The Ministry of Education has expressed profound sadness following the tragic and untimely death of a 15 year old student of the George Charles Secondary School.

Jonius Auguste was among scores of children who opted to participate in the annual road race of the George Charles Secondary School on January 16th.

The race commenced about 9:45 am and almost half an hour later the first students crossed the finish line. But Jonius however fainted a short distance from the finishing point and was assisted by some students and a teacher.

However after complaining of pain in his abdomen, Jonius was transported to the La Croix Maingot health centre about 11:15am. Subsequently, the student accompanied by his mother, were transported to the Victoria hospital via ambulance, where he was admitted.

School officials were later informed of Jonius’ passing at about 3:47pm on the same day.
