Pupils of Princes Town ASJA Pri-
mary School returned to classes yes-
terday after their parents kept them
away for the first week of the new
school term because of electrical
problems at the school.
While its electrical system has not
been upgraded by the Ministry of Edu-
cation as parents had requested last
week, they decided to send pupils back
to school after a private electrical
inspector found that air-conditioning
units, installed at the school two years
ago, were the source of the problem.
The units have been disconnected
from the main panel box and the pres-
ident of the school s Parent Teacher
Association, Alieam Hosein, says the
420 pupils are no longer in danger.
"We were advised last Wednesday
by the district supervisor to hire an
electrician to inspect the system and
determine the danger.
"He disconnected the units from the
panel box and told us there was no
longer any threat an electrical fire could
break out," Hosein said yesterday
He led almost 100 parents in three
days of protest last week, calling on
the Education Ministry to conduct an
overhaul of the school s electrical sys-
The parents kept their children away
from classes on the first day of the
new term, stating their lives were being
put at risk by the ministry s failure to

injury as he jumped out of the truck
when the container overturned
when he attempted to turn onto
Richmond Street from Queen
Sahadeo later explained why the
container had partially crushed the
passenger side of the truck s cab.
"I had no other choice because
there were two vehicles parked there
so I had to take the corner sharp,"
Questioned on the day of the
incident, Sahadeo claimed the con-
tainer had been properly secured
to the flatbed.
However, the claim was dis-
missed by police and customs offi-
cers at the site.
