Ministry of Education, NECS PTA reach agreement

Broken windows at the school

The Parent Teachers Association (PTA) of the North East Comprehensive School (NECS) has reported that its needs will be catered for following a meeting with ministry of education personnel.

The meeting followed protest action that the institution took because of “unacceptable” learning conditions at the school.

Lighting at the school was one of the matters concerning the PTA and that will now be addressed, said PTA President Matthew Auguiste. “Education officials have looked into it and they have people on the ground who are making decisions as to the best materials to be used in those areas,” he said.

Chairs will also be distributed to the North East Comprehensive. “The walkway area, major concern at the school, is being attended to. In fact, discussions are going on in ensuring that things happen,” Auguiste added.

Students were kept home from school when the PTA executed a planned protest on November 21 to draw attention to infrastructural and other problems at the school.

Members of the PTA met with education officials on Monday and left hopeful that problems will be solved.

    The condition of the school looks like malicious damage by certain people which must stop.

      Why don’t you just shut-up, malicious damage by whom; you?

      What crap are you talking, it angers me when I find people drawing conclusions without any concept of how deep the problem.

      Do you live in Wesley?

      If you do and knows the culprits who may have caused the damages you suspect, why don’t you give their names to the police so that they can be arrested.

      If it looks like malicious damages to you, that would mean some persons or persons has vandalized public property, which is a felony, thus such persons belong in jail!

      Unless you have something to substantiate your silly suspicions, you need to simply shut you mouth.

      I am from Wesley you see, and I do not appreciate your belief that the children and adults of Wesley are idiots!
