It appears that things have returned to normal and classes have resumed at the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College one day after students abandoned regular activities to participate in a protest on the premises of the tertiary level institution.
The protest was staged to demonstrate students dissatisfaction with several issues confronting the school including inadequate searing in several classes among others.
The increase in tuition fees also played a major role in the decision to protest according to some students.
But an update on the situation provided by a spokesperson for students attending the Division of Arts Science and General Studies Daniella Henry Philip informed that an audience with school principal Urban Dolor on Monday has served to temporarily quell the situation.
But she stressed that if the promises to address some of the students demands in the comings weeks is not met, there will be a full blown boycott of classes.
School officials have promised to address the seating situation within the next few weeks, however there was no movement on the tuition fees issue
