Mum’s appeal for safe schooling


Share post:

THE MOTHER of an 11-year-old Ellerslie Secondary School student who was beaten by a group of seven female students wants measures put in place at the school to ensure the safety of children.

Aisha Harding believes that had her previous efforts to speak to the school’s principal been successful, her daughter, Khalyiah, might not have sustained the injuries she did.

Last Thursday evening Khalyiah was reportedly at the bus stop on Black Rock Main Road, St Michael, when the group of girls surrounded her and started to beat her.

She was followed by the group to a nearby shop where she sought refuge, but the proprietor told them all to leave the premises, after which the beating continued. (LK)
