School expresses ‘regret’ at alleged assault says issue ‘resolved’

The alleged assault of a Bermuda Institute student by a member of staff has been “resolved”, according to the Bermuda Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.

The police Vulnerable Persons Unit had been looking into the matter, which was said to involve corporal punishment and a 13-year-old female student back in October at the Southampton school.

However, according to Associate Communications Director for the Conference Randolph Wilson, the “incident involving the principal of the Bermuda Institute of Seventh-day Adventists and a student” has been put to rest.

“We wish to express our regret at the circumstances the student and family have endured,” Mr Wilson said.

“We would like to thank the parents and the student involved for their continuing support of Christian education at our school.”

The Conference continues to back the school principal, who “remains committed to the highest standards of Christian education”, the statement added.

“As we embrace the mandate of our school and Christian education in general, we remain dedicated to policies and practices that foster the harmonious development of both student and staff alike.”
