Students of Petite Savanne Primary School slowly bouncing back in educational achievements following TS Erika
Students from one of the schools hardest hit by the passage of TS Erika are slowly bouncing back at least where education is concerned.
And that’s according to Ag Chief Education Officer Melena Fontaine.
In August 2015 Dominica was hit by TS Erika, and the entire Petite Savanne Community had to be relocated after the village was deemed unsafe to live in.
And Fontaine says despite all this the students of the Petite Savanne Primary School who are currently being housed at the Old Teacher’s College Campus at Bath Estate continue to excel academically.

On Wednesday, the students were recipients of a USD$32,000 multi-purpose room at their current lodgings. This project was funded by the Sandals foundation and coordinated by the Rotary Club of Dominica.
Director of Programs at the Sandals Foundation Heidi Clarke says although the country does not operate in Dominica they were distraught upon hearing of the damage caused by TS Erika and immediately looked at ways they could assist.
