Among the Six (6) schools that were relocated UMC Girls Primary and Secondary Schools, SDA Primary and Secondary Schools, God is Our Light Primary and Secondary Schools) only one school bus was provided. She informed the Commission that normal teaching Classes starts at 9:00am since the children had to struggle to the single Bus meant for the six schools.
