The Sydney School That Is Putting Its Pupils Lives 'At Risk'

A private school in Sydney’s West is accused of putting the lives of their students at risk due to a ‘defective’ second storey building, which has no sprinklers, a fire hydrant or emergency lighting.

Rissalah College, which teaches more than 500 students in Lakemba, has been sued by its former landlord in the Supreme Court over allegations it broke its lease and now owes more than $120,000 in unpaid rent.

Barrister Michael Elliott, SC, said the building posed "a very significant risk of fire" and put "the lives of the children at the school at risk".

The case goes back before the court in July.
