Manchester High School teacher wins reinstatement
A teacher who was fired by the Board of Management of Manchester High School, after 20 years of service has won her appeal at the Education Appeals Tribunal.

Sharon Welsh was dismissed on August 31 last year, on the grounds that she failed to provide lesson plans.

Attorney-at-law Andre Earle who represented Welsh had filed several grounds of appeal contending that there were several breaches.

The tribunal held that the statement of offence was not only imprecise but void of details contrary to the rules and principles of natural justice.

It was also the tribunal's finding that Welsh was not given a fair hearing, as she was not advised by the Personnel committee of the formal complaint which had been made against her.

Earle said he has since written to the Board demanding her immediate reinstatement and that all emoluments owed to her be paid.
