Ellerton, St. George
Ellerton Primary School, located in the idyllic, rural community of Ellerton in St George is comprised of a primary or main school and a special education unit. The original school was built by the Anglican Church and was called St. Luke’s Ellerton. In the early 1980's a new school, funded by the World Bank, was constructed on the same site and was officially opened on March 21, 1983. The original building was remodelled and named in memory of former headmistress Ms. Almina Aimey. This building housed the Infant Department of the school until 1992 when the Infant Department joined the main school. That same year the now empty Almina Aimey block was converted into a facility to accommodate the special education unit. Both the primary school and the special education unit are coeducational, catering to students between the ages of four and twelve years old and five and twelve years old respectively. The main school has classes ranging from Nursery to Class 4. The Special Education Unit is arranged into four classes and caters to students with mental and physical disabilities.
