Rats invading schools in SVG!

Rat Infestation

There is a massive rat infestation at the Kingstown Preparatory School, according to 2 Cool Chris.  Another report indicates that the Buccament Secondary School is also invaded by rats. Apparently, the rodent population is growing out of control so the rats are now invading the schools in some areas around the country.

According to reports, the infestation at the Prep School had brought to the attention of the authorities for som time now. However, nothing was done.  When school re-opened on Tuesday this week, it was found that the problem had worsened. So, a decision was taken to fumigate the school buildings and surroundings even while students were in attendance.

Some parents got wind of the situation and needless to say they were hopping mad. Popular radio announcer and social activist 2 Cool Chris was among the irate parents who flocked the precincts of the Prep School yesterday to withdraw his child from the situation.

Naturally, the parents were angry at the fact that the authorities chose the first week of the new term to deal with a situation that could have been addressed during the two-week Christmas break. Furthermore, fumigation was being done while the kids were in school!

Meanwhile, a similar situation is said to be occurring at the Buccament Bay Secondary School.  Someone claiming to be a parent called into one of the radio talk shows and complained to the host. The caller indicated that the principal has been trying to get the ministry of health to send in a team for some weeks now. However, up to this time there has been no response, no action. The rats continue to overrun the compound.

There is a fear that the problem at Buccament could get worse. This school is situated in very close proximity to the internationally renowned Buccament Bay Resorts. Failure to address the problem may result in the rats chasing winter guests  away from this beautiful and luxurious establishment.

Vinci Kallaloo is looking into these matters and will attempt to keep our readers abreast with the developments in this regard

    People need to keep their surroundings clean and stop pointing fingers.

    This is a definite health risk for our children and citizens and should sparks great concern for the prime minister who sits on his butt while children are being infested with rats, yet he is claimed to be the best government in St. Vincent I do not want to ever see what the worst would be.
