Classes suspended at the Enmore Hope Primary school after angry parents and students protest
Classes were suspended at the Enmore Hope Primary school this morning as angry parents and students protested the deplorable state of the school.
According to the parents the foundation of the building seems to be deteriorating, cracks are appearing in the columns, the roof of the building is leaking, the windows around the building are in a terrible state and animals are using the yard as a grazing pasture due to the broken down fence.
The parents said that since the 2005 flood they have been experiencing problems at the school and wrote to the authorities on numerous occasions, but never got a reply.
Engineers from the Region four regional democratic council and education officials quickly got to the scene to have an assessment of the extent of the repairs that need to be done at the school.
The officials told capitol news that a team from the PTA will be working with the region to fix the many problems facing the school.
Enmore Hope primary has just over 800 students.
