By Tiffanne RamphalThe $50.2M newly commissioned Harold B. Davis Special SchoolYesterday, Government in association with the Ptolemy Reid Rehabilitation Centre (PRRC) commissioned a $50.2Million school building in the latter entity’s Carmichael Street compound for the purpose of educating children with disabilities. The commissioning coincided with the celebration of the centre’s 47th year of existence.The new institution is named The Harold B.

A plaque, in his honour, was unveiled as part of the proceedings.Among those present at the ceremony were His Excellency, President Donald Ramotar; Minister of Education,Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Online, Priya Manickchand; Minister of Finance, Dr. Ashni Singh, the wife and family members of the late Mr. Davis, members of the PRRC’s Board and Administration and representatives of the various ministries.Construction of the 4,Wholesale Jerseys,160 sq. ft Special School commenced in December 2012 and was undertaken by Nabi Construction Inc., while Deen & Partners Architects undertook its structural design.The school was designed not only to satisfy the Disability Act, but in accordance with the International Building Code (IBC) 2013 and according to the Finance Minister, “can withstand comparison with any of its kind anywhere in the world.”The edifice boasts three fully operational classrooms, one Informational Technology (IT) room and three washrooms; all uniquely constructed and furnished to meet the needs of children, who are differently-able.The building has four entry points, each with a trailing ramp that is customized with friction grooves and lined with grab-rails. The doors are built to specific measurements and the door locks are situated at lower points for the convenience of those seated in wheelchairs. The washroom facilities have also been constructed in accordance with international standards for persons living with disabilities; with grab rails and pull bars.Further, the classrooms were intricately designed and decorated so as to meet the needs of not only the students who are limited in terms of mobility, but those who have limitations in coordination.

He said that the different colours help the children to recognize one space from another.The new school also boasts an alarm system that utilises flashing lights, since ringing of the bells can be harsh and cause those impaired to become disoriented. In addition to these unique features and many others, the school was built to reduce both long-term and short-term physical abuse, according to Mr. Kamaludeen.“It was designed in such a way to take some amount of physical abuse and reduce maintenance costs,” he said.The appointed Head Teacher of the new Special School,Cheap Authentic Jerseys, Anand Mangru, during his brief remarks, identified that the project was initiated following one of the many visits by Former President, Bharrat Jagdeo, to the Centre.

The classroom sessions, at that time, were being housed in the upper flat of the original Ptolemy Reid building.According to Mangru, things began to fall into place soon after,Cheap NFL Jerseys, as the way was being made for the school to be brought to realization.
