Grantley Adams chair switch
George Griffith, the former head of the Barbados Family Planning Association, has been appointed the new chairman of the Grantley Adams Memorial School.
He was introduced to staff on Thursday when the Ministry of Education conducted an all-day meeting with the teachers and ancillary staff at Erdiston Teachers’ Training College. Griffith replaces former chairman Dr Jonathan Lewis.
An official who did not want to be identified because they were not authorised to speak to the media said the meeting was as a result of the investigation of the school which was conducted two weeks ago by Ministry officials and the full inspection which was conducted last year following a stabbing incident at the school.
Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw spent the day involved in the meeting through video conferencing from Miami, where she is receiving medical treatment. (MB)
