SEARCHLIGHT has learned that a fourth form student took the cake to the school’s athletic meet, which was held on February 1, at the Victoria Park.

According to our source, the cake was consumed by three fourth formers.

Reports indicate that one of the three students had to be rushed to the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital after eating the cake. A source told SEARCHLIGHT that the student, up to press time, had not yet returned to school.

SEARCHLIGHT also learned that a meeting was held at the school on Wednesday morning with the student who allegedly brought the cake, his parents and the principal.

When contacted on Wednesday afternoon, principal of the school Ceceila King declined to comment on the matter.

In 2009, laboratory tests revealed that cannabis was present in a cake served at the graduation ball of the Division of Arts, Sciences and Humanities of the St Vincent and the Grenadines Community College.

Two female students who attended that ball ended up at the Accident and Emergency Department of the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital after eating the cake.
