School for class four students at Belmont

Class four students of the Belmont Primary School are being asked to report to school tomorrow, Wednesday, September 18th.

All other students, however, are to await instructions from the Ministry of Education about their return to school.

This is the latest information coming from the Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training.

According to a release from the Government Information Service Minister Santia Bradshaw has visited the school which closed early on Monday, due to complaints from teachers and students about a strong paint odour on the compound.

She’s announced that the students will be greeted by a new prefab bathroom facility and other improvements when they return to school next week.

The school was one of 41 schools renovated under the Ministry’s Schools
Summer Programme, this year.

One of the upgrades at Belmont Primary was repairs to the bathroom facilities.

And, one of the main areas of concern, the minister pointed out, was the girls’ bathroom, which had no partitions to separate the toilets.

Ms. Bradshaw says given the urgency to get the students back into school, they are going to have the contractor construct a prefab next to the existing bathroom and install the toilets by Saturday at the latest.
