A cramped building complied with poor electrical wiring and a mosquito infestation are just some of the problems students and teachers have to endure.
The Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers’ Association (TTUTA) declared that the building was unfit for occupation.
Yesterday nine teachers walked off the job citing fears for their health and safety along with a number of other concerns.
Angry parents gathered outside the school and told members of the media that this situation is putting their children’s education at risk.
The ministry of education had attempted to move the school to the old Arima New Government Primary School building, but this was met with opposition mainly form the Mayor George Hadeed.
One parent said they wanted the school fixed rather than relocated.
Secretary General of the Sanatan Dharma Maha Sabha (SDMS) Satnarayan Maharaj met with the principal and teachers of the school where they told him their concerns.
