T1W5.2010 CLOZE 10: Factual Recount: Banned for having a tattoo (2) The boy, who was in the Normal Academic stream, was repeating Sec 3 before he was suspended. He had [1] exposed a tattoo of a dragon head on his chest when he removed his T-shirt while playing basketball in school one afternoon. Why not [2] agree to remove the tattoo? Madam Yip said, “I don't want to make him remove the tattoo. If he does it, it has to be because he wants to do it [3] himself.” However, the boy claims he is afraid of laser removal because of what his friend went through. Said Madam Yip, “He came back and told me that he was very scared and that his friend's parents had forced him to go through the first laser session. He [4] broke into tears as he told me about the ugly scars left on his friend.” Her son also told her that his friend had returned to school after [5] fulfilling the condition of going through the first laser treatment. The situation however, remained deadlocked. And Madam Yip began looking for another school that [6] would take in her son. The school said it would help her son transfer to another school if he refused to remove the tattoo, Madam Yip said. After waiting, she [7] approached the Ministry of Education for help. “I wrote the school a [8] note of apology for the trouble my son had caused and informed them that I had approached the authorities for help,” said Madam Yip. The e-mail, dated 17 Apr, was shown to The New Paper. It said, “Maybe as a third party we will not forgive him. But as a principal and a mother, we've got to give him a chance.” Added Madam Yip, “I am very against tattoos but what can I do since it is [9] already on his skin.” The teenager has not attended classes for the [10] last two months. His mother claimed she approached seven schools on her own in the two months, but they [11]declined to accept her son. “The seven schools I called up said they could not take my son in because it's in the middle of a school term,” said Madam Yip. The boy's former school later helped to [12] refer the boy to three schools. One school was too far away from her home and the other asked for the tattoo to be removed. The third school agreed to accept the boy on [13] condition that his tattoo is not exposed to other students. He will join that school after the mid-year holidays later this month. Madam Yip told The New Paper that her son will try to [14] catch up on his schoolwork. She said, “I am very thankful for this [15] chance given to him and my son has given the school his assurance that he will work hard and do as well as he can.” 1 4 7 10 13 2 5 8 11 14 3 6 9 12 15
