I was just listenng to Love FM and they had a report about developers trying to close the school? I only heard part of the report and was wondering if anyone else heard this report?

This mornings Reef Radio program with Senator Eiden Salazar discussed this and found that the entire story is no longer true.

The school should be relocated away from the future site of Ma'lo Ha Resort. That's why they built it in the middle of the swamp to begin with!

I heard the program and as is becoming more frequent much of the dialog was in Spanish. Thankfully Francis Wilson ran in (literally) and explained the situation. There does appear to be some pressure coming from somewhere to shut down the site. BBoy I think you are off base about MaloHa Resort. And I did not get the impression that the threat was not real. I think we all need to stay on top of this.

I am hearing that the consideration is to relocate the school - which I believe has been the goal of those that have brought up health and safety concerns over the past couple of years.

The site is not the ideal location for the school. Having 2 young kids myself I couldn't imagine them attending a school that doesn't have a decent playground, floods in the rains and high tide, and a few other factors regarding health and safety.

Perhaps improvements will come along with change.

I can't imagine the mentality that orders the school shut down with no warning in mid-term...throwing over 500 kids into the street with no alternative for them. Outrageous!
and that order came from a supposed Christian administrator at the Anglican Diocese...

I think that the sewage is a major problem and has never been adressed other than a letter to both newspapers which was followed in the next week editions by publishing petitions of how perfect the school is and that the sewage was and is not a problem(I am not a surveyor but the sewage imo has to be a major problem as it is going into the lagoon-I think) -they also tried to have an exorcism outside a particiular bar-go figure

So a mini-treatment plant would solve the sewage problem?
Apparently the exorcism didn't work.
