THE FAMILIAR CHANTS of Up And On were nearly lost in the chaos that was last night’s Combermere town hall meeting.

After an emotional and heated meeting, a resolution was passed to formally put in place a committee to deal with the environmental issues which resulted in the indefinite closure of the school.

For nearly three hours, the only force keeping the hundreds gathered in check was Combermere School & Old Scholars’ Association (CSOSA) president Rolerick Sobers’ constant interjection.

Their anger stemmed from uncertainty as a result of the school’s closure last week following several health-related incidents that had caused previous temporary shutdowns.
