The Ministry of Education promises teachers and parents of children at Belmont Primary School that everything is being done to keep the compound safe and secure, against the background of concerns in the aftermath of a recent shooting near the school.
Chief Education Officer, Dr. Ramona Archer-Bradshaw, and other education officials, met with teachers at the school this morning, some of whom reported ill yesterday forcing the closure of the school.
This was after they had shared with the school’s management their concerns about a shooting Saturday night in which the school’s gate was damaged.
Dr. Bradshaw spoke to journalists after this morning’s meeting at the school.
President of the Barbados Union of Teachers, Rudy Lovell, says teachers at the school recommended additional police patrols.
