The Education Ministry is working with the ACS Head of School to replace items that were burnt at the school’s dormitory today.
Permanent Secretary Alison Burchell says items such as clothing, toiletries and bedding will be purchased this afternoon through the Free Education Grant.
Burchell says some students have volunteered to move home and become day scholars while others will move into other dormitories for now.
She says no one was injured.
Burchell adds counselling which may be required is being coordinated by the Substance Abuse Advisory Council.
The Ministry would like to acknowledge the support provided by the supplier who has offered each student a replacement uniform at no cost.
