Petauke Boarding High School to remain closed as schools re-open on Monday next week.

Petauke Boarding High School will remain closed as the schools re-open on Monday 13th May, 2013 due to poor sanitation at the institution.
The Magistrate Court on 11th April 2013, issued an order to close the school until the learning institution meets minimum health standards recommended by the court and the health inspectors.
And the epidemic preparedness meeting held at Petauke District health Office yesterday, issued a further warning to school authorities to abide by the court order.
This was after it was revealed that commemorations of the Labour Day on 1st May were held at the Petauke Boarding High School against the court order.
Members of the epidemic preparedness said that should there be any proof that social gatherings are taking place within the prohibited Petauke Boarding High School the School authority will face court prosecution.
Among the noted causes for closure of the school were that there is no water supply for flushing and cleaning the water closets at the boys and girls ablution blocks, dilapidated ablution blocks, open defecation by pupils and poor drainage systems from ablution blocks.
