These are tumultuous times.
And they do not seem to be getting any better.
Fresh off news that the pandemic is back in all its vileness, it was just reported that there has been a potential case of murder revolving around a…
Student in River Valley High School (RVHS).
River Valley Case
According to various reports, there has been a case of assault in RVHS.
The Straits Times reported that the victim, a student, was allegedly killed in the incident.
Apparently, someone had allegedly wielded an axe in the school between 11 am and 12 pm.
A video of students sprinting was also taken in school.
At around 1:00 p.m., a crime scene investigation van, an ambulance and at least four police vehicles could be seen at the school compound.
Students were also told to stay in their classrooms, and were not let out for their lunch break (which was supposed to take place at 1:00 p.m.)
It should be noted that the back gate was reportedly closed off. Students who needed to go, however, were permitted to after 2:00 p.m.
The rest were situated at the school hall, and were attended to by school staff members.
Investigations are currently ongoing.
According to sources, RVHS entails a six-year Integrated Programme which allows students to hop their O Levels and instead head straight to the A levels in their sixth year.
As such, the school has students aged from 12 to 18.
