LONDON, ON -- Stickers.

That’s the tactic officials at Mother Teresa Catholic Secondary School are using to cover up a former student’s revealing yearbook stunt.

In a photo of the school’s news team, the group responsible for producing the morning announcements, one student unzipped his pants, putting his testicles on display for the camera.

The act went unnoticed by staff until yearbooks were handed out to the school of 1,300 students last Friday.

When school officials noticed the yearbook contained nudity, the school stopped handing it out, with 360 copies left.

The eyebrow-raising photo will be replaced with a sticker of a Photoshopped version of the same image, which has been doctored to hide the student’s exposed parts.

“They’re going to put in those permanent stickers right on top of the old picture so it won’t wreck the page or the photo,” said John Boles, spokesman for the London District Catholic school board.

The company that published the yearbook is covering the cost of the stickers.

Students who already received a yearbook can get a sticker to put over the image if they wish, Boles said.

The stickers are expected to arrive at Mother Teresa on Thursday and staff hope to begin sticking them into the yearbooks Friday.

While students are responsible for putting together the yearbook, they work closely with a staff adviser, Boles said.

The school’s administration sent an apology letter home to parents Tuesday.
