Henry Appalled At Auxillary Fee Debacle


Principal of the St. Catherine-based Cumberland High School, Darien Henry, says he’s appalled that some schools are still referring to the fees parents are asked to pay as auxiliary fees.

Mr. Henry says parents on the Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education, PATH, are not discriminated against at Cumberland High.

But, Mr Henry says there are other needy students who are not being assisted by PATH.
