Teachers of the Castries Comprehensive Secondary School,(CCSS), staged a sit in this morning at the school, in protest over unaddressed structural problems at the institution.
Explaining the reason for the action that began this morning, a reliable source told the Times that the protest follows years of reporting countless issues relating to the school building to the Ministry of Education.
“These reports have yielded no apparent seeds of interest by the powers that be,” the source told the Times, adding that the problems that have repeatedly been identified include serious leakages and cracks, as well as mildew and mold.
It has been reported that this week the Form 2 block had to be evacuated as a result of falling concrete.
“The students have been tutored in make-shift classrooms in the aisles outside,” according to the source.
The CCSS has an enrollment of about 790 students plus a staff of about sixty teachers.
Earlier this morning teachers of the school were holding a meeting to discuss their protest.
