Council members of an English Schools Foundation (ESF) school are discussing a walkout in protest at the sudden resignation of the principal. Michael Behennah quit King George V School on February 24 after a report by the British schools examiner reported a distrust of Mr Behennah among staff and said 'serious problems of management and communication' had to be resolved. The report also said the school had 'considerable strengths and a long tradition of academic achievement'. Parents, students and members of the 12-person Ho Man Tin school council said their support for Mr Behennah was ignored in a 'diabolical' ESF-led ousting. 'We are all wondering what our role is as a school council and whether or not there's any point in continuing services at the school,' said council member Eric Wai Yip-sing. The council will discuss its stance at a meeting tomorrow. Mr Wai said several members had hinted they might resign. Council chairman Ron Clibborn-Dyer told ESF chief executive Jennifer Wisker in a letter: 'What is going on at KGV is the most divisive action I've ever witnessed in the history of the ESF. 'Council members are deeply offended. Anybody who is part of the 'volte-face' should be deeply ashamed.' ESF senior education officer Trevor Higginbottom said Mr Behennah's resignation had been his own decision. 'Mr Behennah resigned honourably, for personal reasons,' he said. Mr Behennah's wife, Joy, said her husband was 'deeply saddened' by his departure. Mr Behennah has been sent letters of support from students and parents, who have also written to the South China Morning Post about the ESF's handling of the incident. 'I worry about my step-children's future in a school system that runs this way,' wrote one parent.
