Fire forces school closure

Social Share

A BUSH FIRE close to Foundation School yesterday caused it to be closed early.
Through word from the Ministry of Education, almost 1 100 students, teaching and ancillary staff of the Church Hill, Christ Church school started leaving around 12:15 p.m.
Smoke and ash from the fire, which started around 9:45 a.m., blew through the school, upsetting those on the compound – asthmatics included.
When a DAILY NATION team visited the school around 11:30 a.m., students could be seen sitting on benches under trees and on the pasture while others walked around – the majority making an effort not to inhale the smoke by covering their nostrils with washcloths, school bags or their hands.
