Ministry probes lewd videos at Christ Church Secondary School
The Ministry of Education says it is investigating a number of videos involving students at one of the “top secondary schools” in Georgetown.
A brief statement issued by the ministry on Wednesday did not name the school but noted that the incidents are “being investigated and treated with the utmost seriousness as it relates to the management of students’ care, well-being and supervision.”
The videos, which were leaked on social media on Tuesday, went viral; it depicts some students engaging in several non-penetrative sexual acts (commonly known as ‘dry humping’). They were all clad in their school uniform and the videos were filmed in a classroom at the Christ Church Secondary School at Camp and Middle Streets, Georgetown.
The videos were shared thousands of times by many adults on social media.
As such, the ministry said, “given the sensitivity of these issues relative to the long term implication it may have for young teenagers who wittingly or unwittingly were engaging in acts, the 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.”
