Vietnam’s Ministry of Education and Training has asked the Ho Chi Minh City administration to direct competent authorities to deal with a violence case among students at a local international school.

The incident took place at International School Ho Chi Minh City - American Academy (ISHCMC-AA), the education ministry said in a document sent to the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee on Saturday.

It asked the municipal administration to direct competent authorities to verify and handle the case in accordance with regulations in order to ensure safety for the students.

Reports on the case should be sent to the education ministry prior to May 31, the document wrote.

Information about the violence among students at ISHCMC-AA has been shared widely on social media over the past days.

T.H.T., whose daughter studies seventh grade at ISHCMC-AA, said that students at the school joined a trip to southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province last week.

During a meal, T.’s daughter was keeping the chair for her friend when a girl, who studies eighth grade, wanted to use the chair.

As T.’s daughter said that the seat was taken, the eighth grader responded in an aggressive manner.

On May 26, T.’s daughter was attacked at school, while her three friends were also wounded as they tried to intervene.

A teaching assistant saw the incident but did not try to stop it or report to the school's management board timely, T. stated.

Following the attack, the four girls suffered multiple scratches and bruises on their bodies and are still psychologically traumatized, the woman added.

T. has arrived at the school and demanded that the school leaders deal with the case.
