Chairman of the Ruavatu School board in North East Guadalcanal had apologised to all the victims affected by the incident over the weekend.
Board chairman, Eric Robson Miti in an interview said, the incident that happened over the weekend was not a good ending for the school’s academic year.
He said the board and management of Ruavatu School are working closely with communities and Education Authorities in Guadalcanal to short out the issue quickly, before the school resumes its academic year in 2015.
Mr. Miti said on behalf of the board, he wanted to apologise to the students victimised by the incident, their parents and relatives.
He said, it was an inhuman action which disturbed the school.
He added there are no plans to close down the school for good.
“We want to sort out the problem before classes resume next year,” he said.
He said the action caused by the teenagers painted a bad image for the surrounding communities.
Mr Miti also suggested that a police post should be built near Ruavatu School to address some of these problems.
The chairman is appealing to chiefs, elders and communities surrounding Ruavatu School to work closely with the school management to address such situation in the future.
Board members and Guadalcanal Provincial Education Authority of Guadalcanal will soon organize a peace and reconciliation ceremony for all those who affected by the incident before the academic year kicks off next year.
