School sewer line repaired

Saturday, March 8 2014

THE Cunupia Government Primary School opened yesterday, a week after it was closed due to sewer problems. Education Ministry officials said the school was closed due to a clogged sewer on the school compound. A foul smell wafting through the school led to teachers walking off the job.

A Ministry official stated that minor work was done on the sewer where there were faults with the pumps. The sewer line was cleared and while the Water and Sewage Authority (WASA) was working on the sewer system it was discovered that another line was broken and that too was repaired.

Minor repair work was being done yesterday at the school, but it did not affect operations as regular classes resumed with the Ministry official reporting that things were back to normal at the institution.

However teachers at the Tunapuna Government Primary School yesterday refused to attend classes until a sewer line in the female infantís bathroom is repaired. The Ministry official said the Education Facilities Company Limited (EFCL) was on site to assess the scope of work needed before a contractor could be hired.

However, it was emphasised that the work needed is minor and the cost could be covered by the repair fund each school has. At fire-damaged Charlieville Presbyterian Primary School, 19 Standard Five students will be attending school at the ASJA Primary School so they would not be behind in their preparation for the Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) exam.

On Saturday last, a fire at the school damaged a few classrooms leaving the students without space to have classes. The Ministry will relocate the Standard Four students on Monday and EFCL is preparing to demolish the burnt structure.
