Grazettes going to church


Share post:

Until the environmental problem plaguing the Grazettes Primary School is solved, its close to 300 students will attend classes in two Seventh-Day Adventist churches not far away.

And Government is promising that students who will sit the Common Entrance Exam next year will have “extra attention” because of a need to catch up after missing classes because of the school’s repeated closures this term.

Chief Education Officer Laurie King and his deputy Karen Best made the announcements yesterday evening during an at times noisy meeting in which some of the more than 200 parents and guardians of students at Grazettes Primary vented their anger about a fogging exercise that went awry.

The students and their teachers are being transferred to the Breath of Life Church in White Hall and the Ebenezer Church in Eden Lodge from Monday.

King told the meeting at the Ellerslie Secondary School the shift would probably last two to three weeks and during that time the cleaning of the school would continue.

Best said students from Classes 1 to 4 would be accommodated at Breath of Life, while younger schoolchildren from Nursery, Reception and Infants A and B would go to the Ebenezer.
