The Ministry of Education and Higher Education, out of its responsibility to maintain the health and safety of all students, confirmed that it has taken all measures to investigate the incident of a private school teacher handing pills to four students. The administration of the concerned private school dismissed the teacher and terminated her services, in conformity with the regulations preventing any teacher from distributing medicines to students except for the school nurse and after referring to the parents.
In a press release, the Ministry stated that the investigation had included all parties concerned with this unfortunate and isolated incident; the teacher, the school administration and a random sample of students, as well as the students who took the pills. They all confirmed that the incident is the first and had never happened before. Information was shared with the competent authorities at the Ministry of Interior that joined the investigation and the follow-up of the laboratory examination of the pills. The results showed that the pills are free from narcotics and prohibited substances.
The Ministry indicated that, following strict instructions to enforce all regulations to ensure the safety of students, the act of the teacher was individual, stressing that it would never tolerate such behaviour. The Ministry reassured parents and all stakeholders in education on the sound health and safety of the school environment.
The Ministry of Education and Higher Education hereby calls on everyone to establish direct communication with the Ministry to verify the authenticity of the remarks made by the public and to launch the appropriate investigations.
The Ministry welcomes all comments and inquiries via the Ministry's website and social media platforms, or by calling the hotline 155.
