The Ministry of Education is calling on students of Marist Brothers High School and Suva Grammar School to concentrate on their studies.
This is because of forthcoming external examinations at the end of this term.
Permanent Secretary for Education Dr Brij Lal said the students should reconcile and concentrate on preparing for the examinations.
“Nothing good comes out of quarrels, fights and retaliation. Let’s come to some form of reconciliation, putting aside all differences, forgiving one another and treating each other as friends,” Dr Lal said.
“There are better things to focus on as the external examinations which starts on October 29 for form seven students and on November 5 for form six students. There are class projects and short tests to divert our attention away from street fights and brawls.”
He also reminded teachers to uphold virtues and values in classes to instill integrity, morality and responsibility in the students.
“Teachers, it is part of your responsibility to impart values and virtues to your students, not only in words but also in action. You should be modelling responsible behaviour and respect for one another and students should take their cues from you,” he said.
“I am pleading with parents to spend more quality time with their children advising them on the proper way to behave. Uncouth and unruly behaviour are not for students. Please also remind your children that no one is above the law,” Dr Lal said.
Minister for Education Filipe Bole also pleaded with parents to spend quality time with their children and warn them against unruly behaviour.
