Minister of Education Anthony Garcia has condemned the behaviour displayed by students, in videos that have now become viral, engaging in acts of extortion and assault at the Siparia West Secondary School.

Minister Garcia has deemed the incidents as 'criminal' and has engaged the Minister of National Security to ensure that the perpetrators of these crimes feel the full brunt of the law. 

The Minister was also concerned with the lack of supervision on the school's compound. He reiterated that a part of the job of a principal or a teacher is the supervision of students, this he said is critical as scenarios such as the ones seen in the videos circulated on social media should never be given the opportunity to occur.  

The Minister of National Security has indicated that officers from the Police Service will be on site at the school on Monday to lay charges on the students involved in the altercations. 

Minister Garcia cautioned students that the Ministry has a zero tolerance policy on indiscipline and any student found to be engaging in disruptive behaviour will be swiftly dealt with in accordance with the law.
