Excelsior Teachers on Strike? Principal Says Not So

There’s more trouble at Excelsior High School in Belize City tonight.  Today, News Five received reports that several teachers didn’t show up to work and as a result, their students were hanging around on the campus during class hours. There was another report that a warden had to be called in to supervise one of the classrooms. This afternoon just after twelve, we visited the school on Faber’s Road to find out if there was any truth to these reports. The principal at the school told us that she wasn’t able to grant us an interview on the matter, but she said that there may be persons who want to create mischief. She said that only one teacher was out on sick leave and the reason the students were out of class is because they were on break. She also refuted the claim that a warden was teaching the students – she said the school doesn’t have a warden.  This evening we got the Chairman of the Board of Excelsior High School Javier Castellanos. He told us that he was at the school and was going to meet with the principal because he wasn’t aware of the reports circulating. We reached out to Castellanos just a few minutes ago to find out if there is any truth to the report but this time he has not responded to us. We’ll try to find out what’s going on Friday.
