Classes ended prematurely this afternoon at St George Secondary after the school was closed due to a mosquito problem.
Following a visit to the school by officials from the Ministry of Health, school was dismissed just after 1 p.m. and will remain closed until Thursday, in an effort to bring the situation under control.
According to reports, the swarm of mosquitoes was breeding in an unused room on the school’s compound, heightening fear among both staff and students of contracting dengue fever.
