Samoa govt acts to rein in school brawls

The Samoa government has shut down Avele College from today pending the outcome of police investigations into continued violence involving students.

Most recently Avele College students brawled with students from Malua fou College.

Avele's principal has blamed the use of social media for escalating the fighting.

Malua fou College was due to open today after being closed on Tuesday.

The government has also decided that from next year its grants for Mission Schools will go directly to the schools, to encourage students to stop flouting police authority.
