News understands that the board of Seaforth High school in St Thomas will convene for a ‘special meeting’ on Monday to confer on the fate of principal Calbert Thomas, and the school’s bursar, Noel Williamson, who were both sent on leave with immediate effect this week.

“The board already met this week, but there will be follow-up discussions on Monday to determine the fates of both gentlemen, pending further action. The men will remain off the job pending the outcome of investigations by the school’s Personnel Committee,” the source told News.

The decision to send the principal and bursar on leave followed a board meeting on Wednesday.

The flurry of meetings was triggered by the conclusion in a months-long investigation by the Ministry of Education, which uncovered several financial irregularities at the school, including the non-remittance of deductions.

In November last year, angry teachers staged a sit-in over two days at the school to protest the non-payment of deductions.
