MALVERN, St Elizabeth — Scores of students attending the Bethlehem Teachers’ College demonstrated at the institution in Malvern, St Elizabeth, Tuesday to protest what they say was negligence on the part of the school’s administration.
The protestors said that a residential student fell ill on campus at daybreak but had to wait until 8:40am for a taxi to take her to the Mandeville Hospital because no member of the administrative or teaching staff saw it fit to transport her.
Students first staged a silent protest at the college’s chapel Tuesday morning before taking their protest to the gate.
A student representative told the Observer that the college’s administration only agreed to meet with them following the arrival of a TV camera crew.
The student rep said that the meeting, which ended mid-afternoon, was inconclusive.
Attempts to get a response from the college’s administrative staff Tuesday afternoon failed, as members were said to be in a meeting to discuss the issue.
