What do you do if you lose a camera at school? What will you do when your camera will be lost in your school function?

You apparently mistook classmates for "friends." A good administrator would get to the bottom of your problem, and some parental contact might help the situation. But, as a previous post pointed out, after you buy a new camera, be sure to never let it out of your sight if you choose to bring it to school again. This is why many expensive electronic items are forbidden from being brought to school: It's too big of a temptation for dishonest classmates and wannabe thieves.

Since the person who ended up with it may not know who it belongs to, I suggest first telling the coach and then asking for an announcement to be made at that debate or the next debate.  You can also post an announcement in the school paper.

Probably, you are going to have to buy a new camera.  But with something that big, you might get lucky.  Someone might feel bad about taking it.  So I would start by going to the school office and asking for it.  Then I would ask the school if someone could announce that I lost my camera and ask for it to be returned.  If all else fails, maybe offer a reward?
