Monday 19th November, 2018-A senior official at the Central Board of Health says they will seek to assist in alleviating the problem that exists at Mary E. Pigott Primary School, where puddles of dirty water are posing a health risk to students.
Photos have been circulating on social media of the condition of part of the school’s compound, with allegations that one student had developed a skin rash as a result of the stagnant water.
Senior Public Health Inspector at CBH, Emile Floyd says the situation was only brought to the attention of CBH last week. He outlined that at least two issues were identified on their visit to the school.
Maintenance of school plants is the responsibility of the Board of Education and Floyd detailed that a report will be submitted shortly so that corrective measures can be taken.
