Broomes: I had a dream


Share post:

Jeff Broomes has written a new book which is sure to stir up controversy.
Though he says it is about a dream he had, he admits that some people might associate its content with what happened at the Alexandra School.
“I had a dream and wrote about it and people will interpret it however they feel to interpret it,” said Broomes, principal of the Parkinson Memorial Secondary School, speaking after the launch of The Dream, at Parkinson on Tuesday.
While Broomes would not disclose whether the book was a tell-all about his time at the St Peter school, he did say there were those who would draw their own conclusions.
“People will say the colours on the cover represent the two schools, Alexandra and Parkinson,” he said. “I will not tell people how to interpret the book.
“I was asked if the book was about Alexandra. I said none of it is about Alexandra, but all off it can be about Alexandra. It’s all up to people’s interpretation.”
Broomes was principal of Alexandra until he was shifted to Parkinson last year January following a Commission of Inquiry into goings-on at that school.
Stating that he would not create legal issues for himself or anyone else, Broomes said he had a dream, recalled the dream, which at the end reminded him of life experiences he had.
“People may see themselves in it or they may not,” he said. “I’ve left that interpretation up to anybody . . . .” (SH-O)
