Mandatory penis inspection? It was a prank played by our students, says school
SHAH ALAM - A letter instructing SPM male students to carry out mandatory penis inspection in a local school has gone viral but the schools says it was a "prank" played by one of their student.
SMK Seksyen 4 Bandar Kinrara administrative senior assistant Muhammad Asri Heman said neither the school or the education ministry had conducted such inspections as stated in the letter.
Asri said the student had posted the letter on his social media page. However, the reasons for the student to play such as prank is not known.
He said form 5 students were initially concern over easing themselves in toilet as they were under the impression that someone may check their private parts.
"The student was suspended," he told Sinar Daily.
“Action had been taken against him," he said, adding that the matter has been resolved.
The letter which has gone viral again in the past week has the logo of the education ministry on the right side of the letter, instructing form 5 students to attend a mandatory penis inspection. It stated the mandatory inspection at SMK Seksyen 4 Bandar Kinrara, Selangor is in accordance with Health Code 6.9.
It further asked students to report themselves at the media room (273).
“There will only be one makeup date on Wednesday, March 20 2019 at 8am and if you are unable to attend, a district official can arrange to meet with you at your own time,” the letter said.
Those who failed to attend the inspection will not be given their 2020 SPM slip issued by the Education Ministry, it further read.
“All circumcised males should report to the discipline room (280), and all uncircumcised males should report to room media room (273)," it further read.
