Ball change

Ball change Peter Vaughan. (FP)

The man credited with developing Alexandra School into a major cricket power and producing several outstanding players will leave the St Peter institution after 24 years as part of a shake-up of staff.

Peter Vaughan, a physical education teacher at Alexandra since 1988, is one of close to 20 teachers identified for transfers following the Frederick Waterman-led commission established to look into the affairs at the school.

After playing a key role in turning the once all-girls school into a cricket force, Vaughan has been earmarked for a move to Grantley Adams Memorial School in Blackmans, St Joseph.

While Vaughan, a resident of Walkers, St Andrew, declined comment on his transfer from the only school he has ever taught at, a parent of an Alexandra student who asked not to be identified, described the move as “a slap in the face”.

Very professional of Mr. Vaughan not to comment. We all know how the media can spin anything that is said no matter how innocent the statement may be.

An excellent article by Mr Gill...fine investigative journalism, Sir. I congratulate you. This is the type of journalism that must be encouraged.
Mr Gill's article has brought to light that Alexandra now is expected to have "an all-female PE department"!!
Doesn't this perfectly exemplify how little thought was given to this scandalous transfer scheme? Does this not clearly betray what little concern the powers-that-be have for the students? So what really is the motive behind this madness? Think about it!
