Vauxhall in, Graydon Sealy out

STUDENTS of Vauxhall Primary School will be back in the classroom today, but staff and students at Graydon Sealy Secondary School will be at home.

Classes ground to a halt last Wednesday after parents and staff raised concerns about an infestation of rats, termites and cockroaches at the Christ Church primary school.

Parents said their children were constantly ill and were out of classes for extended periods, while teachers complained of respiratory complications.

After a walk-through by Parent-Teacher Association president Adrian Husbands, parents decided not to allow their children back in the classrooms until the issue was addressed by the Ministry of Education.

Last Wednesday, Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw, Acting Chief Education Officer Joy Adamson and other ministry officials toured the compound for three hours and said classes would be closed for the rest of the week to allow for the start of refurbishment works, beginning with the female bathrooms, which would extend over the weekend.
