   The new classroom building is underway at P. Nufio School in Politilly Bight. The school approached local residents Janice Carter and Don Rocks to help buy a few blocks to start a new classroom. The students were meeting in the outdoors because the other 2 classrooms were overcrowded. This morphed into a project supported by the Roatan Children's Fund and Rotary Club of Roatan. At the ground breaking ceremony the village volunteer workers with the help of  Mr. Carson Dilbert had prepared the area, trenched the main outline and begun laying the blocks. The classroom will also have a small storage facility for sports equipment and supplies. Rotary President, Dr. Charles Parchment spoke on behalf of Rotary Club of Roatan reminding students that education is one of the most important elements of their lives. Rotary will not only contribute monies for materials for the classroom but will also repair the bathrooms as part of it's Banos Para Ninos Project. Dr Parchment hopes this type project will be supported in many more schools in need on Roatan.
