August 2012  The One Eleuthera Foundation, its partners and the PTA of Tarpum Bay Primary School worked together with Exceptional Education Opportunities (EEO) to renovate a classroom building at the Tarpum Bay Primary School to facilitate the proper education of the institution’s special needs students.

OEF ensured the renovation of the facility and the Windermere Island Foundation donated $25,000 for a special needs instructor to work with students three and a half days per week during the school year. It is hoped that this will serve as a pilot program that can be used in other schools on the island.
