No mould: back to school Monday in Princes Town

THERE is no mould at the Princes Town East Secondary School, says the Ministry of Education.
For the past six weeks, although the school has not been officially closed, teachers and pupils have stayed away from classes citing the presence of mould.
Alicia Busby, the ministry’s communication specialist, said yesterday that tests were conducted by Caribbean Industrial Research Institute (Cariri).
Its conclusion was: “Based on the observations made during the site visit, test results obtained and the resulting indoor and outdoor ratios, there is no direct evidence to suggest that there is an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) issue due to fungal contamination, at the indoor areas included in this assessment.”
President of the school’s parent teacher association (PTA) Carlon Mohammed said teachers and pupils will return to school on Monday.
However, he said the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association (TTUTA) still needed to look at the report and agree to its findings.
He said if TTUTA was not satisfied with the results, teachers and pupils would once again stay away from classes.
