Law q occupier liability?

Celia, who is five years old, attends The Rainbow Primary School. During a period of free play

in the garden, Celia slipped away from her teacher, Sharine. Celia wandered off, crossing the

infant and then the junior school field and climbing a very small fence to enter a restricted

area where she fell down a set of broken and disused steps to a disused building which were

slippery and half collapsed. She was unable to read the sign, which read ‘DANGER: REPAIRS

UNDERWAY’. Celia suffered a minor head injury and broke her arm. Her toy bear, Shaggy,

was broken.

Raymond, a part time teaching assistant who was on his way home, walked past the area of

the incident around 5 minutes after Celia fell. He saw Celia lying on the ground and crying.

He ran to help her, jumping over the fence before tripping on a tree root. The root had been

reported as dangerous to the School by the construction workers working to repair the

disused building a week prior. He broke his ankle.

Advise Celia and Raymond of any claims under the tort of occupier’s liability

    There are so many IMPOSSIBILITIES in your ABSURD hypothetical that it doesn't raise to the level of not being worth analyzing.

    Without knowing WHERE this is impossible to answer.  This isn't US Federal Law, and it's not International Law.  I'm trying to figure where "disused" is a common word.  This makes no sense - "disused building which were slippery and half collapsed." The disused building was slippery and half collapsed?


    It's obviously a cut and paste question.  If so, the original question is flawed.  Her toy was broken?  That's important?

    I have two suggestions:Post questions in English AND do your own homework.  The answer based on the law where I live is useless to you.
