DUNGUN: Some 200 students of Sekolah Menengah Sains Dungun probably felt they were in a real live ghost story. They are convinced they saw ghosts flying around the school on Sunday -- in the classrooms, the dormitories and the assembly hall.
With many of the girls at the co-educational boarding school in hysteria, classes for the 600 students of the school were cancelled for the rest of the day.
On Monday, the hysteria repeated itself so the school was closed, and remained so as of yesterday. Many of the students who live nearby have been taken home by their parents, but the out-of-state students had no choice but to remain in their dormitories.
He also said that the number of girls involved in the mass hysteria was under 200.
The school principal did permit students, most of them girls, who were badly shaken up by the experience to be taken home by their parents and guardians, he said.
"Of course, several classes had to be cancelled due to the chaos but most of the students, mostly boys who did not seem to be affected, remained in school and attended classes," he said.
Dr Abdul Latiff said it is not uncommon for students, especially girls, in boarding schools to experience such things as seeing ghosts or some other kind of paranormal beings.
