Suspected Mold Infestation Forces Suspension of Classes At Babonneau Secondary

A suspected severe case of mold infestation at the Babonneau Secondary School forced the suspension of classes at the learning institution Tuesday, well informed sources have confirmed.

According to information obtained by St Lucia Times, students and teachers have been falling sick with doctors asserting that the illnesses must be linked to the school environment.

The conclusion was reached after medication that was prescribed for the illnesses made the symptoms disappear.

But the symptoms resurfaced once the affected persons returned to school, it was reported.

The Ministry of Education is understood to be investigating the matter.

Officials of the Department of Labour and the Saint Lucia Teachers Union (SLTU) have also gotten involved, an official familiar with the situation told St Lucia Times.
