A Hong Kong secondary school has condemned a bullying incident caught on camera, which shows a pupil being beaten with the lid of a fire bucket and pushed to eat the sand in it. Tack Ching Girls’ Secondary School (TCGSS) in Sham Shui Po on Saturday vowed to deal with the matter seriously and said it regretted the incident between students earlier this week.

In a video circulated online, a young, short-haired girl wearing a jacket with the initials TCGSS was left cowering in a stairwell in an attack involving at least two culprits. The girl was repeatedly hit on the head and arms with the lid, and she was ordered in Cantonese to eat the sand in the bucket, the video showed.

A police spokesman confirmed the force received a report from the father of a 13-year-old girl who was injured during an incident at a staircase of Hoi Lai Shopping Centre in Cheung Sha Wan. A preliminary investigation found the girl was suspected to have been attacked with hard objects, and the case was listed as assault occasioning actual bodily harm. The victim sustained injuries to the head and arms and was sent to Caritas Medical Centre in Sham Shui Po for treatment.

TCGSS said in a statement on Saturday: “The school deeply regrets the video circulating online a few days ago about the school’s student being bullied … we are investigating the matter with the related person and will deal with it seriously.” The school said it had always focused on instilling respect among students. “Students grow up in the face of difficulties and challenges. Our team of teachers, as always, provides appropriate training and guidance to allow students to learn how to get along with others, respect others and take responsibility,” the statement added.

Hong Kong has a serious problem with school bullying, surveys have found. One ranking suggested Hong Kong was the worst globally among 53 countries and regions. About a third of 15-year-olds said they were bullied a few times a month. In one high-profile incident last year, eight students, aged 17 to 19, were arrested for common assault after a video emerged of a pupil being stripped and assaulted by classmates.
