Security Team, Surveillance & New Gate for Haile Selassie High School
SECURITY TEAM & SURVEILLANCE
SERGEANT AT ARMS
Provide a security gate at the entrance of the school and assign round-the-clock security team. It is recommended competent Sergeant of Arms provided by the Ethiopian World Federation, Inc.
On November 1, 2016, two students of Haile Selassie I High were viciously attacked by four youth and chopped walking home near the school. We would like to donate a security gate at the front entrance immediately. School Principal Mr. Lorenzo Ellis welcome any help and indicate that along with securing the grounds, there will soon be a need to construct five new classrooms along with a workshop for auto-mechanics as the student population grows.
Over the forty plus years since opening, the school has been grossly underfunded by the Jamaican government, despite being in the constituency of the former prime minister Portia Simpson. The campus facilities is deteriorating terribly. The school’s location is in one of the Kingstons poorest area, which hampers the staff’s ability to provide even basic educational and social service needs for the students. The school sits in the middle of a garrison between three rival gangs and oftentimes students lack the basic necessities to attend school.
Millions of dollars of tax payer dollars intended to fund school repairs are not accounted for to date. As a measure to increase security around the campus, the community leaders of Payne Land unified to help build a wall around the facility in 2013.
Electricity in the classrooms and proper water utilities on campus are also grossly inadequate and both services are in need of urgent and drastic improvement. Presently, the school is in need of a secure front gate at the entrance to the compound.
