Chrisland School has detailed why a 10-year-old female student was suspended after she was mistreated and raped by her classmates.
The school further emphasized the action taken to address the problem in a statement dated 14 April 2022 and signed by Chrisland School Head Teacher, Mrs. G.I. Azike, as it firmly claimed that the student’s activity was a ‘truth and dare’ game.
According to the statement, “It was discovered that your daughter was involved in improper behavior during the recently concluded World School Games in Dubai with a few of her counterparts willfully participated in a game they called Truth or Dare’, a game which led her and a few other co-learners to carry out an immoral act after the lights-out instruction was given.
“In line with our core values centered on discipline, Chrisland Schools have zero tolerance for any improper behavior and misconduct. A full-scale investigation has been done and the parents of all the culpable learners have been duly notified of the necessary punishment meted out on the learners.
“However, in the course of the school’s efforts to see how best we can help…who was a major participant in the whole incident, every effort to inform you as her parents about the incident and ensure that this improper behavior is permanently corrected, has proved to be futile.
“We cannot as a school condone such. Consequently, (the student) is hereby placed on an indefinite suspension until you as the parents ensure that she is punished, adequately counseled and rehabilitated.”
This comes after the Chrisland School was slammed on social media for hiding the event of a female student who was sexually assaulted by a group of male classmates.
There may be more stories to come out of this incident.
