THE Wardstrip Demonstration Primary School in NCD had to be closed yesterday morning after sewerage waste flowed into the school yard.
The waste was reportedly from the staff houses at the neighbouring PNG Education Institute (PNGEI).
NCD education adviser Henao Tau Nauna visited the school yesterday morning and ordered that children should be sent home due to the health risks.
“We have notified all relevant authorities including PNGEI to immediately deal with the problem or it will affect the final week of school for students,” Wardstrip principal Sam Puwa said.
PNGEI could not be reached for comment.
