Yesterday, after taking an exam in the afternoon, three female students from Tuen Mun got together on the rooftop garden of Lung Mun Kui to collectively smoke "Little K", during which one 16-years-old girl suddenly exclaimed she had a headache that felt like an explosion before collapsing. As a result, her peers abandoned her, but luckily a security guard found her and called the police. The girl was sent to a hospital and arrested on arrival at hospital. This is the third case within two weeks of students smoking Little K which led to some Members of the Legislative Council birated the Government's ability of drugs prevention campaign that led to a comprehensive fall-out drug abuse in school.

 

Vietnamese female student taking drugs had last name Fan (16 years old), family called her Ah Fong. She was born in Hong Kong, and lived with her family in Shek Pai Tau Road's Chui Lam Garden. She was the second child of four children, and studied as a 7th grader in Ju Ching Chu Secondary School in Tuen Mun. Her older sister was also a graduate in the same school.

 

On the day she took drugs, a female witness, Mrs. Cheung observed Ah Fong grabbing her head on the floor, screaming constantly, "Head hurts... ..." while vomitted appearing very painful. Her female peers seeing her in pain got panic calling their male friends to come see them, after which a security guard patrolling the site found Ah Fong lying on the ground with four men and women looking overwhelmingly anxious. The security guard knew something was wrong so he informed the Management Office. And as soon as the group of 4 hearrd the police approaching, most immediately ran away, but one man could not bear to abandon Ah Fong and he remained at the scene. Police and the ambulance crew rushed to the scene to Ah Fong had slipped into a coma, and they put a oxygen mask on her. Ah Fong was accompanied by her male friend, admitted to Tuen Mun Hospital for treatment. Ah Fong is still in hospital currently. Police initially believed the victim got sick due to taking drugs and subsequently arrested her for on charges of taking drugs while school and parents were notified. The case was referred to the Police New Territories North Regional Special Duty Squad for investigation.

 

Vice-Chancellor Tong Chi Kueng confirmed receiving police notice, and said Fan was a 7th grader in the school. Her conduct performance was average, and had never heard of her drug habit. The school most concerned about Fan's health and had handed over information to the police. He also said that school teachers often were sent to adjacent park and entertainment businesses for inspection in order to see if students had engaged in any illegal activities. At the same time, the school held workshops on drug abuse.

 

According to a man claiming to be Fan's uncle, Fan's father worked in a construction site, and Fan's mother was a housewife. When He heard Fan allegedly took Little K, he was shock because Fan was a good girl who did not go out at night, so he did not believe she would abuse drug.

Because a scandal of a group of students abusing drugs, Ju Ching Chu Secondary School in Tuen Mun held a press conference yesterday to account the whole incident, and read out the written confession of a female student involved in drug abuse. In the letter, the female student, Fan, admitted taking drugs for fun, and she understood now she could not use drugs to solve problem even she were unhappy. After the incident, her mother's tears was the thing that she could not forget for the rest of her life. Principal Hong Chi-Kueng said that the school will not immediately expel the female student involved, because "we do not avoid, it is necessary to come forward to teach the students."

 

The school revealed that the drug abuse scandal began when a 9th grader, who after obtaining drugs from a public housing friend, distributed the drugs to a 9th grader female student and two 7th grader female students after the examination in Lung Mun Kui parking platform. Due to having a physical reaction to the drugs, one fainted and was arrested which exposed the incident. At the conference, disciplinary teacher read out the confession letter of the female student involved. In her letter, she expressed she was "shocked and perplexed" by the incident. She said she was just having fun, and didn't know the situation would spiral down. When she was high, images of taking the examination and memories of unhappy childhood appeared in her mind. Fan thought she was dreaming until she regained consciousness in the hospital. She wrote, "I will never forget the face of my mom's crying in front of me. I am fortunate that I didn't die from this incident.", she said she learned a lesson from this, that she could not use drugs to solve problem even if she was unhappy, and she also should not hurt herself.

 

Principal Hong Chi-Kueng said that he was most concerned of Fan's health, and he would temporarily not take disciplinary action against those drug abused students. In addition, the school had sent representative to visit Fan at the hospital, at present, Fan was stable. Due to school's spring period ending, the school planned to call each parent next week to find out students' activities in the summer, as well as conveying anti-drug messages to parents. The school originally scheduled a drug prevention workshop to be held next week for students, but will move up the schedule to yesterday due to recent scandal because Principal Hong believed shaping students behaviors would be determined by how they responded in the 72 hours after the event. To him, this is not a isolated school matter, but a matter to the whole community.

 

In addition, Ju Ching Chu Secondary School supported to drug testing in school, because schools had responsibility to participate. Hong Kong Federation of Education Chairman, Wong Kwan-yu supported for mandatory drug testing in schools and expressed that the plan will have a deterrent effect. However, Tso Kai-lok, Executive of the Education Council Committee said that there was a need of community consensus for mandatory drug testing due to privacy issues. He suggested the Government to strengthen the pursuit of the drug sources and the disciplinary action.
