Impact on Education
Since the landslide makes the school, St Joseph's School, North Point, virtually unapproachable by taxis and conventional transport, the administration has declared an extended Puja festival vacation from today (26Sep2011) until 17Oct201.
Mt Hermon School, in the same area, is another institution which will decide on whether they should close early.
