The St Vincent and the Grenadines Teachers’ Union (SVGTU) is alarmed and extremely concerned about the deteriorating conditions at the New Adelphi Secondary School and calls on the Ministry of Education to take immediate action and implement the steps necessary to correct the situation.
The Union contends that the school is currently unfit for use as it poses a significant threat to the health and safety of staff and students and other users of the building.
The SVGTU has brought the matter to the attention of the relevant authorities and to date very little or nothing has been done to effectively address the matter.
In the meantime, the situation worsens as termites, rodents, mosquitoes, as well as the decaying structure, and the general state of disrepair, continue to create grave fear and anxiety among staff, students and parents who are understandably concerned about their health and safety.
The Union has issued an advisory to its members urging them not to enter the building until the authorities take immediate action and the steps necessary to address these concerns.
