Classes for senior students at Elmore Stoute High School resume today after being postponed on Tuesday, May 21.
This according to Chief Education Officer Connie George who assured that the postponement was ‘nothing of major concern’.
“The air conditioning unit was not up and running. We had a slight electrical problem and the building was hot, so we just decided we wouldn’t have them come at that time of the day,” George told BVI News.
She added: “We realise this time of the year it’s extremely hot and if we do not have the air condition, taking the children there would not have been beneficial at all and the people were working on the building to fix the problem so it didn’t make sense.”
With all the issues rectified, George did confirm the resuming of classes.
“It’s all fixed and up and going again,” the Chief Education Officer said.
Concerns were raised on Tuesday when the school released a bulletin stating that classes were “due to unforeseen reasons”.
