Boarding case sorted

Salaseini Moceiwai

THE Education Ministry has wrapped up investigations into an incident that prompted 23 female boarders of a high school on Vanua Levu to run away from the school early this month.

Education permanent secretary Dr Brij Lal yesterday said the issue was sorted.

"I have visited the school and I managed to talk to the parents, teachers and the students," Dr Lal said.

"The issue has been solved and now all operations at the school are normal. Students are in school and we have solved this case accordingly."

When asked about the nature of the case, Dr Lal explained: "The case has been resolved and we are satisfied with the results."

Dr Lal added that the case was not related to glue sniffing as earlier reported.

It was earlier reported that the students ran away from the school after the principal told them off in regards to the alleged incident.
