Harris Academy - water damage repaired

Following constituents raising concerns about water damage to part of the Harris Academy building, following heavy rain, I raised the matter with the Education Department to get assurances that all would be well in terms of room condition by the start of the new term next month.

I have now received the following helpful feedback from the Education Department :

"I have contacted the Property Services Co-ordinator about this matter. He has confirmed that the recent heavy rain caused a leak in the roof of the 60's block of Harris Academy and that water seeped into some classrooms.

There was no significant damage, however, and the necessary repairs to the roof have already been carried out. It is not anticipated that there will be any disruption when pupils return in August."
