Winpea said through the kind courtesy of Ministry of Education a renovation work commenced on the school edifice in May 2012 and is expected to end January 15, 2013.
Mr. Winpea averred that the renovation on the school building include painting, removing and replacing of damaged doors and patching of verandas.
