WATCH: Wolmer's sixth-formers condemn students' abuse of principal

Sixth formers at the Wolmer's Boys' School in Kingston apologise over the verbal abuse directed at the principal of Wolmer's Girls' School by a group of lower school students.

Sixth formers at the Wolmer's Boys' School in Kingston apologise over the verbal abuse directed at the principal of Wolmer's Girls' School by a group of lower school students.

Sixth-formers at the Wolmer's Boys' School in Kingston have condemned the sordid actions of their second form peers after the lower school students were caught on video verbally abusing the principal of the neighbouring Wolmer's Girls' School.

The senior students recorded a video blasting misogyny and the verbal and physical abuse of women, and have spoken up about the role males should play in protecting the fairer sex.

The video comes days after the release on social media of a recording of a group of second form students of the 290-year-old school hurling sexual innuendos and insults at the headmistress of the Wolmer's Girls' School, Colleen Montague. The release of the footage has drawn howls of criticism from Wolmer's alumni and the wider society.

The incident is the latest in a string of reports and allegations against Wolmer's Boys students that have reached the Loop News desk including threats of physical and sexual violence against female teachers and rank indiscipline being perpetrated by some rogue students, some of whom represent the school in various sporting disciplines.

It also once again raises the issue of pervasive indiscipline across schools nationwide, with a growing number of reports of students attacking teachers.
