Return date in limbo

It is still unclear when the Frederick Smith Secondary School will reopen for classes

.After more than six hours of talks behind closed doors, that started at 10 a.m., yesterday involving Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw, the school’s teachers and their trade union representatives, guidance counsellors and the police, no date for students to return to the Trents, St James school was agreed on.

The one thing certain is that there will be beefed up security when it does reopen. Bradshaw said the school will be a much safer place because officials have already started to implement upgraded security measures in response to the fatal stabbing of 16-year-old Temario Holder last Friday at the school. 

Another male Frederick Smith student was charged and remanded to the Government Industrial School Dodds yesterday.

Though Bradshaw was unable to say when the school would officially reopen, she promised that they were doing their best to work with all the affected parties.
