Singapore on an expulsion roll

Posted on 17 February 2012

This time, JC boy expelled after daring two other boys to kiss openly in school.

Even the two kitty cats in MOE's insignia are kept apart by an open book. What more JC boys?

Reeling from Yaw Shin Leong’s expulsion from the Workers’ Party, Singaporeans are treated to another dismissal spectacle.

On Feb. 8, two junior college boys kissed each other on the lips as a dare by a fellow schoolmate.

This third boy, who was subsequently dismissed, had promised to shave his head bald if the two boys took up his challenge.

The duo, acting in the spirit of fun and laughter (which are qualities sorely lacking in Singapore’s society), lived up to the dare and the kiss took place in the college canteen and was witnessed by other students.

The act was reportedly filmed on the mobile phone while several others took pictures.

Within two days, in a display of great efficiency, the boy who issued the dare was expelled after the incident was made known to the school authorities.

The Ministry of Education has since come up with a defence: A spokesman said that expulsion is only done as a last resort.

The expelled boy had accumulated a series of offences to his name: Persistent late-coming, poor learning attitude, defiance and repeated non-compliance of school rules.

The other two boys who touched lips were given suspensions.

This latest incident of exchanging bodily fluids and subsequent dismissal is part of a trending topic in Singapore this past week.
