|ACJC responds to 'birthday hazing' incident|
|ANGLO-Chinese Junior College (ACJC) has responded to an incident where a girl was tied up and humiliated on her birthday. The girl was tied to a chin-up bar by her wrists while friends pelted her with milk and cake.|
Principal Mrs Kelvyna Chan emailed STOMP with this reply:
"I refer to an article put up by a STOMPER regarding a birthday celebration of an ACJC student.
"The College is aware of the incident which was a birthday celebration of a student who was popular with her peers. We understand that the student was prepared for the celebration, and that there was no malice nor bullying involved.
"When a teacher saw the celebration, he immediately stopped it and counselled the students. The birthday girl also assured the teacher that she was not hurt physically nor emotionally. Some weeks after the event, a teacher again enquired about the girl's wellbeing, and she assured the teacher and the College that the celebrations were all done in good fun and she was well.
"Although the activity was done in good humour, the college has counseled the students involved on the possible hazards of such activities and that there are more appropriate ways to show friendship among their peers.
"The STOMPER had erroneously interpreted the video as a case of bullying when in fact it was a birthday celebration between good friends as seen by the laughter shared by the birthday girl and her friends."

I knew I would get a chance to add to this before any other JC. Clearly the uniforms are those of ACJC. The tell tale collars.
