THERE is no place for students involved in criminal activities in primary schools in Morobe, according to a provincial education official.
Naikuli Keith Tangui, the senior inspector of primary schools in Morobe, was reacting to a report of the attempted rape of a female teacher by a student in one of Lae’s primary schools.
The incident is the latest in a number of cases involving primary and high school students in Morobe, who were involved in school fights and attacking teachers.
The female teacher was approached by the Grade Seven male student who was under the influence of alcohol.
The headteacher said the student approached the teacher in her office between 3pm and 4pm when other students had gone home.
“He walked into her office and got behind her and said he wanted to talk to her,” the head teacher said.
He said the boy told the female teacher he wanted to have sex with her.
He said the teacher grabbed the boy and beat him up while calling for help.
A male colleague nearby came to her aid.
He said the student was later released because he said he was injured in an earlier incident at the Banana Block.
“This boy lives next to the school premises,” the teacher said.
“He is someone who has a bad behaviour record with the school. He goes around stirring up trouble in the school.
“He is a sort of a peer leader in the school.”
Female teachers at the school have raised their concern about their safety at the school.
