Pigeon infestation force teachers’ walkout at Belmont Govt Primary School


    Five teach­ers walked out of class­es at the Bel­mont Gov­ern­ment Prima­ry School over concerns of a pos­si­ble health haz­ard from a pigeon infes­ta­tion.

    According to a Guardian report, that was the sit­u­a­tion on the reopening of the new school term yesterday.

    It stated that TTUTA Pres­i­dent Lyns­ley Doo­d­hai said while all schools opened, the union had re­ceived re­ports of the walkout due to a pi­geon infestation – a prob­lem that also ex­ist­ed last term.

    The article further stated that he said operations at the facility continued but he promised to raise the is­sue with the Min­istry.

    On the matter of school re­pairs, Mr Doo­d­hai reported that work was not done on more than 100 schools, in­clud­ing Cipero RC, Point Cumana Gov­ern­ment and Bam­boo Gov­ern­ment Prima­ry Schools.
