A facilities manager at the Department of Education was recognised for his efforts to advance the refurbishment of Lyceum Preschool.

Dwayne Caisey was chosen as the April recipient for his role in co-ordinating teams from the department, the Ministry of Public Works, the Education Reform Unit and private contractors.

Pupils from Lyceum Preschool in Hamilton Parish had lessons at the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo for eight months as work was carried out for Francis Patton Primary School to become one of Bermuda's first parish primary schools.

The scope of work was extensive in order to create the School Transformation Team’s vision for a 21st-century learning environment.

Mr Caisey received a formal commendation from the Education Reform Unit for his collaboration and leadership skills.

David Burt congratulated Mr Caisey and said: “Having worked with Mr Caisey in several different roles since I became Premier, I have seen first-hand his dedication as a public officer.

“It is great to see him recognised for his work in supervising and coordinating the works at Lyceum Preschool and ensuring the safety of students and staff amid ongoing construction.

“Dwayne is a consummate professional and I congratulate him for this recognition.”

Lyceum Preschool’s renovated outdoor spaces and classrooms feature ten benches with umbrellas, planter boxes and STEM centres for interactive learning.

Fresh paint, new flooring, lighting and furniture were designed to create a modern and vibrant environment.

Pupils returned to their new school in April and a grand reopening is anticipated to take place in September.

Cherie Whitter, the Head of the Public Service, added: “Bravo, Mr Caisey. You’ve made a significant impact on the success of this project through effective leadership, a well-defined plan and a commitment to excellence.

“The entire public service executive extends its gratitude and appreciation for your ongoing contributions.”
