Surrey teens disciplined for sharing inappropriate student photos

Action of 12 senior students at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary investigated

Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary

A dozen students at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary in Surrey have been disciplined for allegedly circulating inappropriate photos of other students at the school.

According to Doug Strachan, communications manager for the Surrey School District, a student reported to school officials this week that some senior students had suggestive photos of girls at Lord Tweedsmuir.

“School and district officials began an investigation and police have been notified,” said Strachan, adding the discipline involved both boys and girls in Grade 11 and 12.

He couldn’t say whether the students were suspended or expelled, citing privacy concerns.

“It’s certainly unfortunate for the students involved,” Strachan said, “but also that a handful or so students of almost 2,000 at Lord Tweedsmuir can bring this kind of attention to the school when there have been many examples of very positive student initiatives and actions supporting their community in and outside of the school.”
