Water flowing again

Three St Thomas schools closed due to a lack of water – Sharon Primary, Lester Vaughan Secondary and Maria Holder Nursery – were reopened yesterday.
Both the students and faculty were happy that water service had resumed after days of outages.
Principal of Lester Vaughan, Diana Wilson, said things were finally back on track.
“It was a bit offsetting after the fire [to close again] as it affected the fifth year exams but things are now well and the exams are in progress,” she said, referring to the recent fire at B’s Recycling.
As for the water flow, she said it was “slow but consistent”.
A Barbados Water Authority team was at Sharon Primary when the DAILY NATION team visited. Field officer Donavan Bennett said the school called them as the water was off that morning but by the time they arrived, water was flowing again. However, he said they decided to stay and asked the staff to collect water anyway as a precaution.
In addition, Bennett and operator Irvine Moseley allowed some of the children the fun of filling their water bottles straight from the truck.
All too was well at Maria Holder Nursery. However, the principal said she was not allowed to speak to THE NATION and any information would have to go through the Ministry of Education. (CA)
