Calibishie residents say no to Government’s plans for construction of a Primary School on a community playing field, against their collective wish to preserve its integral role in the fabric of community life
Calibishie residents convened in a public meeting to articulate their discontent with the proposed utilization of the local playing field for the construction of the Calibishie primary school. The envisioned primary school is set to include various facilities, along with a dedicated playing ground for students. It appears that the community had rejected an earlier plan from the DLP government, but that plan is again presented recently for implementation without any modifications as earlier requested, and the community has again rejected it.
Residents emphasized the pivotal role this area plays in fostering community relationships and in enhancing sports activities in the area. Their dissatisfaction is driven by their collective desire to preserve the playing field's integral role in the fabric of community life. Everyone hopes the Parl Rep and the government are finally listening.
Meanwhile, in an interview with Emo News regarding the situation, Lakeyia Joseph, the Member of Parliament for the area, asserted that discussions transpired with the Ministry of Education and various stakeholders last week. Another meeting was slated for tomorrow Tuesday. Joseph claims that she aligns herself with the residents, endorsing their position that the playing field should not be repurposed for that construction project.
