Education Dept Addresses T.N. Tatem Concerns

February 18, 2019

The Department of Education [DOE] is taking action after being notified that students and staff at the T.N. Tatem Middle School have shared concerns about potential mold in some parts of the building.

A spokesperson said, “The Department of Education [DOE] has been notified that students and staff at the T.N. Tatem Middle School have shared concerns about potential mold in some parts of the building.

“To address possible concerns such as these, the DOE took action by instituting ongoing mold checks at all public schools. As a result of these checks, one room at T.N. Tatem has been closed for an extended period of time.

“Earlier in the school year, all preschool, primary and middle schools were inspected and the second round of inspections for this school year commenced this month.

“As an immediate plan of action for T.N. Tatem Middle School, the Department of Education has arranged for a mold assessment to start today, 18 February, 2019 while simultaneously addressing the concerns that have been shared.”

Commissioner of Education, Kalmar Richards commented, “Our first priority is to ensure safe and healthy school facilities for the Bermuda Public School System.”

  1. Blast that OBA mold says:

    How the heck did it come back–it was supposed to be all gone when the PLP won the Gvt again.

    Its an OBA conspiracy!

      Definetly a conspiracy I saw Dunks and and Canno acting very suspiciously ’round ther the other day.

    • Whistling Frog says:

      It’s obvious whoever done the job didn’t do a good one. Whatever is causing the mold has not been rectified…

      The contractor that was paid for this needs to contacted and brought back and do what they got paid to fix..

    • Trump supporter says:

      Eventually all the blame they keep passing has to catch up.. but they’ll still blame everyone but themselves.
      Could be from the trash piling up.or the fumes from the buses, oh never mind.

    This just can’t be??? How can there be ANY MOLD in any school under the PLP??? Didn’t they banish it all after July 19th 2017. BTW where’s the Dept. of Education Report on all Schools Health & Safety that was done more than A YEAR AGO??? This PLP Govt. just goes from one disaster to another!!!

  3. 2 Bermudas says:

    I blame the media and the OBA. Hahahaha!!!

  4. Timbuc says:

    It’s not the government of the day. It’s the same ole W&E workers.

  5. Same old stuff.... says:

    Question, if this was any other Government building who would address the issue? Public works right? Like the court building currently up to be addressed. That being the case wouldn’t it make sense to have a Government mold remediation team? There will always be issues. This school will always have an issue. It’s built literally in a marsh area. I’d be curious to know if the neighboring houses have issue with mold from time to time. Willing to bet they do… do many of us in Bermuda. Address the moisture , throw out the damaged stuff and move on.

  6. Question says:

    Even with 25-11 they can’t be bothered to keep schools in good condition. Our educators and students are sitting in mold while politicians hold town hall meetings to discuss extending their power by taking over more assets. It’s disgraceful.
