After weeks of allegations about the way he has managed the Alexandra School for the past 10 years, Principal Jeff Broomes is about to have his chance to respond.
Senior counsel to the Commission of Enquiry on Alexandra said today that Broomes would likely begin his evidence at the Wildey Gymnasium, Garfield Sobers Sports Complex from Monday, and was expected to be in the witness chair “through next week”.
Broomes testimony will come after a month of hearings, where witnesses, including current and past members of his teaching staff, past and present members of the school’s board of management, Ministry of Education officials, and representatives of the Barbados Secondary Teachers Union, gave evidence.
Today it was the turn of BSTU President Mary Redman, who will conclude her testimony tomorrow. She is to be immediately followed by former Alexandra board chairman, Joan Williams. (SC)
