THE COMBERMERE SCHOOL campus at Waterford has been closed indefinitely.

And the Ministry of Education is now looking for alternative accommodation for the 1 000-odd students, four weeks before the scheduled end of the first term of the 2016-17 academic year.

This development yesterday followed persistent complaints of teachers and students falling ill after contending with persistent gaseous smells across the campus. Yesterday several teachers reported ill and did not turn up for work.

This was a worsening of the 2015 situation when authorities were forced to close the institution for four months and transfer students to two temporary locations at Erdiston Teacher Training College and the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic. (MR)
