Asbestos closes Zwolle "best school"

. ()

1600 students of the Thorbecke School community in Zwolle were kept away from classes Thursday when school management reported that there was asbestos in the buildings. The initiative to have the standard asbestos tests carried out came from management.

The school located at Dr. van Heesweg in Zwolle was closed; students and teachers will hear tomorrow when classes will resume, and where they will be held.

The Thorbecke School Community made the news earlier this month, when local newspaper Volkskrant published an annual list of "best schools in the Netherlands". Thorbecke got the highest score possible, a 10.
