Anyone for yard duty?
It has been labelled the “stinky school”. A high school that is subjected to a pong so powerful that, according to one family, children have been unable to eat outside at lunchtime.
A community consultation meeting last week was told that falling student numbers at Windsor High School have been blamed on the obnoxious odour that wafts across the area keeping windows at the school shut.
Local resident Kim Smith from lobby group, Stop The Stink In Windsor, said the locals had suffered for far too long from the smell from the Elf Farm Supplies composting facility.
A posting on the group’s Facebook page said a dance eisteddfodat the school had been overshadowed by the odour. “All the other dance groups were horrified at the smell. I really felt for the students and staff at that school.”
The school did not returns calls from Fairfax Media. The Department of Education said it had not received any complaints about the smell.
However, the member for Hawkesbury and Minister for Finance, Services and Property, Dominic Perrottet, is aware of the problem and said he is working closely with Elf Farm to help them get approval from the EPA to install new equipment to help alleviate the smells.
