Calabar under fire again - Students caught making derogatory chants about KC

By Sports Desk April 02, 2019

Dethroned ISSA Grace/Kennedy Boys and Girls’ champions Calabar have once again found themselves at the centre of the storm after members of the student body were caught making derogatory chants on camera.

In the video making the rounds on social media, a large number of students, seemingly at a general assembly in the school’s auditorium, utter disparaging chants that suggested members of the Kingston College community were a derogatory term used to describe homosexuals.

It was Kingston College that claimed bragging rights in the latest instalment of the rivalry, after ending the seven-year dominance of the Red Hill Road-based institution, last weekend at the boys' championship.  The videos have already been widely condemned.  The school has already quickly apologized for the event, with a delegation of teachers and students expected to head to Kingston College tomorrow as part of a conciliatory outreach effort.

The organization found itself under fire, ahead of the championships, for the handling of disciplining high school track students Christopher Taylor and D’ejour Russell following allegations of assault made by a physics teacher.

  Although the incident happened in December, the teacher had suggested that the students not be allowed to participate in Champs after being allowed to take part in track and field events despite being suspended for five days by the school.
