Education authorities are investigating an incident which took place last week, which saw an assault on a student and three teachers at Naxxar Middle School.
Sources claim that a troublesome 12-year-old assaulted a fellow student during break time. The assailant then directed his violent behaviour towards three teachers who tried to break up the abuse.
One teacher had her spectacles broken during the assault while the other two teachers were slightly injured. An education ministry spokesperson said that the incident took place on Thursday of last week.
In line with standard procedure, he said, the school leadership team took immediate action. The police were not involved, but college administration, child protection services and the college’s psychosocial team are attending to the case.
This is the same school wherein a girl was caught on video being bullied by other students outside the school. More information as the story develops.
