Clean-up exercise at the Rochard Douglas Presbyterian Primary School
The Ministry of Education conducted a thorough clean-up exercise at the Rochard Douglas Presbyterian Primary School on Wednesday 26th June, 2019 following the discovery of a scorpion in one of the classrooms. This activity was done to ensure the health and safety of all students and teachers.
The three first year classes were relocated and the area cordoned off, while the furniture and cupboards in all classrooms were thoroughly cleaned and sanitised. The grounds man was instructed to cut the lawns and remove all debris and wash the drains and walkways.
The Principal has also engaged the Vector Control Unit of the Ministry of Health to spray the entire compound and surrounding areas.
The school also invited concerned parents to tour the compound to witness firsthand the cleaning and sanitisation exercise
