(Trinidad Guardian) A school bully attacked an eight-year-old boy at a school in Central Trinidad on Tuesday, breaking his arm and causing injuries to his head.
The Standard Two pupil of a denominational school in Carapichaima told police it was not the first time he had been attacked by the same pupil, who often beats up students if they don’t hand over their snacks.
In an interview yesterday, the boy’s father, Yousuf Hosein, said he will be taking legal action against the school authorities and the Education Ministry if nothing is done to alleviate the incidents of bullying at the school.
Recalling the incident, Hosein said his son was playing during the lunch break on Tuesday when the bully began beating him up.
The bully, who was supposed to be on lunch time supervision, slammed the boy on the ground. A senior school official later contacted Hosein to tell him his son was attacked and had an injury to his arm.
