PARENTS AND TEACHERS of the Ursuline Convent want the general public to join them and lobby for the removal of the proposed Ebola isolation centre from next to the school’s compound at the Enmore Clinic.
Yesterday, the St Ursula’s and St Angela’s Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) launched a petition calling for the Ebola centre to be relocated and urged its members to collect signatures from across Barbados.
“Please consider printing the attached petiton and gathering signatures from relatives, neighbours, friends and deliver to the school for the attention of the PTA by Thursday morning,” said a letter emailed to the parents of the 600-plus students and signed by the association’s president Jackie Sealy.
School administrator Susanne Chenery said the results of the petition would be submitted to Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and Minister of Health John Boyce.
