The Ministry of Education has suspended classes at the Castries Comprehensive Secondary School, (CCSS), to facilitate major structural works.
The disclosure came today from Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Esther Brathwaite, following a sit-in protest by CCSS Teachers yesterday.
Emerging from a meeting with school officials, representatives of the Saint Lucia Teachers Union, and the Ministries of Education and Infrastructure, Brathwaite told the Times that the gathering discussed the issues and concerns of the Teachers and charted the way forward.
“We are actually looking at during the next few days to undertake through Ministry of Infrastructure, a number of major works which we hope will help the situation for now,” she said, adding that classes would be suspended facilitate the works.
Protesting CCSS Teachers had said they were tired of complaining about mold, falling concrete and other unaddressed issues at the school.
