After killing of South East student:
Ministry to put protocols in place for victims
Protocols now have to be put in
place for students, teachers and
parents whose children have
fallen victims to gun violence.
This as the Ministry of Educa-
tion offered support to the fam-
ily of Kareem Forde, 16, who was
shot on Friday at his John John,
Laventille, home while he played
a video game.
On Saturday, the South East
Port-of-Spain Secondary School
Form Four student died.
Forde, who was anxiously
awaiting the reopening of school,
had hoped of pursuing a career in
In offering condolences to his
family and school, Education Min-
ister Anthony Garcia, at a press
conference at his ministry yester-
day, said officers of the Students
Support Services have already vis-
ited the school to offer a “measure
of support and encouragement”
to Forde’s classmates and teach-
ers. “From reports that came our
way, that student was one of the
dedicated students whose major
concern was the improvement of
himself and his ability to learn,”
Garcia said it was “unfortunate”
that Forde, who was a model stu-
dent, “was caught in the cross
fire.” Minister in the Ministry of
Education Dr Lovell Francis said
such cross fires have been hap-
pening too often.
“But we know of protocols, for
this is very frightening,” Francis
Garcia: Some setback as school reopens
The Ministry of Education yes-
terday admitted to facing several
challenges with the opening of
the new school term which in-
volved a bomb threat, fire, protest
and foreign objects placed in the
sewer system of some schools.
At a press conference yesterday
at his Port-of-Spain office, Edu-
cation Minister Anthony Garcia
said although there was a smooth
opening of all schools, they were
faced with some setback leading
up to and on the first day of the
new school term.
The first setback involved a
10 am bomb threat at Asja Boys’
College in San Fernando which
caused a major disruption in
On the compound of the col-
lege, Asja Girls’ Primary School is
housed. Students of both schools
had to be evacuated at Skinner
Park and Southern Academy for
the Performing Arts.
The threat led to Fire Ser-
vices being called in where they
searched classes and the com-
pound, but nothing was found,
said Chief Education Officer Har-
Classes were later resumed.
Garcia said on Sunday a con-
tractor undertaking work at the
Diego Martin RC School found
clothing stuffed in the sewer sys-
tem of the toilets.
Some of the items were unrec-
ognisable, he said.
However, Garcia said the con-
tractor was able to unclog the sys-
tem and the school was reopened
Garcia alluded that the clogging
could have been an act of sab-
otage, as “persons seemed hell
bent on disrupting the smooth
functioning of our schools. Unfor-
tunately I can only describe them
with deranged minds who are try-
ing their best to prove us wrong.”
Another issue involved a fire
at the San Juan South Secondary
School on Saturday evening.
On Sunday, ministry officials
visited the school and put meas-
ures in place to have its doors
“That was one set back we ex-
perienced,” Garcia said, stating
that the fire originated in the ceil-
ing and could have been triggered
by an electrical problem.
Outside the Princes Town Pres-
byterian Primary School No 1,
Garcia said parents staged a pro-
test demanding a new school for
their children. Students of the
school operate on a shift system
with Princes Town Presbyterian
Primary School No 2.
Garcia said his ministry could
not build a new school at this time
due to shortage of funds.
Teachers walk off job
On the first day of the new school
term, classes at the Biche RC Pri-
mary School came to an early end
yesterday when teachers walked out
in protest due to the high prevalence
of bat droppings.
The ten teachers, according to
president of the T&T Unified Teach-
ers’ Association (TTUTA) Lynsley
Doodhai, would continue to stay
away from school until the Ministry
of Education addresses the on-going
Bat droppings carry a fungus,
which if inhaled, can give lung in-
fection called histoplasmosis, which
can spread beyond the lungs and
into the whole body.
With regards to the opening of
all primary and secondary schools,
Doodhai said there were no glitches.
Asked if repairs to schools were
done in time for the new term, Doo-
dhai said for the Easter vacation
minimal work was undertaken, stat-
ing that the bulk of refurbishments
normally occur during
July/August vacation pe-
“The teachers walked
out of the job this morn-
ing because of bat drop-
pings. It has been an
months now. Surpris-
ingly it was not recti-
fied for this new school
term. They (teachers)
found the school to be
unsuitable to occupy
and they were con-
cerned about their health hence the
reason why the teachers left. We ad-
vised the teachers to stay home until
the ministry sort out the problem.”
Today, Doodhai will raise the mat-
ter with a delegation from the min-
istry, headed by deputy permanent
secretary in charge of school infra-
structure Kurt Mayers at its Port-of-
“I intend to raise the matter with
the ministry. If they want the teach-
ers to re-occupy the school they
have to make sure that the school’s
building and classrooms are safe to
one’s health. We are hoping that this
is dealt with urgently.”
Doodhai said as a result of the
walk out, classes were dismissed and
parents were notified to collect their
children around midday.
A new location was being sourced
by the school to house Standard Five
students who are due to write next
month’s Secondary Entrance Exami-
nation, Doodhai said.
