On Friday June 12th the three ex-teachers and ex director finally had their court case against the SEF (Saba Educational Foundation). This is the foundation that did not renew their contracts for unknown reasons. I understand that during the hearing no ex-school board member was present, nor was Mr. Oleana, representative of OCW-BES present. He had to take an earlier flight home.This is based on the information presented by the Court in St. Maarten.
But I understand that the current SCS director, Mr. Hermans was present and was accompanying the SEF Lawyer. Together they formed the opposition against the teacher’s lawyer, Ms. Cindy Marica, Mr Terry Cunnningham and Mr. Hemmie van Xanten.
It surprises me completely that the current school board allowed Mr. Hermans a day off, just to be present during the court case, a case which is related to June 2014, before he came here, and has nothing to do with him. Why was he allowed to represent SEF and support the SEF lawyer? Why were the previous board members of SEF not present during this meeting to support their actions?
I understand that the Judge will rule on June 26th this month. We will see what comes out of this saga.
