It is week nine ofthe school year but teacher appointment woes have become disruptive for the Kilakila Secondary School inthe National Capital.
The school apparently has two principals leaving teachers and students’confused.
Teachershere say an expatriate who used to bethe deputy principle last year was promoted to principal this year whilethe principle was demoted to anther secondary school inthe city.
However,the latter refused to take up his new post and still occupiesthe principal’s office at Kilakila Secondary.
They wantthe NCD District Education Beard to quickly intervene as students’studies have been affected while teachers take sides to fight for the school’s high post.
Local staff also expressed dissatisfaction atthe appointment of expatriates to senior roles inthe school.
They claim thatthere are enough senior national teachers who are being overlooked inthe appointments.
There are seven expatriates currently teaching at this school; out of this, one isthe principle, one a deputy and two thers occupying Head of Department roles inthe school.
Officials fromthe NCD Education office were reluctant to comment on this; however, confirmed thatthe new principal ofthe school came with some teachers totheir office to seek clarification onthe appointments.
