Fifth form students at the Alexandra School have become bolder since industrial action at the St Peter school.
So bold, they have no problem with openly challenging the same senior teachers who withdrew their labour from the school in January, its guidance counsellor told a commission of inquiry yesterday.
Cyrilene Willoughby said since January, students continue to challenge staff as if they believe they are answerable only to principal Jeff Broomes.
“Their actions towards the senior staff was as if thinking when we [the students] were here and ready to work, you [senior staff] were not, and we aren’t ready now.
“They seemed to feel they would answer only to the principal, how and when they felt like it.”Please read the full story in today’s DAILY NATION, or in the eNATION edition.
