Savanna-La-Mar Primary School still trying to cope following death of teacher in St Elizabeth crash

Four days after the tragic passing of 31-year-old educator Danielle Blake, those affiliated with the Savanna-La-Mar Primary School in Westmoreland are still trying to cope with the loss.

Blake is one of two people killed in a motor vehicle collision along the Font Hill main road in St Elizabeth, last Friday.

She was on her way to work.

A United States citizen, Caleb Ampiah-Davis is charged with causing death by dangerous driving and was granted $300,000 bail in court yesterday.

Speaking with IRIE FM news, School Principal Megan Berry-Scott says Ms. Blake was the ultimate professional who made an indelible mark, despite only working with the school for less than a month.

Mrs. Berry-Scott notes that it is unfortunate that students were robbed of an educator whose employment showed great promise for the institution.

She says counselling support is being provided to students and staff.

The school principal also notes that her staff has been been assisting each other through the tragedy.
