Thread Name: Dead air in buildings - making you sick?
Subject: RE: Dead air in buildings - making you sick?
I suspect the school I'm working in at the moment of having sick building syndrome as both kids and staff have a constant stream of chest infections, colds, bugs and virii of assorted natures!

The heating consists of warm air being blown downwards by the windows and constantly being re-cycled. We can't get any decent fresh air inside as there are only tiny windows that open at the top. Somedays I actually look forwards to being on duty and going out onto the playground to breathe.

Planners - please be kind to teachers and think about fresh air.
