  1. This kind of journalism is just what Barbados needs. It is amusing, interesting, informative yet very eye-opening. Thanks for talking the time to discover what happened then share with all of us.

  2. Heh, I like that u tell it how it is and do not bother trying to sugar coat it. By the way, this post must be getting some traffic because I found it on the first page of yahoo

  3. Was Marcia Graham a principal of Queen’s College?
    I wish that the overall sense of this panel discussion was conveyed in the video – sexual issues, family time, drugs, child raising strategies were all discussed – this presentation has narrowed the focus to what the journalist’s agenda was when he attended the discussion on an uninvited basis.
    In the future, when I read this ‘paper’, I understand that I must do so with great skepticism.

  4. In fact, I was invited by two different parents… Ms Graham was a former Principal, she actually inferred the post created stress on her personally. Also what I attended was 2 hours, I do not know how many Bajans will wade through 2 hours of a video with all sides involved – they prefer edited highlights. It seems Ms Niles you have a bias yourself, shouldn’t you declare what ties you have to the current Headmaster? How can I have an agenda when I sought comment from the Education Minister, the Chairman of the QC Board and a teacher from Princess Margaret alleged to have been in a similar situation? All refused comment? So therefore in your view you are suggesting I should let the matter go? Your bias is very obvious to attempt a snide remark 4 months after the matter was originally released?
