T&T: Five schools to remain closed due to quake damage

Trinidad Express:-  AS thousands of pupils across the country gear up for the start of the new school year tomorrow, some will be forced to remain at home as their schools were damaged in the recent earthquake.

Five schools will not be reopening as sche­duled due to structural issues serious enough to pose a danger to pupils and staff.

Education Minister An­thony Garcia said yesterday that engineers visited the schools in the wake of the magnitude 6.9 earthquake that occurred on August 21 and advised that they be closed.
