STUDENTS OF THE St Angela’s and Ursuline Convent schools were sent home early yesterday after complaining of itchy skin, and feeling unwell.
St Angela’s School was closed early on Wednesday because of concerns over asbestos roofing from nearby buildings at the Enmore Facility at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
The schools’ administrator Susan Chinnery said the closure was a precautionary measure since staff was unsure what was causing the irritation.
Chinnery said that she would refrain from connecting the itchy skin complaints to concerns over the asbestos roof. However, she indicated that the school would remain closed until Monday as it would have to undergo industrial cleaning.
