Parents, whose children attend the Gibson Primary School at Unity, Mahaica are disgusted at its deplorable condition and complained that electrical wires are exposed thus posing a danger to the children.
They called on the authorities to fix the problems urgently, lamenting that if their children are injured as a result of the electrical wires, no one would want to take responsibility.
The parents, who requested that their names not be mentioned, pointed out that “one side of the school doesn’t have windows and water would splash into a classroom and leak down in the class below.”
According to the parents, students from both classes then have to move until the rain is over. The ceiling is also rotten.
The parents also said there is only one toilet each for boys and girls and that the girls’ toilet is broken and has been left on the floor. They also said that the school is over-populated.
The parents have made reports to the Region Four administration but so far no one has come forward to investigate.
They pointed out that the school needs to be extended or replaced with a new one.
