Bullied boy moves
THE 11-YEAR-old who was the victim of bullying at a school in the north has been transferred to another school and is “much happier”.
The boy’s mother told the DAILY NATION yesterday that when she went to the Ministry of Education she spoke to Chief Education Officer Laurie King, whom she praised for treating her case with “a lot of respect”.
“He was very concerned about what happened to my son. After listening to me carefully he told me that he was going to send him to a school in the St Michael area. He also offered to send him to counselling,” said the mother.
The mother said she was still going to take legal action “because I need justice”.
She had told the SATURDAY SUN of September 17 that the bullying incident had left her son traumatised.
The boy, who was born with a heart condition, received a cut to his chin and was afraid to return to the school where two boys attacked him. (AH)
