Alleged bullying of Mercy Johnson’s child at Chrisland School: Management promises to investigate
Following the allegations of bullying levelled against a staff of Chrisland School in Lagos by Nollywood star, Mercy Johnson Okogie, last week and the social media accusations and counter-accusations that trailed the issue, the school management through its Advisory Board, has allayed the fears of the public that the issues will be swept under the carpet.
According to the Advisory Board, safeguarding the rights, dignity, creative capacity and sense of esteem of every child under their care, remains irrevocably entrenched.
The Advisory Board of the school, speaking through one of its members, Akin Fadeyi on Sunday, stated that the board was not informed of the development which led to the social media drama where it learnt about the matter in public like every other person, but will investigate the issue critically and inform the public of what exactly transpired.
“We are not unaware of the development at one of our schools which led to a social media incidence involving one of our pupils’ parents. In order not to jump in the fray or rush to the media with half-truths which may be unjust to all concerned, we are working on every available information at our disposal to investigate what actually took place to enable us establish the veracity of each claim and true state of things.
“This, we have swiftly embarked upon by deploying our well-tested processes to engage with each and everyone concerned, both within our internal and connected relationships.
“In the meantime, safeguarding the rights, dignity, creative capacity and sense of esteem of every child under our care remain irrevocably entrenched at the core of our corporate ethos, even as we always keep our doors open to embrace constructive feedback from concerned public and especially our stakeholders.
“We will communicate further with you once we’ve been able to ascertain the true position of things. Permit us to express our profound gratitude to you, for not just taking interest in this matter but for also seeking to establish balanced perspectives,” the Advisory board of Chrisland School said.
