Minister of Education, Nicolette Henry; Chief Education Officer (CEO), Marcel Hutson; and Head Mistress of St Paul’s Primary visited the home of the pupil who died under a goal post on Wednesday.
Glensean Skeete, a six-year-old, was killed when a goal post fell on him. He was at the time participating in sports practice at the Plaisance Community Centre Ground. He was reportedly ‘swinging’ on the post with another male pupil when the post fell on him.
