Hectic, but extremely satisfying.
That’s how Alexandra School principal Jeff Broomes has described the first week of the new term that saw students and teachers return to the St Peter institution, after it was in the news for all the wrong reasons as the focus of a five-week commission of inquiry during the summer recess.
“It was very tiring, but it was worth it. I’m satisfied with what we were able to achieve. The teachers are ready to give of their best and students have come with a good attitude,” the embattled principal told the SUNDAY SUN yesterday.
Broomes said the school now had ten new teachers and most of last week was spent getting on the same page. The teaching staff has gone through a notable transition since three teachers were assigned to other schools, another two retired from the teaching service, having applied to do so before the school year commenced, and two were on long leave.Please read the full story in today’s SUNDAY SUN, or in the eNATION edition.
