Principal also hired daughter and niece
ALEXANDRA PRINCIPAL Jeff Broomes didn’t hire just his cousin to work at the school. He also hired his own daughter and a niece to complete secretarial work at the St Peter institution.
This was revealed to The Alexandra School Commission of Inquiry yesterday by Senator Velma Newton, a former chairman of the school’s board of management.
According to Senator Newton, when it was brought to her attention that Broomes had in fact hired family members, she approached him, and he did not deny it.
“I asked him if it was true. He said yes. I asked why. He said he could trust them,” the witness told the commission.
