Chrisland School has suspended a 10-year-old female pupil for participating in a truth-or-dare game in Dubai.
Pupils from the elite high school were in Dubai in March to participate in the World School Games between March 10-13, 2022.
The school was celebrated for carrying out an impressive display and winning about 34 medals.
In a letter to the girl’s parents, dated April 14, 2022, authorities at Chrisland School in Victoria Island Garden City told the girl’s father that she took part in “improper behaviour” after playing the truth-or-dare game, describing her as a “major participant.”
“In line with our core values centred on discipline, Chrisland Schools have zero tolerance for any improper behaviour and misconduct,” the school said in a letter signed by its Principal, Georgia Azike.
While the pupil’s name is withheld, the school said other schoolmates who took part in the game had been suspended, adding that the girl and her parents did not cooperate during its investigation.
“Consequently, [name withheld) is hereby placed on indefinite suspension until you as the parents ensure that she is punished, adequately counselled and rehabilitated,” the school said.

The letter was obtained hours after social media claims about the matter emerged. Friends of the father said a pregnancy test had been conducted and the school initially hushed up the case.
A spokesman for Chrisland did not return a request seeking comments about the allegations.
The development came weeks after Sylvester Oromoni died under controversial circumstances at Dowen College, another elite school in Lagos.
