Students suspended after fight with teacher in Dennery

Two students who were allegedly involved in a fight with a female teacher at the Clendon Mason Memorial School in Dennery have been suspended.

Reports reaching St. Lucia News Online (SNO) indicates that the police have also taken statements from both the students and teacher involved in the incident.

Officials of the Ministry of Education reportedly met with staff at the school today to discuss the incident, among other issues.

Reports are that the ministry has also requested a written report on the incident from the principal of the school.

Sources claim that students are allegedly responsible for the fight and were the aggressors.

A source told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that students are usually not allowed in other sections during recess. However, three fifth form boys were in the second form section.

Having noticed them, the female teacher involved in the incident pleaded with them to return to their section and reminded them that they were not supposed to be there.

However, the teenage students refused to adhere to the teacher’s request and in the process of leaving the area, they allegedly assaulted the teacher.

The teacher held on to one of the boys to calm him down, but instead she was allegedly punched in her face. The boys, according to the source, were also using obscene language.

It is also alleged that students at that specific school would usually threaten teachers. School administrators are said to be aware of this, but have failed to take action against the students.

A former teacher of the school also said the students are uncontrollable.

President of the Saint Lucia Teachers Union (SLTU) Julian Monrose has refused to comment on the issue, saying that he will do so once a full investigation is done.

Monrose claims he was only made aware of the incident through the media.

  2. Some teachers deserve it and the best part of it they are doing it for the respective kids that are been disrespected and abuse by the teachers. Sometimes if u dont think spiritually u behave just like the fools who believe that they have the power to rule, so what they would make u do is do like them, we have alot of educated fools teaching at the schools. When u tell me a teacher at ccss say he is diciplining a child in the present of his mates with 15 strokes on one hand is that not abuse. Have the kids stand on the chair, have them stay in at break without eating anything or going to the wash room and saying to hem u donot care who had or who did not have breakfast. Tell me! What are u doing? U only possessing the kids especially those from poor homes. This teacher is a DEMON and i want to say our power stays right here while we perish im hell. Evil teacher, i wish u evil all the days of your life. How can u punish good with evil.... I call u SATOR u no yourself

  10. Its a cynical individualism that's at play here: we look around and we see others who have done well in life - they have achieved certain things we haven't. We also see these people having certain previledges. We then start to think regardless of their achievements they are no better than us and we go on to act out that trend of thought in any way possible. Who the hell you think you are? You think you above me or what? They take these to the extreme most often for no reason at all. They don't take advise, they are concerned about their rights.....and hence respect becomes the causualty. And our young people themselves becomes tragic and the tragic thing is they don't even know that. How tragic..............!

  11. I think we have to wait to get the full story on this incident. I am by no means condoning this situation where a student raises their hand on a teacher. However, as a professional, the teacher must know when to withdraw herself from situations which can potentially result in such incidents. Yes it is true that a lot of our students don't respect teachers. But, a teacher should never go head to head with a student in a conflict. The students who are adolescence nowadays have no choice but to defend their reputation ( whatever that may be), while they are among their peers and they will fight the teacher if it takes that. The teacher should back down, walk away from the situation and call for help to deal with the student(s). This is not about a win-lose situation for the teacher. Teachers should have the responsibility to teach their students to walk away from conflicts.A lot of our teachers lack that kind of training; to deal with teacher student conflicts, and the MOE needs to step in before other similar incidents occur. If the students attacked the teacher for merely talking to them, then they should be expelled from the school so as to send a strong message to other students. But like i said, let's wait for the full story.

Indeed this is sad .I attended cmmss and we had big respect for teachers.when parents are fed up of the kids and can't wait for school to reopen.when boys see men beating down on their mothers.when girls seek for for money.this is how corrupt our school system will be.let us turn to God the source of our strength.no wonder when they cannot get their way the turn to suicide.smh so sad cmmss.so sad
