UPDATED: School WILL Now Reopen On Monday

school 2 2014The Head Teacher of the Five Islands School says the Carn Gwaval base will be able to open as expected on Monday 5th January after the Council confirmed the necessary water repairs have already been undertaken.

Earlier today, Linda Todd said the school site would remain closed after the Christmas holidays because of planned disruption to water supplies on Monday and possibly Tuesday.

The Council, the water authority for St Mary’s, was warning that residents between Buzza Hill and Old Town may face interruption to their supply on the 5th.

But Linda says the Council has now confirmed that there will be no disruption to supplies to the school because the planned works to the hydrant have had to be undertaken today as an emergency repair.

That means pupils will not be getting an extra day’s holiday and the school will be opening as normal.
