THE recent spate of student violence has left anti-bullying activists calling for justice for all parties involved.
Youth activist and anti-bullying advocate Pita Waqavonovono said the issue of violence in schools was not new.
"And bullying students because of the schools they go to needs to stop," Mr Waqavonovono said
He disagreed with calls for traditional apologies because saying sorry and dropping charges had "done less to end school rivalry".
He said it was time to take "the real perpetrators to court — the school administrators and old scholars who fuel this hate and the students that inflict injuries" on rivals.
"Students in our schools need justice, not a reason to drop charges," he said.
Mr Waqavonovono urged students to end the violence and let the courts handle the matter.
"Let us work to create a culture of positive change within our schools," he said.
Bullying, rebellion and hate are not signatures of your schools and should not be a part of your legacy.
"You have the answer to your problems in your own classrooms - access to your peers, it's time for students to take ownership of the problem and encourage each other not to fear or hate others from rival schools."
"In this case, only you, the students, can bring back peace to our streets."
