A former primary school teacher who had a sexual relationship with her pupil confessed to her pastor and reported herself to the police, a district court heard on Monday.

The 32-year-old married mother of three, who faced six charges, admitted on Monday to two counts of having sex with the 13-year-old student in Sembawang Park in May 2011 and at her home two months later. She was charged in December last year.

The court heard on Monday that she and the victim became attracted to each other in March 2011 and they began sending each other SMS messages until late at night. Sometime in April, they went for a movie at Northpoint Shopping Centre in Yishun. That was the start of their relationship when they confessed their love for each other.

In late May, they went to Sembawang Park and had sex for the first time. They had sex two more times at an unknown HDB block in Choa Chu Kang Loop in late May and in June. They agreed to break off after the June incident but a day before school re-opened, they patched up.
