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.”
