Gizo CHS shuts down after students threaten teachers on Facebook



GIZO Community High School in Western province has been forced to shut down after students posted profanity and threats against their teachers on Facebook.

The school teachers have declared the school closed until further notice.

A member of staff on Tuesday told Island Sun, “The school board members and Police are actively investigating this issue with the highest priority.

“Posting an injurious message on the internet against teachers is our number one priority.”

He said there are right procedures to raise complaints against teachers, not in the social media by using bad words.

The teacher said they are now working closely with Police on the issue.

When contacted the Deputy Principal of the Gizo CHS on Tuesday said that he will not comment over the issue until any approval from the school principal.

Meanwhile, some students spoken to have expressed dismay and shock over what has happened and condemn what the students have done on social media.
