A drama, even within a school establishment.
This Thursday afternoon, a high school student in the first class of the Gambetta-Carnot school in Arras (Pas-de-Calais) ended her life by defending herself, confirms the rectorate of the Lille academy.
She was 16 years old, according to the prosecution.
When they arrived on the scene, the emergency services could not revive the victim and could only note the death, according to La Voix du Nord.
A letter before the drama
As reported by France Bleu, the high school student left a letter before taking action.
According to the academic director of the department, Joël Sürig, no alert suggested that the young girl would commit suicide.
A psychologist and a nurse immediately took charge of the students and staff witnesses of the tragedy, specifies the rectorate.
A listening cell made up of psychologists, social workers, nurses and doctors was set up in the school this Friday.
The rector and the academic director of the department will visit the site during the day.
An investigation was opened to find the causes of death by the Arras prosecutor's office, which is moving towards suicide.
