POLICE in the capital will be monitoring school students in the capital to ensure there are no further incidents of school brawls.
And this monitoring was seen yesterday as police officers boarded buses carrying SGS students in order to ensure no further retaliation after yesterday's attack on Suva Grammar School students and Marist Brothers' High School students.
Students of MBHS were also given a 4pm town curfew by school staff.
"Police will be monitoring students of both schools to ensure there isn't a repeat of the brawls which has so far injured three students. Students are being advised not to loiter around town and head straight home after school," police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said.
She said parents, teachers and heads of schools were once again being advised to be more vigilant in controlling their students and children.
"The force is also calling on parents and ex-scholars to help by talking to the students about the obvious implications of getting involved in such activities which will negatively affect both their immediate and long-term future," Ms Naisoro said.
Police Commissioner Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua said police would be out around the capital to stop school brawls.
