Saint Johnís Juniour College today announced that it is making 1.54 million dollars worth of Jesuit scholarships available to its 2013 Juniour College graduates. This yearís awardees are Natasha Khawani, Dionne Habet, Edgar Nah, Aaron Stock, Shan Shan Tam, Gian Hernandez, Aldair Gongora, Yael Perrera and Kiíila Salas.
In other, less happy news from the school, today, 7News received several calls from concerned parents in relation to a developing situation at Saint Johnís College high school.

It centers around a 3rd form class which is facing the threat of mass suspension and academic failure because of a stolen cellular phone belonging to one of the female teachers.

The class is suspected to have information which could lead to the discovery of the culprit, but they have been uncooperative with the administration.

As a result, the Prinicipal of the School is determined to get to the bottom of the situation, and it is causing the parents to worry that her disciplinary action is too drastic.

We attempted to speak with the principal today, who declined comment.

SJC Suspension, A Slight Reprieve

Last night, we told you about the situation which was brewing at Saint Johnís College, well it seems that a compromise has been struck.

As we told you, the 3rd form class, 3D, was suspended en masse and faced the threat of academic failure because of a stolen cellular phone belonging to one of the female teachers.

The entire class was suspected of having information that could lead the administration to discover the culprit. The problem is that the students all denied that they had any such information, and the principal was determined to get to the bottom of the situation.

They were suspended and parents called us in an uproar to complain that her disciplinary action is too extreme. That forced a meeting today between the parents, the 3d students in their casual clothes and the administration, and they came to a resolution.

The students from 3D must participate in mandatory community service this weekend, and if they donít do so, they will be expelled. They return on Monday, a few days before their final exams, and it is uncertain how this loss of time in the class will affect their preparedness.

It is still not known how the cellular phone was stolen, and by who, but apparently, the culprits made mass prank calls with it.
