College students at an Adelaide main faculty have been moved from a classroom the place mud contaminated with lead fell from a ceiling. 

Black mud falling from the ceiling was reported earlier this month by a trainer at East Marden Main College, in Adelaide’s jap suburbs.

College students who had been within the classroom had been moved to the college fitness center.

Testing revealed the mud contained lead.

A letter to folks final week stated remediation work was underway and that the college was suggested that any danger to college students from publicity was very low.

It stated it was “not unusual to search out lead in ceiling mud of outdated buildings”.

“Ceiling mud can transfer into rooms beneath because of wind, ageing buildings or renovations and constructing works,” the letter from principal Julie James stated.

Testing in two different buildings constructed within the Sixties — a block of school rooms and the canteen — discovered no indicators of lead, however the canteen remains to be closed till remediation work is accomplished.

Complaints about communication

A dad or mum on the faculty wrote to the ABC saying she was involved in regards to the lack of communication from the college within the three weeks between the invention of the mud and the letter seen by the ABC.

“I am pissed off, scared and indignant,” the mom wrote.
