Student ‘staked out’ under tree during exams


Share post:

A FOURTH FORM student at the Parkinson Memorial School fears he will not get into fifth form next year because he is made to sit under a tree while promotion examinations are going on.
Yesterday, the 15-year-old’s mother Annette Bowen came to the WEEKEND NATION, seeking public attention on the matter.
 She claimed that she has not received answers from the school’s principal Jeff Broomes or Education Ministry officials as to why her son was under a tree for the past four days, apparently as punishment for refusing to paint a wall which, it was alleged,he defaced.
“This is the fourth dayI went to the school andhe under the tree sitting on a bench. I don’t understand; every day my child go to school he is put to sit under a tree,” the mother said.  (AH)
