The Ministry of Education is in receipt of an email that is being circulated with pictures of school children engaging in explicit sexual acts. The email maliciously seeks to suggest that the students are from the Verchilds High School.

The ministry has advised the general public that the students are NOT from the Verchilds High School. Although the female students in the pictures appear to be wearing uniforms that resemble the uniform of the Verchilds High School, the uniforms worn by the male students show quite clearly that they are not from Verchilds High School. Further, the classroom setting and furniture shown in the pictures are also clearly not found at the Verchilds High School or, in fact, at any secondary school in St. Kitts.

The Ministry of Education is requesting that students of the Verchilds High School be dissociated from this pornographic material.
