Opening set for the first new high school
(CNS): The brand new but controversial Clifton Hunter High School has finally been given an official opening date. The state of the art facility which has been used as a political football for the last four years will open its doors to the first students on Monday 3 September. Education officials said Friday evening that special arrangements are being made for the new school which will begin with induction for Year 7 students from 8:00am to 12:00pm. Then on Tuesday, 4 September the School opens for Year 10 & 11 students with the school year starting for Year 7 on Wednesday, 5 September. On Thursday, 6 September Year 8 & 9 students begin the entry process.
There were no indications of any ribbon cuttings or special ceremonies, unlike the recent opening of the new block at George Town Primary, but the confirmation put pay to fears the building would not be ready in time for the new academic year.
Meanwhile, the students attending John Gray High School will do so at the old George Hicks Campus at 73 Academy Way, George Town. That school opens with induction for new students in year 7 on Tuesday 28 August from 8:00am to 12:00pm. The school will then open to all students on Wednesday 29 August.

Induction takes place on Monday and Tuesday 3-4 September for all students with the rest of the week being set aside for workplace advice & guidance.
