 The entrenched culture of secrecy, silence, non-response and pussy-footing that has been practiced by the School Board at Beersheba Primary School since September 2011 and up to the present time, is an impediment to James Richards Educational Trust Fund for which the School by a legal document – Deed Of Appointment and Termination James Richards Educational Trust Fund – is appointed by Bermuda Trust Company Limited (Former Trustee) as New Trustee for the Fund.

It is indeed sad and unfortunate that the Ministry of Education which along with Beersheba Primary School and Beersheba Old Students Association (BOSA) were required to acquiesce to there (3) criteria stipulated by Bermuda Trust Company Limited (Former Trustee) for James Richards Education Trust Fund, has adapted the culture t...

Goupthink Dominated Decision-Making At The First Meeting Of The Newly Appointed School Board At Beersheba Primary School, New Market, St. Elizabeth – Vincent Samuels

Not only would have acceptance by the newly appointed School Board of the recommendation made by the Retiring Principal and supported by Community Member on the School Board restore confidence by Parents in the Academic Administration, but it is understood, that the track rec...
