Strange smell in school forces students home

Strange smell sends students home

STUDENTS from the CEIP Paternina school in Calpe were sent home last week when a strange smell led teachers to suspect some sort of leak.

The school was closed as firefighters and the local police spent time conducting a thorough investigation.

The smell was found to be caused by the works being carried out in the Manzanera by Aguas de Calpe.

The works include the use of a resin that, when heated with water, gives off a strong odour.

The fumes are not toxic but brought teaching to a halt as the unbearable smell came up through the school’s toilets, particularly near the infant classrooms and was making students feel sick.
