Protecting kids in wake of asbestos scare

THE principal of a Warwick primary school has pledged to take additional precautionary measures to ensure the safety of young students after asbestos was detected on the oval.

Warwick Central State School principal Christine Dolley informed families the oval would be re-soiled, turfed and irrigated to give everyone “peace of mind” that all fragments of asbestos had been removed.

Ms Dolley said soil testing revealed a small amount of ‘fibro’ asbestos on the oval.

“The most pleasing part is to report that no asbestos in a fibrous state was found and air monitoring during the works done last weekend also confirmed that nothing unusual was detected in the air,” Ms Dolley wrote in a letter to WCSS parents and caregivers.
