Police are investigating after King’s School students allegedly killed Goanna
NSW Police have launched an investigation after a group of older pupils at King’s School allegedly killed a goanna at a school camp last month.
Police were told the reptile was killed on the afternoon of March 29 while students were visiting a camp in the Singleton Military District in the Hunter Valley.
School staff reported the incident to the police and the Ministry of Defense.
In a statement, the school said the incident happened at its annual cadet camp near the end of last semester.
“We can confirm that one goanna was killed by older students,” the school said.
“The school does not condone the behavior of these students. It is contrary to King’s values and behavioral expectations.
“As the incident is now in the hands of the police, the school is unable to comment further.”
Police said they were notified on April 5, sparking the investigation.
“While the investigation continues, anyone with information is asked to call The Hills Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000,” NSW Police said in a statement.
