Ministry to provide support to staff, students following teacher’s “tragic death”


    The Education Ministry says the Student Support Services Division and Employee Assistance Progamme will provide support to staff and students of the Preysal Secondary School following the death of Suzette Sylvester.

    Ms Sylvester’s lifeless body was found at her Preysal home this morning, hours after she got into an argument with a relative.

    The TTPS says a male relative is currently assisting with enquiries.

    The Ministry says Ms Sylvester moved to Preysal High School in September 2016, after 15 years of service at El Dorado West Secondary School.

    It notes the events that led to her death with great concern, and is hopeful the perpetrator can be brought to justice.

    Students and colleagues have described Ms Sylvester as beautiful, humble, motherly and a kind soul who was always full of joy.
