QUESTION

TEACHERS’ QUARTERS AT MORAWHANNA

Could the Hon. Minister state whether the establishment of a Living Quarters for the Teachers at Morawhanna is in contemplation and if so, how soon will it be made a reality and if not, what arrangements are being put in place to alleviate the financial hardship of the Teachers who have to travel back and forth to attend school?

Answer

The establishment of a Living Quarters for Teachers at Morawhanna is in contemplation for 2014 budget. In the interim, a proposal has been put to the Regional Democratic Council to remove the existing building (old school building) at Unity Square to be relocated at Morawhanna for Teachers’ Quarters. The Regional Administration tried to secure a building to rent at Morawhanna but none could have found.
In order to alleviate the financial hardship of the teachers who have to travel back and forth to attend school a $30,000 housing/accommodation allowance is recommended.
