Students caught recording video of teachers in toilet
A 51-year-old teacher has lodged a police report and the two 14-year-old culprits suspended immediately.
MALACCA: For over a month, two Form Two students of a top school here were secretly recording videos of female teachers using the toilet.
To record the teachers, the boys would climb up to the ceiling of the boys’ toilet before crawling over to the teachers’ washroom and lie in wait there for hours.
However the duo ran out of luck on April 27 when a teacher screamed after hearing noises coming from the ceiling, prompting others to run to her aid.
The boys in the meantime were suspended from school the same day and their parents informed.

Peeping Toms target teachers
MALACCA: Two 14-year-old boys climbed up to the ceiling of a top school here and waited there for hours to record videos of female teachers using the toilet.
It is believed that the boys, who are in Form Two, took close to a dozen pictures and videos of the teachers.
The boys climbed up to the ceiling of their own toilet before making their way to the space above the women’s room to film the teachers through a gap during school hours.
However, they were caught red-handed on April 27 after a teacher heard noises from the ceiling and shouted, prompting others to run to her aid.
Questioned by the disciplinary teacher and four other staff members, the boys admitted that they had been carrying out their activities since the beginning of last month.
The duo have been suspended from the school and their parents were informed of the disciplinary action the same day.
