Chemical Disposal

Following a routine audit of chemicals in the Science lab it was noted that one chemical required further investigation. The school followed protocol by contacting a chemical waste disposal company, the Garda Síochána and the Ordnance Corps to remove it. The Ordnance Corps and the chemical waste disposal company were satisfied that proper procedures were followed and were happy to return at the agreed time of 6 am Wednesday,18th October to safely dispose of the chemical. They removed the chemical from the premises and carried out a controlled explosion. At no time was there a danger to students or staff.

I would like to thank everyone involved in the operation for their professionalism and for ensuring the safety of our school community.
