Ellerslie School closed

Environmental problems have caused the closure of the Ellerslie Secondary School.

Officials closed the school after 10 am today, because of environmental problems.

A tree which is being cut down in the vicinity of the school as part of a cleanup programme was causing difficulties for students and staff, who were being affected by the pungent smell.

One staff member told Loop News:

"I was smelling something strange all week, but I wasn't really paying attention to it.

"But it was terrible today, because I was actually tasting it in my throat."

The school is expected to reopen on Monday.
