More pain For parents

New information has come to light about the boarding school where a student died recently.

The parents of the student had gone to the school to seek an audience with the principal, but they were told they could not see him.

The distraught mother was in tears and sought relief with some teachers.

While they gave her sound advice, she desperately wanted to see the principal.

But to no avail.

The principal’s negative response rubbed salt in the wound.

The parents had lost their only son through a strange ailment, which started from a painful leg.

They left the school suffering from deep emotional hurt that would take time to heal. She and her husband headed straight to the Ministry of Education to lodge a complaint against the principal.

The latest is that they are taking the matter to court as they seek closure to this tragedy.

They strongly feel that someone should be held accountable.

BTL investigations reveal that the student had been sick for sometime.

The student complained of leg pain, but it appeared it was not treated effectively.

When the pain became unbearable the parents were called in, but the student’s condition deteriorated.

School holidays

Some teachers in this boarding school are asking why boarders who have finished their external exams are still wandering around the school.

The students should have gone to their homes and enjoy their holidays.

Because idleness is the tool of the devil, the fear is that there would be trouble if they remain in campus.

It happened.

Last week in the middle of a power blackout, teachers heard a student yelling.

It was later discovered that he had allegedly been sniffing glue. He has been reprimanded and his future in the institution could be in jeopardy.

‘Boss Lady’

They call her the “boss lady.”

Since joining this financial institution she has been flexing her muscles and making her presence felt.

A couple of staff have left because of her leadership style.

One was terminated.

It has been asked whether the “Boss Lady’’ got the top job in a fair and transparent manner.

She is apparently linked to an influential figure in the upper echelons of the business via a relationship.

Her job was not advertised.

Do we call it nepotism?
