Goodhope Senior Secondary School (GSSSS)boys’ hostels almost went up in flames after an unspecified group of male students set 14 mattresses on fire on Wednesday afternoon. The affected hostel block has a population of 240 students, authorities have revealed.

The incident comes barely a fortnight after widely publicised acts of indiscipline at the school, which led to the institution’s temporary closure.

Insiders say it appears the fire was started intentionally since a pile of partially burnt papers were found within the hostel premises. “Upon arrival at the boys’ hostels, there was a pile of semi-burnt papers in there. It seems that is where the students initially wanted to start the fire, but for some reason failed,” a source said.
