Some parents are upset about the delayed start of teaching at St Mary’s Primary school.
At the start of the Michaelmas school term on Monday, scores of parents showed up at the Mason Hall Street school from as early as 7:30 a.m.
They however were informed that some areas of the facility were still being cleaned, so the students would have to wait until that process was completed before they could enter the premises.
However, just after 9 a.m. some of the students were able to enter the classrooms.
The parents however told THE NATION that they felt the work was too last-minute.
St Mary’s was not listed as one of the other 20 government schools scheduled to begin next week due to incomplete maintenance work.
