KG VI Staff Demand Removal of Principal

King George VI teachers are still awaiting the Ministry of Education's decision on their submission to oust the current school Principal, Ms. Mary Hannah Kejoa.

According to a school staff, half of the teachers have signed the submission to oust the Principal who was said to not have performed her role as Principal for quite some time.

The source stated that Principal Kejoa rarely attends classes and other important activities organized by the school.

"The Parent Teachers Association rarely met this year and this has shown a lack of responsibility from the Principal to organize such meetings for the benefit of the school," says the source.

According to certain students, the motivation to attend classes has dropped because of the lack of attendance by the Principal and some of the staff.

"The ongoing row has disturbed our ability to concentrate to do well in school. In the end we do not want to attend classes knowing that we would not have teachers," says a student who wants to remain anonymous.

Meanwhile, it has also been revealed that the Ministry of Education has received submissions from the teachers; however any decision will be made by the Permanent Secretary.
