9 MRSM Alor Ga­jah stu­dents ex­pelled

New Straits Times - - News -

KUALA LUMPUR: Nine stu­dents from Mak­tab Ren­dah Sains Mara (MRSM) Alor Ga­jah who were in­volved in the bul­ly­ing case of a 14-year-old stu­dent have been ex­pelled.

The May 6 in­ci­dent was re­ported in the New Straits Times on May 19, which saw the vic­tim’s mother turn­ing to the me­dia after fail­ing to get the board­ing school’s man­age­ment to act on the mat­ter.

Mara deputy di­rec­tor-gen­eral (ed­u­ca­tion) Mo­hamed Roseli Dol said the de­ci­sion to ex­pel the stu­dents was taken after a meet­ing with the Mara Sec­ondary Ed­u­ca­tion Divi­sion Dis­ci­pline Com­mit­tee.

“At the meet­ing, we de­cided that the eight Form Three stu­dents and one Form Four stu­dent would be ex­pelled with im­me­di­ate ef­fect. As soon as the MRSM Alor Ga­jah man­age­ment was no­ti­fied, the war­den and teach­ers vis­ited the area where the in­ci­dent took place to in­ves­ti­gate.”

Roseli said Mara would not tol­er­ate any wrong­do­ing by its stu­dents un­der any cir­cum­stances and would work with re­lated par­ties, in­clud­ing the po­lice, to as­sist in in­ves­ti­ga­tions.
