Tuesday, September 5, 2006 – The Centre for Adolescent Rehabilitation and Education - CARE has taken two of its centres to new premises in the Castries South East community of Odsan.

Executive Director Dr. Karleen Mason says the move is an effort to provide a learning environment which is conducive and comfortable for its students.

The Castries and Vigie Centres will be merged into one and students will occupy more spacious accommodations at the OD6 factory shell which is currently being reconfigured.

“First of all the Vigie building needed repairs and in terms of the Castries Centre we also thought it was time for us to relocate because there was a need for renovation to be undertaken at that centre. We were assisted in obtaining the new premises through the National Development Corporation. All students and parents were informed of the relocation and it has not impacted negatively at all. As a matter of fact I have been informed that registration numbers have increased. Provision is being made for transportation of trainees from Castries to Odsan.”

Mason says physical works are on schedule. Some 150 students are expected to turn up for registration on Wednesday, 06th September.

“There will be three classrooms, what we call the ADP (Adolescent Development Programmes classrooms and four skills classrooms). As well as the wash room areas, two offices and a computer room as well as a canteen and there's also a counselling room.”

The Centre for Adolescent Rehabilitation and Education was established on the island in 1993.
