Not fit for class


Share post:

Just over a month after a late return to classes by children, some parents are fuming over conditions at St John Primary School.

The latest concerns relate to the amount of dust blowing into classrooms from a nearby mains-laying project being undertaken by the Barbados Water Authority (BWA). 

According to sources, students of Class 4, who were seated closest to the nearby Colleton Road junction, were mostly affected, with many of the windows on that side of the compound having to be closed. At least three students had to be sent home yesterday after suffering ill effects from the dust.

Vocal parent, Geoffrey Lashley, feared for the safety of the children as there was no traffic warden on mornings and evenings. (TG)
