AN ALTERNATIVE SITE for Combermere students is among several suggestions to deal with the ongoing environmental concerns there.

Full details were not disclosed, but president of the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union (BSTU), Mary Redman, told the DAILY NATION three possible locations in the St Michael area were put forward by the union during a near three-hour meeting at the Ministry of Education yesterday.

Minister of Education Ronald Jones would have the final say on what was likely to happen when school reopens on Monday, and where students would be receiving instruction.

Ten children reportedly fell ill on Tuesday, the first day of school, and had to return home. It was a continuation of the situation which has existed for almost the entire school year, with teachers and students reporting symptoms including dizziness, burning sensations around the mouth, respiratory discomfort, nausea and headaches.
