Col­lège Servite teacher sus­pended for in­ap­pro­pri­ate be­hav­iour

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Last Fri­day, ad­min­is­tra­tors of the Col­lège Servite an­nounced to its per­son­nel, stu­dents and their par­ents that one of their teach­ers had been ar­rested fol­low­ing in­ap­pro­pri­ate re­la­tions with a mi­nor stu­dent from a dif­fer­ent school. At the Col­lege, there has been no sign or be­hav­iour to in­di­cate that a sim­i­lar in­ci­dent could have hap­pened there.

Al­though the in­ci­dent occurred out­side of the school com­mu­nity and the Sher­brooke po­lice has stated that no stu­dent of the Col­lège Servite was in­volved, the ad­min­is­tra­tion of the Col­lege takes the sit­u­a­tion very se­ri­ously. The teacher was sus­pended im­me­di­ately.

The gen­eral di­rec­tor of the Col­lège Servite, François Leblanc, con­sid­ers it a pri­or­ity the work of pro­tect­ing and re­as­sur­ing the stu­dents. To this end, sev­eral re­sources have been put in place to re­spond to the stu­dents’ needs, such as two so­cial work­ers, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with CAVAC (cen­tre d’aide aux vic­times d’actes crim­inels).
