Education Minister Anthony Garcia says repair works have been completed at the Union Claxton Bay Secondary School. But, he says, the Ministry is waiting on the results of an air quality test to determine when classes can begin.
Garcia made the comments while responding to an urgent question in the Senate on Tuesday. He said the repairs were done as a result of concerns raised by teachers who mentioned health and safety issues, adding that repairs were completed to the satisfaction of the Occupational Health and Safety officials. Some of the work included renovations to the school’s Block E- they had to fix a burst water line at the school’s staff room.
Other issues to be addressed before school resumes includes conducting a scientific assessment of the interior surfaces of the staff room, and the sanitization of the inside of the administration building.
