Royal School Dungannon statement 18th January 2021
RSD opposes racism in all its forms and takes seriously any report of racist activity.
Recently, the school was made aware of an online chat involving a large number of people, some of whom attend RSD, and which contained racist comments which the school condemns in every regard. Although this online chat took place at home and at night and had no direct link to RSD, as a matter of public interest the school reported this to the PSNI. RSD was the first and only organisation to take this action.
As a result of the school’s actions, this matter is now subject to a criminal investigation and no further comment can be made.
