The Department of Education Services is seeking bids for the construction of three new Year 6 classrooms at Red Bay Primary School.
The Request for Proposal, posted on the Cayman Islands government’s procurement site, also calls for modifying three existing classrooms into classrooms for Reception.
Each new Year 6 classroom would hold a maximum of 28 students apiece, while each Reception classroom would hold 24 students.
The current maximum capacity of Red Bay Primary is 516 students. The school is one of the most-crowded public primary schools in Cayman, with an occupancy rate of 86% as of September 2020.
The PACT government’s Strategic Policy Statement calls for creating Nursery classrooms in public schools, as part of the proposed $88.3 million in capital spending for the Ministry of Education over the next three years.
The window for bids closes 3 Nov.
The RFP calls for the project to start January 2022 and be completed June 2022.
