Children get week free after school ceiling falls in

It wasn’t the lesson that brought down the house this time. Children have been sent home from a primary school in The Hague after part of the ceiling fell in during strong winds and rain, reports Omroep West.

The children in group 5b at Leyenburg school had already departed and nobody was injured. But further investigations revealed that the ceiling in other parts of the building also needed replacing, and so the children have the rest of the week off.
