COME SEPTEMBER the Alma Parris Memorial Secondary School will be closed.
This move by the Ministry of Education was confirmed by president of the Barbados Union of Teachers (BUT) Pedro Shepherd.
He said by the end of this term, teaching and non-teaching staff would know to which secondary schools they would be relocated.
According to reports, staff learned of the impending closure yesterday when they met with officials from the ministry.
Shepherd said he believed the ministry’s inability to cope with issues, including low morale and low attendance at the school, led to this decision.
The Alma Parris Memorial Secondary School is located in Speightstown, St Peter and was officially opened on September 25, 1995. (TG)
