Primary seven and six pupils of Kitino-Tima primary school in Omel sub county, Gulu district on Tuesday assaulted the school head teacher, accusing her of failure to deliver for them the beginning of term examinations and weekly tests.
The over 100 pupils also used sticks to thrash Lakaraber Filder Mary before chasing her away from the school and locking her office.
Okot Ayoli Tony, the Parent Teachers Associations (PTA) chairperson confirmed the incident, adding that Lakaraber hasn’t returned to school and her office remains under lock and key.
When contacted for comments over the matter, Lakaraber, the embattled head teacher, declined to speak to our reporter.
Okidi James Cosmas, the Deputy Gulu Resident Commissioner, said the incident is being investigated.
This comes after Parents of the school last month rejected the transfer of Lakaraber to the school and went a head to close her office in protest.
However following a mediation meeting organized and conducted by the District Education department, parents later accepted her to work at the school.
