UPDATE – Parkinson student remanded to GIS

A 15-year-old student of the Parkinson Memorial School appeared in court here today and was remanded to the Government Industrial School until May 10, when he will appear before the Juvenile Court.

He is charged with damaging a car belonging to a teacher, Lenora Headley, “without lawful excuse”, as well as “intending to damage the property or being reckless as to whether such property would be damaged”.

This follows an incident which occurred on the school compound yesterday.

Reports are that the suspended 15-year-old student made his way back onto the compound of The Pine, St Michael institution around 1 p.m. Wednesday and proceeded to damage Headley’s vehicle with a rock before he could be restrained.

Officials of the Ministry of Education and the Barbados Union of Teachers were called in with police.

The fourth form student was subsequently escorted off the compound by law enforcement officers.

    Why was this child remanded to GIS so quickly,where is the investigation, so because he damaged a teacher’s car he is now placed in the hands of the state?
    A lot of kids need psychological evaluation, Social Workers need to be attached to the school,my question is why did he do it,was this child unfaired,did he feel he was victimised,was this child crying out for help?
    Damaging the vehicle isn’t right,but there are more questions than answered,but what bothers me is there are some teachers doing a lot of crap to our kids,and nothing seems to come out of it but as soon as Something happens to a teacher we must gasp in terror.
    My son was hurt by a teacher and up to now she is still at the school,and after she ‘released of her wrong’,she then turned around in arrogance to show me she was untouchable, she showed no remorse for what she did,we are slowly becoming a nation of hypocrites.
