Water shortage keeps two schools closed
TWO Corporate Area schools — Dunoon Technical High and Dunrobin Primary — remained closed for a second day due to the lack of water.
Both schools, the education ministry said, are in the process of acquiring storage facilities.
According to the ministry, despite the challenges, other schools remained opened yesterday as they tried to conserve on the limited water that they had in storage, while the National Water Commission trucked water other schools in the Corporate Area.
Education Minister Ronald Thwaites has insisted that schools must remain open if possible and reminded administrators that where the lack of water has affected school opening the summer term should be used to make up for lost instructional time.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Education has again asked parents to provide children with water for drinking purpose and for the washing of their hands.
