A brawl between students of a government school and a prominant boys school in Suva yesterday left one student injured.
And police say the brawl at Sukuna Park will be investigated to find the culprits behind it.
Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri confirmed a student of the all-boys school was injured, adding police were not taking the issue of school brawls lightly.
"Senior police officers as well as our director of operations personally visited schools last month and spoke to students on this issue of school brawls but it seems their words have fallen on deaf ears," Inspector Sokomuri said.
"We have clearly warned the students about this kind of behaviour and so after our discussions with the school principals and vice principals, we have decided that we will continue our investigations," he said.
Police received reports of the brawl involving around 100 boys from the State-run school and just under a dozen students from the all-boys school in the late afternoon yesterday.
When The Fiji Times visited Totogo police station yesterday, students were just being released as concerned parents showed up later in the evening to enquire on the whereabouts of their charges.
Historically tensions between the two schools have run high in spite of numerous attempts at reconciliation over the years.
