the PTA and the Arima Central Secondary principal.  We will decide how we should deal with it, but Arima Hindu School needs to be relocated. They  are on a cesspit.  Arima Central Secondary is about 53 years old. It  has problems with its infrastructure, like wooden floors. Wood lice has eaten a lot of the building.” 

Samuel added: “I am meeting with Gopeesingh tomorrow and we should have something tangible on the way forward.  I understand their plight. We have to try and find  feasible solutions. Arima Central Secondary is a very successful school. I have been working with them even before I became MP. I am not about bacchanal and confusion, I am about what is best for the schools.”
