Classes Suspended at Anchovy High After Girl Fight

Classes at the upper school of the Anchovy High in St James are expected to resume on Wednesday after today's suspension caused by the beating on the dean of discipline by a group of female students.

The school board was forced to suspend classes for 1,200 students in grades nine through to 11, following a series of violent events among female students on the school grounds during their lunch break on Monday.

Last evening, a video of the incident, involving the beating of the dean of discipline went viral on social media hours after the fracas.

According to chairman of the Anchovy High School Board Calvin G Brown, the parents of the girls involved in the fight will on Thursday be informed of the disciplinary actions that will be meted out to them by a special committee that has been set up.

The school board on Tuesday had a marathon meeting with the police, representatives from the Ministry of Education and educators.

Meanwhile head of Operations at the St James Police Division, Superintendent Gary McKenzie condemned the unfortunate incident.

He argued that parents should play a greater role in inculcating discipline in their children.

The lower school is located at another location about a mile away.
