Officials at the Clendon Mason Memorial Secondary School in Dennery are investigating an alleged fight shortly after lunchtime between several students and a female teacher.
A well-placed source at the school told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that three male students from Form 5 were suspected of being involved in the fight with a teacher who teaches French, around 1 p.m.
It is alleged that the teacher received minor bruises during the attack. It is further alleged that an emergency meeting between teachers and the principal was being organised to address the issue.
The cause of the altercation is not yet clear.
When SNO contacted the school, an official said the incident is currently under investigation, but he declined to give any further information including his name.
