(PRESS RELEASE VIA SNO) – The Sir Arthur Lewis Community College has adopted a zero tolerance stance on the circulating video.
A communique has been circulated amongst the student body that indicates the proposed event is not sanctioned by the school.
According to the communique:
“It has been brought to our attention that an activity, the Tsunami Lawn Fete, is being planned that involves students from the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College.
Please note that the Saint Lucia National Trust has written to the College asking that we inform students that no activity will be allowed on the properties under the care of the Trust, in particular Prevost Park. The relevant authorities will be put on alert to ensure that this is enforced.
The Management of the College wishes to inform that NO association to the College must be made when planning such events that are not sanctioned. We are very concerned about the content of the advertisement for the Tsunami Lawn Fete which is currently circulating. The representation of this activity is pregnant with portrayals of risky and dangerous behavior that may even be illegal. The College therefore places on record its disassociation with any such activity and cautions students to conduct themselves responsibly at this pivotal time in their lives.
Students in any breach of the Students’ Rules and Regulations that constitute misconduct will be liable to disciplinary action.”
A school official speaking on the issue lamented that most of the unhealthy behaviors displayed by young people stems from a wider societal degeneration that is a mirror image of what young people do. Said the college official:
“We are currently developing a campaign that targets “Responsible behavior” looking at responsible driving, sexual behavior and social behavior such as aggression, bullying and drug consumption”
The SALCC welcomes the support of parents, guardians and the wider society in ensuring that young people make sound and responsible decisions at all times.
