Student attacked by students

A Grade 11 student in Dagupan City, Pangasinan, was attacked by a group of Grade 7 and Grade 8 students outside school premises after classes. The incident, which was captured on closed-circuit television (CCTV), has raised concerns about student safety and bullying. Here are some details according to the report of GMA Regional TV News.

CCTV Footage Reveals the Assault

Footage from a CCTV camera shows the Grade 11 student being approached and beaten by a group of younger male students on Burgos Street, near Dagupan City National High School. The attackers reportedly targeted the victim on his way home.

Annabelle Paris, the mother of the victim, stated that her son did not know the attackers, who were from the same school. “Mga lima ‘yung nakikita sa CCTV. Sabi ng anak ko, hindi raw niya kakilala ang mga ‘yun. Grade Seven and Eight [yung nag-atake sakanya], samantalang ang anak ko, Grade 11,” she said.

The victim sustained injuries to his face and back, but has since returned to school. His mother hopes that similar incidents will not happen again.

School Administration’s Response

The Dagupan City National High School administration has started investigating the incident. Although the school declined to give a recorded interview, it assured that it is addressing the matter and has begun gathering statements from the students involved. The school has also communicated with the parent of the victim and scheduled further discussions.

The Department of Education (DepEd) – Region 1 said it will give particular attention to bullying in schools to ensure the safety of students and prevent future incidents like this. The DepEd aims to collaborate with school administrations and parents to address concerns about student safety. They also plan to tackle issues of bullying within educational institutions.
