No one was injured, but at least three cars were badly damaged by the bricks. The collapse of the lateral wall of a hall is believed to have been caused by strong winds as the three-storey structure is still under construction.
Children in classes overlooking the site were immediately evacuated.
“We are further informed that the incident occurred as a result of an exceptionally strong gust of wind that struck the wall which was still under construction and that no measures could have been taken to avoid or pre-empt the incident,” the parents were told.
The administration held meetings with all those involved in the construction project, including the contractor, architect and health and safety consultants. Furthermore, a decision was taken to keep the school closed tomorrow.
