Students involved in school fight appear in court

Three students charged in connection with last Wednesday’s beating of a Lester Vaughan Secondary schoolgirl appeared before Magistrate Ian Weekes in the District “D” Magistrates Court around noon today.
Two of them pleaded guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
One of them, a 16-year-old girl, was remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison at Dodds. The 14-year-old boy who admitted to the offence was remanded to the Government Industrial School.
They will return to court on Monday for sentencing.
The third accused, a 15-year-old girl, was granted bail after pleading not guilty to the charge.

    What the heck! These school men and women almost killed that child and the judge really gave one bail. So I guess you can go beat up on ppl like that, plead not guilty and get bail. I’m happy with the out come of the other 2, but where are the others?

      Yes when you plead not guilty you mostly get bail. Up to the prosecutor now to prove the case against her.

      I read the girl has gone Dodds and the boy to the government industrial school but in my opinion ALL involved need charging and being sentenced straight to Dodds ‼️‼️‼️

    in all this I really hope its a real big eye opener for parents to guide and talk to their children every single day before they leave home and the children in return pay attention and see what happened and for the principals of the school to show this all time at prayers spread it talk about it remind them all the time and all we can do is hope lessons are learnt, and that the system is not for just today

    What about the other children not directly involved? can they not be charged for inciting, affray, causing a disturbance? if they believe that what was done was right, when will they do it? Research and find out what can and should be done with these persons who are cheering.

    The collateral damage is that the accused and guilty have exposed themselves to a world wide public network with deviant behavior if not criminal and subsequently that’s an internationally observed record. Now I hope that all students within the Barbados education system truly understand what damage can be done to their character by as simple a thing as shooting a scene on face book. You would have done better by making a local video kids.

    All involved should be punished to send a strong message this kind of behavior will not be tolerated. What’s really going on I’ve seen videos of high school kids fighting in Jamaica,all parts of America,the Bahamas, Barbados this is an epidemic what’s causing this. In my day kids were verbally abusive and that took a toll on myself worth but now they’re not just verbally abusive but physically abusive its just too much, and they love standing around filming and watching these fights.

    The damage is already done….I see no sense of incarcerating them, to me…punishment meted out should be community service around the school…3 hours after school, and 8 hours on weekends for 6 months….the 16 yr old girl has now been exposed to all sorts of avenues….the 14 yr old boy…same result….incarceration isn’t always the answer….what about what the victim did to cause the fight in the first place

    While not an advocate for corporal punishment, we have literally spared the rod and spoiled the child. Children scarred for life due to imprisonment especially for a first offence. How is this going to help? Is this going to scare others when the powers that be are restricting parents from ways and means of disciplining children these days. While I believe some parents should bear some of the blame I think that it is a systemic problem where children are mimicking what they see in the wider society. Our children need counselling and guidance not a jail full of offenders.

    And to think that ‘ significant others in education,’ are fantasising about the supposed benefits and positive usefulness of children in Barbados schools bringing cell phones into schools.

    Cyber bullying elsewhere, has led to the untimely deaths of otherwise bright young people.

    Why wouldn’t they ever learn – from the experiences of others and/or by objective reasoning?
