ANOTHER secondary schoolteacher is being investigated by the police for allegedly assaulting a student this week.

The report was lodged by the student at the Taveuni Police Station.

Deputy Northern Police Commander SSP Fulori Rainibogi confirmed the teacher has been questioned.

"It is understood the student was playing with friends in the school compound and laughing out loud and swearing as well," she said.

"The teacher was in his house and heard the students laughing and swearing so he approached them.

"The report says the teacher pushed the student but we are still investigating."

SSP Rainibogi said the police were treating the case as assault.

"We are advising teachers to abide by the law and discipline students in a way that will not result in police investigation.

"There are other ways of disciplining children in which they will accept being taught the right way."
