A 12-year-old schoolboy had his DJing equipment confiscated after teachers busted him hosting a rave for fellow colleagues in the school bathroom.
Cael Bell, from Manchester, held an impromptu rave in the school toilet at St Antony’s Catholic College, during the lunch break on December 11.
According to his mum, Louise Bell, the boy sent out a Snapchat invite to “all the boys from year 8”.
The rave included complimentary soft drinks and Cadbury Twirls as Cael showed off his turntable skills with a DJ set.
The party lasted a good 30 minutes before the party police arrived and broke it up.
According to the mum, Cael’s speakers and lights have been seized. However, she has decided she will not be punishing his son for putting on the event.
“I had to laugh,” she told The Mirror. “It has been a terrible year and I couldn’t be angry with my son for trying to spread some cheer. When I got the call, it made perfect sense.”
According to the mum, the boy had been up and ready for school earlier than usual that morning, and rearing to go, which she admitted wasn’t quite normal behaviour for him.
“He loves music but is quite overwhelmed by his new-found fame. All his school friends are calling the house telling him he’s gone viral.
“We’re just proud that our son has brought a smile to so many people after such a difficult year. If you can’t laugh, then something’s not right.”
