Parents and Students Join Teachers in Protest at St. John Primary School

There will be no school at St. John Primary for a third day as parents and students join teachers in protest against environmental issues.  

From last Friday teachers refused to enter the building which they say is mold-infested, leading to respiratory illnesses and severe medical problems.

Speaking outside of the school. President of the Parents Teachers Association, Nicole Gill-Wilson, said the parents and students stand in solidarity with the teachers for the health of all.

She is asking for the school to be relocated.
