Students of a Nadi school involved in a recent brawl, a video of which has been shared widely on social media will be taken to task.
Fiji’s Minister for Education Rosy Akbar said the ministry has zero-tolerance for such “unruly behaviour”, calling on the support of the public at large to take a more active role to curb the practice.
Students displaying violence and engaging in fights in school uniform, she said, “will be suspended from the school, there is zero-tolerance on violence.”
“Indiscipline should not only be a concern for parents and teachers, I urge the public to be more conscious of the messages being sent when such videos are shared on a public platform. An investigation will be carried out and the students involved will be taken to task. We will not tolerate any form of indiscipline,” Akbar said.
Akbar also warns students found in breach of the Student Code of Conduct on or off the school compound will be punished as per the Student Behaviour Management Policy.
