The Ministry of Education is actively taking steps to address the problems facing the Aranguez North Secondary and Five Rivers Secondary Schools.

In a media release issued by the Ministry this morning, the problems at the Aranguez North Secondary School were noticed on the first day of the new school term, on Monday 11th April, when a suspected case of mold was discovered in sections of the school.

Swab samples were taken for testing and preliminary results are expected to be released soon.

News Power Now spoke with President of Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association, Devanand Sinanan
this morning. He said several steps are being taken to facilitate the students via a shift system.

When asked how the association is dealing with students who have been expelled or disruptive in the
classroom, Sinanan explained that the issue is a social one and appealed for parents to take control of
their children at home. He also said parents need to love and show appreciation for their young ones.
