Education Minister Anthony Garcia says stakeholders are working together to resolve the issues facing Carapichaima East Secondary School.

The school has been closed almost 1 month now after teachers walked off the job on January 8th citing health and safety concerns due to a pigeon infestation at the school.

TTUTA head Lynsley Doodhai is quoted as saying that teachers experienced respiratory and skin problems because of the infestation.

Coming out of a meeting last week between the National Parent Teachers’ Association, the Education Ministry, TTUTA, and the school principal, agreed to develop a plan for a speedy resolution of the problem.

Meanwhile, according to NPTA President Raffiena Ali-Boodoosingh, parents are concerned about the length of time their children have been home this term.

Some Form five teachers at the school have however made arrangements to oversee SBAs for their students, which accounts for 40 per cent of the students’ CXC grade.
