 THE GRANTLEY ADAMS MEMORIAL SCHOOL student who was photographed holding a sign during a student protest last October, has been transferred to Daryll Jordan Secondary School in St Lucy.

 He was given the news when he returned to the Blackman’s, St Joseph secondary school on Tuesday after spending close to two months on suspension, including ten days at the Edna Nicholls Centre in St Peter.

 However, his father is not taking this lightly and intends to seek legal advice to challenge this decision.

 The upset father summoned the NATION to Grantley Adams Memorial on Tuesday after receiving the information via a telephone call from an official at the Ministry of Education.

 “I took my son back to school this morning and the principal took me to his office. He telephoned a Miss Warner at the Ministry of Education and she say that she and the rest decide that my child will be transferred to Daryll Jordan.”

 The father said he responded: “My child is not going down there. I prefer him to be home and I would send him to evening classes.

 “But Miss Warner tell me if I do that, I would get charged for keeping him home. So now I don’t know what to do,” he said.
