  1. On arrival this morning, a member of janitorial staff noticed a smell coming from an isolated part of the school. The smell was not of natural gas and no alarms were activated.
  2. As a precaution, pupils and staff were not allowed into the building until the situation was assessed by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service. Pupils and staff went back into school by mid-morning and the affected area was isolated whilst further investigations were being carried out.
  3. Following investigations, the source of the smell was identified as coming from an old fridge in the staff area which had developed a leak over the weekend. The appliance has now been removed.
