Return to school, students told


A campaign urging students to go to school and to erase the fear of their parents over the incident of collapsing schoolmates Tuesday is being pushed at the Fr. Gratian Murray Integrated School in Barangay Granada, Bacolod City.

Until yesterday, only a few students came to the schoolwhere at least 10 female students collapsed Tuesday, while others were shouting.

Bacolod Schools Division Superintendent Cynthia Demavivas said Wednesday that the teaching force of Fr. Gratian Murray Integrated School should campaign to erase the fear of the students and their parentsso they will bring their children to school again.

Demavivas also ordered the school to conduct classes no matter how few the students are, so the public will understand that they mean business.

Students who went to the school yesterday, said in interviews with ABS-CBN Bacolod, that they are not afraid because there is no truth in the incident.

Demavivas recalled a similar incident she had witnessed in a San Carlos school, but things eventually returned to normal when the first student to collapse, and started the “mass hysteria,” was found out to be “problematic”.

The Bacolod City Health Office is still doing an assessment on the affected students.*
