Calbert Thomas, Principal of Seaforth High School in St. Thomas
 
Seaforth High School in St. Thomas is reporting that all its students who sat the Caribbean Secondary Examination Certificate (CSEC) Visual Arts exam were successful despite being affected days before due to a fire at the institution in May.
 
The fire destroyed the Visual Arts Department while the Technical Drawing, Cosmetology and Building Technology Departments suffered water and smoke damage.
 
It was also reported that the School Based Assessments of some the 28 students who sat the CSEC exam were also destroyed.
 
Alternative arrangements were made to accommodate the students.
 
The Jamaica Fire Brigade said the fire was caused by an electrical short-circuit.
 
A $17.8 million contract was recently signed for the reconstruction of  the classroom block which housed the Visual Arts department.
 
However, Calbert Thomas, Principal of Seaforth High, said the building will not be completed in time for the start of the 2019/2020 academic year.
