March 18, 2016: Clean up operations have begun at the El Dorado East Secondary School after a fire broke out on Thursday March 17th, 2016 at approximately 1.45 pm. The cause of the fire is yet to be determined.
Initial reports indicate the fire took place in the ceiling of a Form Four classroom located at Block E, Room 41 and was subsequently contained by security officials who were alerted and responded with fire extinguishers. Firefighters then managed to extinguish the fire.
Students from Forms 1 to 4 who occupy Block E were asked to stay away from classes today as there is water damage in the adjacent classrooms. However, students writing mock examinations were asked to attend classes.
