Ten female students of a leading school in the Southern Province, who had consumed beer and behaved badly inside the classroom, had been suspended, the School Disciplinary Unit of the Southern Province Eduction Department said.

The incident had taken place on World Children's Day.

The principal of the school had made every effort to cover up the incident, but the whole sordid episode became public knowledge after a complaint was made by the parents and teachers to the School Disciplinary Unit (SDU) of the Provincial Education Department, which launched an investigation and found the students guilty.

They had been given a one week suspension from school by the SDU.

On October 1, the students had brought 13 beer cans into the Grade 11 classroom and had consumed them.

Unfortunately for the students a glass filled with beer that was in the hand of one of the girls had fallen on the ground and had shattered spilling the liquid all over the floor of the classroom.

A teacher, who came into the classroom,  had noticed the strange behavior of the girls and complained about the matter. (Janak De Silva)

    when government grant tax exemption to one beer producer of the country at the cost of public funds this kind of immoral behaviour is unavoidable.

    This is not the ultimate 'sin' or the worst crime for senior school children. However, they should be guided into maturity carefully both by parents and teachers.In the teens youth generally would like to experiment and do what elders do. They should be guided to judge and choose wisely. Ours is an open society and hence youth should be helped to take a mature path.

    Yes. That's because they are more likely to be strapping a bomb and exploding themselves along with the school and the other school kids. I would rather any day my kids drink some beer than become suicide bombers or walking tents.

    This incident should have covered up with internal inquiryThis incident is a good lesson to the parents how they should behave at home and in a social gathering.

    You are making foolish statement with religion here. There are good and bad people in all religions.

    Why is this news? When school boys drink beer we don't see news articles. Why?

    This is how effective "mathata thitha' has become. Nothing meaningful was done by previous Govt.
