A 42-year-old primary school teacher pleaded guilty on Wednesday to committing indecent acts on a 13-year-old student by kissing him on the lips and giving him love bites on his neck and shoulder.

The teacher, who was seven years older than the boy's mother, had gone out on dates with him. She cannot be named as it could lead to the identification of the victim, who is a minor.

A district court heard that in early 2012, the boy, who was then in primary six, got to know the teacher as her son was in the same football team as he was. She was also in charge of the Malay dance course that was attended by his two sisters.

Soon, the victim and his siblings became friendly with the teacher and her four children. The teacher and the victim would also chat on the Facebook social networking website.
