With a student population of 77 students and 5 teachers enrolled at the school, this makes Santa Rita Assemblies of God Primary School the smallest educational institution in Corozal Town. During the years the school has found ways to meet their basic needs so as to carry on with their main objective which is to offer quality education to students. But there is one main issue that is beyond the hands of the faculty, students and PTA that has prompted Principal Jesus Catzim to seek assistance from the business community.

“Our school needs urgent repairs with the zinc, the classes inside is leaking especially when it rains now so I saw to seek assistance from outside.”
