Monrovia Consolidated School System (MCSS) Superintendent Benjamin Jacobs has said that US$3 million is needed to renovate the D. Twe Memorial High School and stop the advancement of sea erosion threatening the school.
Supt. Jacobs made the disclosure yesterday at the Ministry of Information press briefing in Monrovia.
He said the sea erosion is hampering the smooth learning of students at the school. “Assessments we have done (show that it will) cost nothing less than US$3 million to drag the sea and sand to the area to start major renovation.”
Jacobs indicated that the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning, General Services Agency, Lands, Mines Energy Ministry, Ministry of Public Works and the MCSS have formed a partnership that is discussing the reconditioning of the school.
“We can say that the sea is moving overtime in breaking the fence to the extent that fishermen can now bring their canoes into our school yard, but we want to assure the students and public that something positive is about to happen to re-awaken the spirit of the school,” Jacobs added.
