Deep rural St Mary school, Camberwell Primary, has received an upgrade to its bathrooms with replacement of the pit latrines with flushable toilets.
The upgraded facilities were made possible through a donation from the JN Foundation and Food For the Poor, under the Flush For Life Programme, which is geared to eradicate pit latrines in schools. The bathrooms were officially handed over to the school on March 14. Stephanie Thomas-Christie, acting principal of Camberwell Primary School, commended JN Foundation and Food for the Poor for their donation.
