Parents want test results


Share post:

Despite its reopening yesterday, some parents of pupils of Sharon Primary School want to know where are the promised air quality tests for the businesses identified as potential sources of the environmental challenges that have plagued the St Thomas school over the past months.

Felicia Cox, a renewable energy co-ordinator and trained engineer, speaking on behalf of a group of parents outside the school, said while they were satisfied that improvements had been made to the plant, they were yet to feel assured there would not be a recurrence.

On Sunday in a statement, Deputy Chief Education Officer Joy Adamson announced the Ministry of Health had given the all-clear for classes to resume at Sharon Primary after a three-week closure.

“Preliminarily air quality tests have been conducted by a private firm at both the Maria Holder Nursery and Sharon Primary schools and no alarming levels of particulate matter were detected,” stated Adamson. “There will be continued monitoring around these two schools by three ministries, the Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training, the Ministry of Health and Wellness and the Ministry of Labour.” (SDB Media)
