The Marie Grant Memorial School was established in 2004 and named in honour of the late Marie Grant,
a loved family member and respected elder in the community at Number Two River Village.
A percentage of Cockle Point's profits go to supporting the school, which accepts up to thirty children
a year who live locally and prepares them for primary school.
Prior to its establishment the nearest school
was a round trip walk of eight miles as there is no local public transport. This resulted in children in the village having
no access to any early education, leaving them disadvantaged in an already difficult environment. It accepts children of all
denominations in the local area. There are no fees for parents as all costs are met by the Trustees.
