A video of two schoolboys fighting in a washroom as their peers watch on has been going viral online.
A school spokesperson from Tampines Secondary School has since confirmed that the incident took place in their school and that the fight was a friendly “sparring session arranged for fun” that took place after school on Friday (3 May).
In the video, that was first published on Reddit by u/Lord_Vile1, a shirtless student was seen exchanging punches with another student in a red t-shirt with the words “Team Sirius” – the name of one of Tampines Secondary’s houses – emblazoned upon it.
The boy wearing red initially holds his own against the other student before giving up as his opponent rains punches on him. The video shows at least eight other boys observing the clash.
The boy who was not wearing a shirt stops hitting his opponent shortly after the boy in red is backed into a corner. The boys displayed sportsmanship as they hugged each other after the fight. Watch the video HERE.
The video of the fight quickly went viral on Reddit, garnering over a thousand upvotes across two posts on two subreddits.
A Tampines Secondary School spokesperson has since revealed that the school has investigated the incident and found that there was no animosity between the pupils.
Revealing that no one was injured in the “sparring session,” the spokesperson said: “Nonetheless, we view this incident seriously and have counselled the students, who have expressed remorse for their actions.” He added that the school and the students’ parents are working together to teach the pupils to learn from the incident and take responsibility for their actions.-/TISG
