Chairman of the Board of May Pen Primary School, Fitz Mathis, says a meeting is to be held tomorrow to address issues that sparked another round of protest at the school yesterday.

Mathis says the meeting will involved representatives from the Ministry of Education Region Six, parents and the parent-teachers association.

Yesterday, students and teachers turned up at the school to find the gates padlocked by angry parents demanding that the principal resign or be removed.

They say a leaking classroom and a breakdown of their relationship with principal, Paul Scott, are just two of the reasons why they want him to leave.
