Later, his thirsty classmates – at the school in the western Turkish province of Bursa – returned from PE and went straight for their bottles.
Twenty-five of them were then rushed to the Bursa Training and Research Hospital to be treated.
One parent said: ‘One of the pupils put glue in the water bottles of our children, the paramedics are checking them, luckily it seems they’re all OK.’
The child – known only as Z.A. has reportedly admitted what he had done and told teachers he was getting his own back on classmates who had bullied him.

Hospital spokesman Dr Efrail Atici said none of the youngsters were seriously ill and they all managed to return home safely.
It is not reported whether education officials are investigating the incident which happened in the Yildirim area of the city.
Police are unlikely to be involved as Z.A. is under the age of criminality which is 14 in Turkey.
