Trinidad: Mystery insects shut down Montrose Vedic school

MYSTERIOUS biting insects have caused a walkout by teachers and the shutdown of the Montrose Vedic School, in the second week of the school term.

Teachers and children alike have been taken to private and public health facilities for treatment of allergic reactions that have left red blotches and bumps on their faces, arms and legs.

President of the Parent Teachers Association (PTA) Larry Dilchan said this is an issue the school has been contending with since 2015, and suggestions for temporary relocation, a new school building or even a pre-fab building have not received positive responses.
