St Andrew’s must keep school say candidates

ST ANDREW’S School must be kept open, according to all the candidates at Friday night’s South-East district hustings.
The lively debate covered many different aspects of island life including whether the island should go independent, how to stop underage teenagers from drinking and what should be in the transport strategy.
But the candidates agreed on one issue – the parish primary school.
St Andrew’s School faced closure during the last States term as part of cost-cutting measures.
But all the candidates agreed that the school needed to stay open to keep alive the parish community.
- IT WAS standing room only at the West’s second hustings. Having initially allowed for only around 100 chairs, more were needed as the school hall at Le Rondin filled with around 200 people.
