HANOVER, Jamaica:

The Education Ministry has appointed an acting principal for Hopewell High School in Hanover following news that the institution’s principal was sent on leave by the board.

The ministry says Leonie Dunwell will act as principal in the absence of Joyce Irving.

Irving has reportedly been sent on leave to allow the board to conduct an investigation into allegations of financial management breaches by the school’s administration.

The Education Ministry says its regional office in Montego Bay will continue to provide assistance to the board and management of Hopewell High.

Education Minister Ronald Thwaites has approved the actions of the board.

He says the school board acted within its competence in accordance with the Education Regulations, and he hopes that the inquiry will be completed and the matter resolved quickly.
