Another protest over conditions at Edinburgh Government Primary

Monday, November 11, 2019 - 12:30

Parents and teachers of the Edinburgh Government Primary School are expected to stage a protest in-front of the school, today, with support from the Oilfields Workers Trade Union.

Guardian Media understands that since the school reopened in September, several students have fallen ill with rashes, respiratory problems, severe itching and asthma attacks.

And last Wednesday, a teacher was taken to the Chaguanas Health Facility after she collapsed at the school, moments after complaining about feeling nauseous and dizzy.

According to the OWTU, the protest is meant to highlight major health related issues facing students.

The union says the school has a serious pigeon infestation and other health and safety issues.  It says parents and teachers are fed-up and frustrated with the lack of response to their complaints.
