The Ministry of Education in a statement on Wednesday said it has been informed of several incidents involving students of one of the country’s top secondary schools.
The ministry said that the occurrences are being investigated and treated with the utmost seriousness as it relates to the management of students’ care, well-being, and supervision.
On Tuesday, several videos surfaced on social media depicting students (male and female) of the Christ Church Secondary School performing non-penetrative sexual activities.
The students were clad in their school uniform and it appears as though the videos were taken in a classroom at the Middle and Camp Streets, Georgetown school. The videos were shared thousands of times on Facebook and posted by persons on their WhatsApp status.
Given the sensitivity of the videos and the relatively long term implication it may have for young teenagers who wittingly or unwittingly were engaging in the acts, the Education Ministry wishes to remind members of the citizenry that it is against the law to share material or use a device in a way that may have disparaging effects for someone.
