Hundreds of students turned out for school at St. Jago High School in Rivoli St. Catherine this morning despite yesterday’s gun battle between police and gunmen which spilled over onto the school compound.

The students were greeted by counsellors, church leaders, past students and political representatives, who visited the school to offer support.

Principal Sandra Swyer-Watson said classes have been suspended for today and the end of term exam will be rescheduled.

Senior Education Officer Claudette Clark said counsellors will be talking to students throughout the day.

Meanwhile, the police are maintaining a strong presence in the vicinity of the school.
