He suffered a serious injury to his face.

Chairman of the school’s board of governors, Calvin Brown, says during a meeting at the school yesterday the specific incident and other recent acts of indiscipline were discussed and various decisions taken.

The meeting was attended by members of the school’s board of management, the Ministry of Education, the police and the academic staff.

Brown says the incident will be properly investigated and a report submitted to the personnel committee of the board, who will examine the various reports and take the necessary action.
