Emergency meeting called in Tonga following school attack

An emergency meeting has been called this week by the Tonga Secondary School Principals Association, following what it says is the worst attack between rival schools.The police say ex-Tonga College student, 22 year old Taniela Halahuni, remains in a critical condition following Friday’s attack.Current Tonga College student, 15 year old Daniel Mahe Jr, is in a stable condition.About half of the 147 Tupou College students that were arrested in relation to the attack, remain in custody.The chair of the Secondary School Principals Association, Father Aisake Vaisima, says they have called an emergency meeting with principals to try to address the problem. “All efforts in the past have not included the students themselves, in the search for a solution. I believe if we are going further we’ll need to include the students in trying to come up with a solution to this problems, they probably will offer us the best solution.”Father Aisake Vaisima says the school rugby finals are to be postponed this coming weekend, in response to the attack.
