DIVISIONAL education officer Northern Satya Nand Shandil has confirmed a report about the alleged glue sniffing incident involving 23 female boarders at a high school on Vanua Levu has been submitted to higher authorities.

Mr Shandil yesterday said a full report was compiled last week and submitted to headquarters in Suva.

"Our officers visited the school and compiled the report from there," he said.

"Operation in the school is now back to normal and the students are also in school. The report is in Suva and I will not comment any further on the issue."

The situation in Bua prompted the chiefs of Cakaunitabua to call on parents to play an active role in teaching their children respect and discipline.

The secretary for the Bose Vanua O Bua, Tui Wainunu Ratu Orisi Baleitavea, stated it was important for parents to ensure their children studied hard in school and not to resort to substance abuse.
