Eki Vaki Primary School

Eki Vaki primary cleared for classes

The school was closed indefinitely when it was declared unfit for human occupancy by NCDC Health Inspectors owing to poor sanitary facilities, deteriorating classrooms and poor management of waste within the school.

Specific defects revealed by the inspection were deteriorating ablution buildings, malfunctioning water closets, no hand wash basins, toilets closed and insufficient sanitary facilities compared to the number of students and nil provision of drinking water taps.

Unhygienic facilities force school suspension

The indefinite suspension began last Thursday when students were sent home after an inspection by NCDC Health officers on March 8th.

This led to a suspension notice served on the school principal.

The sanitary facilities, classrooms and the management of waste did not comply with Chapter 226 of the Public Health Regulations Part III - on Sanitary Convenience.
