Kindergarten Closed After Asbestos Discovery
A kindergarten in Warragul has been closed for the time being, following the discovery of asbestos.
Specialists removed the deadly material from oen of the locations but the site will remain closed until the other two locations have been made safe.
The Baw Baw Shire Council said the two sites were not intact , nor were they an active part of the centre where children or staff are at risk.
“To mitigate any chance of inadvertent exposure during the ongoing renovations it was deemed in the best interest of everyone to suspend kinder activities at the site until this additional asbestos could be removed,” the shire said in a statement.
The council is collaborating with the builder, the site supervisor and an independent asbestos assessor to remove the asbestos as swiftly as possible and it is anticipated children will return to kinder on Thursday.
