    Kinswood Principal was trfrd for same reason - RC principal who was conducting a class on the sly without the knowledge of the education ministry was caught red handed , and he had not informed the education ministry of that. Moreover he had collected prohibitive fees to admit students to that class.

    Good move by the minister. However the crooks whithin the school, the SDS, in the RCU are still at large. They will gather arround the new Principal and try to continue their business.

    Reading the above comments make me wonder how a principal of a reputable school with high praise, suddenly get transferred without an explanation. Does anyone know the reason for this investigation?
