Two boys in uniforms suddenly went rogue in a toilet of a prestigious Catholic school in Singapore and started kicking and punching each other while their peers cheered and recorded the scene.
At the video approached the end, the Catholic High School (CHS) pupils were seen in a near-stranglehold as they used extreme force to knock each other down.
A video that caught the scene of the undated incident was uploaded on Feb. 24 by Complaint Singapore, a civil society group that monitors irregularities and indiscipline in the city-state, and it went viral on social media sites, garnering thousands of views.
While many found the incident funny and made jokes out of it, others were strongly critical and demanded strict discipline in the hitherto famous education sector of Singapore.
….as we enter the last months of 2021, we are asking readers like you to help us keep UCA News free.
For the last 40 years, UCA News has remained the most trusted and independent Catholic news and information service from Asia. Every week, we publish nearly 100 news reports, feature stories, commentaries, podcasts and video broadcasts that are exclusive and in-depth, and developed from a view of the world and the Church through informed Catholic eyes.
Our journalistic standards are as high as any in the quality press; our focus is particularly on a fast-growing part of the world - Asia - where, in some countries the Church is growing faster than pastoral resources can respond to – South Korea, Vietnam and India to name just three.
And UCA News has the advantage of having in its ranks local reporters who cover 23 countries in south, southeast, and east Asia. We report the stories of local people and their experiences in a way that Western news outlets simply don’t have the resources to reach. And we report on the emerging life of new Churches in old lands where being a Catholic can at times be very dangerous.
With dwindling support from funding partners in Europe and the USA, we need to call on the support of those who benefit from our work.
