Nine students from the St Therese High were expelled after being recorded in a video clip passionately kissing and caressing in pairs in the four corners of classrooms at the school located 60 km outside Rusape.
The video which went viral captures the male and female students fervently cuddling each other.
It sparked outrage, with most parents and education authorities berating the school authorities for laxity of supervision.
In the 1:38 seconds video clip that was shot using a cellphone, the deeply involved students were captured kissing, caressing and cuddling in the classroom.
One of the female students is clearly heard chuckling and commenting that “Siyana neni iwe” (leave me alone).
The comment was directed at the person recording the video.
When reached for comment on Wednesday last week, the school head Mrs. Euphrasia Mudiwa refused to entertain questions
“I cannot talk to you. Instead, you should talk to the education secretary Mr Lawrence Chibvuri in Mutare. St Therese High School belongs to the church, and he is the one empowered to talk to you. You can also ask officials from the parent ministry in Rusape,” said Mrs. Mudiwa.
However, a source involved the school told Manica Post that the students caught in the romance debacle have since been sent packing by the school.
“The students featuring in that video clip have since been expelled from the school. Some were boarder students and others were day scholars.
