Parents call for removal of dorm mother at Corriverton facility – Guyana Times
Citing several concerns regarding her conduct, residents of two Amerindian communities, Orealla and Siparuta, are calling for the removal of the mother of the dormitory at the Corriverton facility.
The facility is being managed by Ann Dick but after numerous complaints about her being ineffective in running the facility, parents are calling for her removal. Orealla/Siparuta Councillor with responsibility for education, Angela Devair explained that the issue lies with both the male and female dormitories.
She said the students’ conversations are being recorded. Devair also claimed that the students were not receiving proper meals and were not being properly supervised in using the internet service during study time.
Thesius Henry served in that capacity from January to September this year. He said in January, students were having very poor grades, with some only being able to attain 17 per cent of total marks and none of the boys being able to attain 50 per cent.
“None of the boys reached fifty per cent; that was bad. I saw that as a problem so I tried to tackle the problem. However, the dorm mother had her husband there and he was telling me how I should do my job.
Meanwhile, she admitted that she was instructed not to have her husband at the facility, noting that the decision was taken after residents of the two Amerindian communities of Orealla and Siparuta did not want him here. “He still comes around like if I cook, he would come for his food,” she told this publication.
