Two boys wearing boxing gloves were seen trading punches as a group of at least 10 others watched on.

A second video showed four of them allegedly "running away from the back of the block and car park when police arrive".

Police on the scene

8world understands that the police arrived on the scene due to the incident and that the students were sparring and not fighting.

School investigating

Sebastien Barnard, who is the Communication & Events Director at IFS, shared with Mothership:

IFS always takes these situations very seriously, even outside the school, involving its students disturbing public order and putting themselves in danger.

Having been made aware of the allegations, the IFS Principal has initiated an investigation with the relevant student services of the school to verify and clarify the facts and take the appropriate disciplinary measures.
