Students claim school is haunted

9 posts in this topic

Students from a popular Corporate Area high school say that evil spirits from a nearby cemetery have been plaguing their place of learning.

THE STAR was told that so familiar are the ghosts, that they do regular visits and call students by their names.

"Di duppy dem call five a wi name and even di teacher it go inna. Dem write with blood inna di bathroom mirror and di other day di duppy come back two different times and all sprain our teacher foot," one of the students said

Our news team got confirmation from residents of a community close to the school that the institution is built near to a popular cemetery.

"Yea man, a real ting. Don't mek me tell you, jus go by the school and mek di students dem tell you what's going on," a woman from the nearby community said.

The group of second-form students said one of the ghosts in particular, who is known as 'Pamela', is very popular among them and when she appears, she calls them by their names.

Every school is haunted if you ask the students.

it's Jamaican patois, a dialect of English with odd looking spelling and nonstandard grammar and a very distinct sounding accent.

Look for YouTube footage of Bob Marley or Yohan Blake being interviewed to get an idea of what it sounds like when spoken.

I thought people in Jamaica would be more educated than that, voodoo and all; but these seem dumber than most I guess. Very disappointing reporting if there was any ghost story in that.
