School principal Gary Keating told CBC News that stopping hazing has been a priority at the school since he became principal eight years ago.
As part of the crackdown, any student found hazing a new student on school property will be suspended for a day. If caught again, the student will be sent home for the rest of the week.
Despite the punishments, Keating said, some students continue to haze their fellow classmates.
“I have kids myself that have gone through school, and I know that it happens. It’s kind of a ritual,” he said.
