CALGARY (660 NEWS) – The Calgary Board of Education (CBE) is speaking out after a nine-year-old girl committed suicide.

In a statement, the board says they’re actively looking into what led Amal to take her own life.

The CBE is gathering information from teachers, staff and students to see if there were concerns or issues leading up to her death.

Amal’s parents said that they were in the process of changing schools because she was being bullied.

The family came to Calgary just three years ago as refugees fleeing the Syrian war.
