Principal of May Pen High School in Clarendon, Winston Preddie, says students have been assigned toilet cleaning duties at the school for almost 40 years.

A parent told Nationwide News she was uncomfortable with the toilet cleaning duties which left their child anxious.

Mr. Preddie continued his defence of the school’s requirement that students clean the toilets they use at the institution.

Meanwhile, Mr Preddie says toilet cleaning duties have helped students become better adults. He says despite the policy, the school is inundated by applications each year.
