A PRIMARY school teacher in Suva who pleaded guilty to one count of assault causing actual bodily harm had her sentence deferred to next week.

Sylvia Singh had slapped a Year 3 student at the school on July 19, 2018.

Suva Magistrate Deepika Prakash was not present in court hence the deferment of the sentence.

The case has been adjourned to September 17, 2018.
