An elder sister of a boy attacked and robbed in the toilets at school said that the school would not report the incident to “avoid loss of face”.

A picture of her brother in PE kit covered in blood was posted on the Facebook page of Nuchanart Ketphet.

The sister said that the school, in Nakorn Pathom, had told the boy’s parents not to report the matter, reports Kapook.

She said that following the incident – in which her brother was robbed of money and a phone – the school quickly got the maids to clean up the blood evidence.

Only when the parents heard from a concerned teacher their son had been hurt and rushed to the school did they put him in an ambulance and seek proper medical attention for his head injury.

Asked about CCTV the school said that they had it but it wasn’t working. According to the Facebook poster when the parents asked why it wasn’t working a teacher said: “I don’t know, go and ask the camera”.

“How can a teacher speak like that?” she asked. “They are just covering everything up to avoid losing face. But they should be protecting students when at school not just giving them an education”.
