Ball change

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”.
