By BBN Staff: St. Matthew’s Government School can now accommodate over 100 more students, with its new building built through the Beyond the Horizon (BTH) 2017 project.

The school inaugurated the new 64×27 feet building, which houses three classrooms, this week.

Principal Michelle Murray Gordon, explained that the school intends to fit between 33-35 students in the classrooms, which gives the school the opportunity to take more students, as well as move forward with other plans such as a library and resource room.

She explained that prior to the building’s construction, the school was using a refurbished trailer building, however it limited the school capacity.

The BTH project is an US$11.5 million initiative, between the Government of Belize and the United States Army, South. The building was built with assistance from Belize Defense force, and soldiers from Trinidad and Tobago and Columbia, along with several volunteers from non-governmental organizations.

Apart from the building, the teams also built three  latrines and a septic tank in 12 weeks. The project is officially closing later this week.
