Parents may go to court
The Ursuline Convent is reportedly making plans for a High Court challenge to the proposed setting up of an Ebola isolation centre which is feet away from the school at Collymore Rock, St Michael.
According to sources, lawyers representing the school are to file an application for an injunction seeking to halt the proposed operation of the centre, which is also to become a permanent infectious disease unit.
Reports also indicated that the school’s Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) will be circulating a petition urging signatures from parents of children attending St Angela’s and St Ursula’s schools, both under the umbrella of the Ursuline Convent.
The latest developments followed last night’s meeting between parents and a panel of senior Ministry of Health officials led by Permanent Secretary Tennyson Springer. (TS)
