In the Bahamas, actions appear to not have any consequences. The spirit of piracy still prevails among us. There are no take backs and no do-overs. These kids..... their parents especially, and the entire Bahamas has learned much from this St. John's incident. The Anglican Education Authority should be applauding for beginning the move towards saving what's left of our country. Now, if we can only begin holding our parliamentarians and government leaders equally accountable, we may stand a very good chance to turn this great little country around.

They were handed down their consequences......... deemed suitable by the school for their actions. Now it is their choice to act like the young decent adults they should be in the future and move on. “We are free to choose our paths, but we can't choose the consequences that come with them.” AND “We all make choices, but in the end our choices make us.”

I fully support the school. I hope that SJC won't be the only school to take such a stance. I have seen countless videos of students in school uniforming dancing in a vulgar manner while on school premises; that's utterly inappropriate. In addition to that, I can't fathom why students would find it funny to pull a prank during Mass! These students have absolutely no respect. Well done Bishop Boyd!

Only wish we could find a punishment suitable for the parents (((((and I suspect some lousy 'with a capital L..." Teachers too))))

I agree wholeheartedly with all of the above comments. Let this be a lesson to those who caused the cancelation of events.

Only in the Bahamas could you have a vote such as we see at 3:41 on July 1st 2013. This is exactly why this country is so broken and cannot be fixed. The people have become worse than animals for the most part. And the sick ones are in the majority ! The vote says it all.
