Making school days count at Discovery Bay All Age SchoolApplication Deadline:(7/1/2016)-The Discovery Bay All Age School in St. Ann, Jamaica was built to accommodate 350 students but enrolls as many as 600 in a given academic year. The school is so overcrowded, it has had to operate on a triple-shift system. This means less teaching time and a low-quality learning experience for students, despite teachers’ earnest efforts. On May 20, a delegation from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), including members of the Board of Directors, staff, and development partners, visited the school for a tour. What they saw was an expansion and rehabilitation intervention by the Bank’s Basic Needs Trust Fund (BNTF) nearing completion.

In May, the Institute added another space to benefit the community—the Leigh Richardson Knowledge Centre, which was completed with financing from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).
