St. John School Receives Clean Bill of Health

April 1, 2004 - The Sudbury Catholic District School Board is pleased to announce that the St. John Catholic school in Garson has received a clean bill of health from Stantec Consulting Ltd., an independent environmental consulting firm.

The results of the mould testing conducted by Stantec revealed the presence of some mould concentrations at some locations within the school. Rossella Bagatto, Superintendent of Education for the Sudbury Catholic District School stated that according to the Stantec Report, “This low-level presence is not considered to be significant and is well within Health Canada guidelines. The results of the mould samples did not reveal the presence of Stachybotrys atra or other fungi of potential concern, with total concentrations of fungi also being very low. Therefore, the results of the mould samples are also considered to be within acceptable limits.”

Bagatto also reaffirmed that all renovations to the school have been completed which included the installation of new steel cladding and new windows on the entire older sections of the school. In addition, four large air exchangers have been installed to supply clean fresh air to all classrooms. Staff and students will resume classes at St. John school in Garson effective March 1, 2004 as scheduled.
