Upset parents want answers
Anxious parents whose children attend Grazettes Primary complained yesterday that they were not getting enough information from education authorities about the environmental problem which has plagued the school since the start of the Michaelmas term three weeks ago.
Speculation ran high yesterday morning when many of them were summoned to the St Michael school for the fifth time since the beginning of the term to collect their children early.
As they gathered, some parents said they felt the problem stench was coming from a nearby cave, while others expressed fear that the school’s plight could mirror that of Louis Lynch Secondary School, which was plagued by an environmental problem for over 20 years before it was closed by the Ministry of Education.
Some of the parents who have lived in the Grazettes area for most of their lives, said the smell was coming from a nearby cave, which they pointed out was located behind the houses near to the school. (MB)
