Rose Hill RC resumes under tight security

Teachers and pupils of the Rose Hill RC Primary School in Laventille returned to classes yesterday for the first time since the school was temporarily shut down.

This followed a shooting incident between warring gangs last week.

Members of the TTPS and Defence Force were on hand to ensure there was no disruption of the kind that forced children to duck for cover under their desks last week.

After being monitored outside and ushered onto the compound in some cases by the law enforcement officers, the children had a meeting with school principal Charlene Quamina before they returned to their respective classes. They also had a prayer session and assembly.

Also present at the school for yesterday’s reopening were Catholic Education Board of Management (CEBM) CEO Sharon Mangroo, Port-of-Spain South MP Keith Scotland and officers from the Inter-Agency Task Force’s Hearts and Minds programme.
