Despite taking some knocks at a commission of inquiry, embattled principal of The Alexandra School, Jeff Broomes, is raring to go back to work today.
Nothing which had occurred at the probe had dampened his enthusiasm for teaching, Broomes told the DAILY NATION yesterday.
The principal had been the key figure in the just concluded public aspect of the Commission of Inquiry Into The Alexandra School, giving evidence and also listening to evidence criticizing or supporting him.
Broomes’ leadership style had come under fire at the inquiry, with some teachers saying he was dismissive of their concerns and disrespectful.
However, Broomes rejected the idea that the blame for the breakdown in relations between himself and teachers should fall on his shoulders.
Broomes was speaking to the DAILY NATION after a special service at the Prayer Warriors Fellowship Centre in Mapp Hill, St Michael, for students returning to school. (CA)
