Science teacher should be transferred
Science teacher Dwayne Bryan has been recommended transferred from the Alexandra School, in the Report of the Commission of Inquiry into activities at the Queen’s Street, St. Peter institution.
Bryan, who gave evidence before the Commission on August 2, 2012, was said to have “launched an attack on his Head of Department, Mrs. Amaida Greaves — unjustifiably so”.
“The commission was of the view that because of his close association with the principal he felt comfortable attacking Mrs. Greaves in his evidence before the commission. From the evidence led before the commission he came to the school on two occasions with alcohol on his breath. Mrs. Greaves spoke to him. He has borrowed money on two occasions from Mrs. Greaves. On the third occasion she refused him a loan.”
It added: “The commission recommends that it is in the best interest of the school that Mr. Bryan be transferred from Alexandra School.”
Section 9.36 of the report concluded that: “Based on the evidence it has heard, the commission has accepted that the staff of the Alexandra School have endured many years of an unhealthy and unhappy working relationship with the current principal. Apart from the recommendations it has already made for removing some of the more important players in this unhappy saga, the commission recommends that the Ministry take urgent steps to implement recommendations 3 and 4 of the Inspection Report which in April 2011 called for an immediate injection of funds for professional expertise to: i) help the staff to rebuild trust, collegiality and good inter-personal relationships; and ii) to find modalities for improving effective communication between the various stakeholders.” (LB)
