Tight-lipped

A HIVE OF ACTIVITY surrounded Grazettes Primary School yesterday as it continues to be under scrutiny for environmental reasons.

Education officials remain mum, but reports are that teachers are asking to be relocated as there are concerns that a foul odour at the school persists into the fourth week of the school year.

Although education officials could not be reached for confirmation, a teaching source said 12 teachers were not at work yesterday.

It was reported that teachers are complaining of itchy skin, headaches, hurting and runny eyes and throat problems.

​When a DAILY NATION team visited the school just after midday yesterday, children were still in class.

​President of the Barbados Union of Teachers, Pedro Shepherd, and public relations officer Dwayne Goddard were also seen leaving the school.

Goddard declined comment.
