Ratu Kadavulevu School (RKS) in Tailevu is in the spotlight again over allegations of assault.

The Fiji Sun has gathered that at least 20 students from the school have been expelled from boarding.

It is alleged that senior boarders had assaulted their junior boarders.

When Minister for Education Rosy Akbar was contacted yesterday, she referred all questions to her Permanent Secretary, Angela Jokhan.

Ms Jokhan said: “It is hard to gather information at the moment because it is a Sunday.”

Fiji Police Force spokesperson Savaira Tabua has confirmed that they were investigating two different cases over allegations of assault from RKS. Calls made to the principal of RKS were unanswered.

Recently, RKS students are believed to have been banned from the swimming pool at the Aquatic Centre in Laucala Bay, Suva. It is alleged that the RKS students had verbally harassed female students from International Secondary School (ISS).

Also, as RKS students were making their way to the Tailevu zone athletics competition, a bus driver had to make two stops at two different Police Stations for assistance after the students became rowdy.
