(BARBADOS NATION) — Milton Lynch Primary School is now cow itch free.
Over the weekend, workers from CJC Building & Services were cleaning up the Water Street, Christ Church school and its environs following protest action from parents last week, which prompted a visit from Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw.
Business owner Timothy Chandler said workers removed the bush around the school and washed down the property to get rid of dust and lingering cow itch pods.
“We were concerned about dust and cow itch spores, so we washed the school down as well as the yard. We removed all the dirt which had accumulated around the windows, and yesterday [Saturday] was a major debushing project,” he said, adding they also washed away bird droppings.
Chandler said his team had removed multiple patches of cow itch and it had been completely cleared, along with all the rest of the bush which had been growing around the school.
