Thieves hit Wilkie twice

Social Share

While the school’s watchman was out sick, thieves pounced on the Wilkie Cumberbatch Primary School – twice in one week.

The culprits first hit the Lascelles Terrace, Pine, St Michael school between Tuesday and Thursday morning.

When the Nation visited the school yesterday afternoon, it was closed early and parents were collecting their children while teaching staff were supervising the remaining students.

General secretary of the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT), Herbert Gittens, confirmed the incidents.

“The school contacted both the police and the ministry and I’m aware the children were outside awaiting the investigations and it seems at some point that officials from the ministry visited and a decision was made to close the school,” he said.
When asked about a night guard, Gittens said: “My understanding is that there is,but apparently he was ill the last couple days, so he was not on the compound.” (TG)
