The final chapter at JBS has turned out to be highly eventful. This morning, in the course of sorting through a storage area used by staff, we came across A World War 2 grenade, thought to be inactive. The school is fortunate to have highly trained Science technicians who immediately advised us to take the precautionary measures of evacuating a proportion of the school and contacting the police for further advice. The students and staff evacuated the area calmly, and the police attended the school without delay. After examination of the item, the decision was taken by the police to carry out a controlled explosion to eliminate any possible risks.
At no point during the day was any student or member of staff in any danger. We would like to thank the police for their swift action, and are pleased that situation is now dealt with. We would also like to thank parents and students alike for recognising that this incident was professionally dealt with by the school and that it was an isolated incident. Student safety is our number one priority.
Enjoy your summer.
