At her trial in a Tuen Mun court Wednesday, a teacher denied 15 charges of assaulting her students at a primary school for mentally retarded children. Leung Pui-ki, 48, was seen in a video played in court directing an alcohol-based antiseptic spray at the face of a student, Ming Pao Daily reported Thursday. Leung, who has since resigned, is accused of spraying alcohol-based cleaning solution onto the face of seven children between six and seven years of age in a classroom during the 2013-2014 school year.

 

Leung was employed as a teacher for Primary 1 students in the subjects of communication and adapting to social life. She is seen in the 10-minute video shouting at a student “You look ugly crying!” and “Let me sterilise the moisture in the air” while spraying liquid on the crying student. Her lawyer said Leung was using the spray, which contains 75 percent of alcohol by volume, on the hands of the students and never aimed at the students heads. Leung has reportedly left the special needs school run by the Po Leung Kuk and is now working as a teacher at another school.

 

The parents of one student testified that their son, who is seen in the video being sprayed several times in the face by Leung, has the mental age of a six-month-old. The boy only returned home on weekends and boarded at the school during the week. His parents told the court they noticed rashes and swelling on their son’s cheeks that required ointment containing steroids for treatment. The condition lasted about two months, but the school was unable to offer any explanation to his worried parents. The boy is seen in the video being sprayed four times as he holds his head down while trying to get up and leave his seat. Leung is seen continuing with the spraying for a few seconds.

 

Her lawyer said the rashes and swelling could be symptoms of a genuine skin allergy. He said parents were allowed to observe classes at any time. The parents said appointments needed to be made in advance with the school, and they had a feeling they were not welcome. Hearing of the case continues Thursday.
